Well our xbox(the slim one) after 8 months of use never got such a problem.I think these problems are fixed in the slim version.
We were too in such dilemma and chose the xbox 360 slim as it had a better(heard) gaing experience.We were not keen on the blu ray because y father;s laptop has one and till now I think we have never played a blu ray disc.More over this slim version is having wifi too

for xbox you can get games from playasia they usually have games for sale for asian reigion (including Australia) if your in India.

IF your in USA you might need NTSC Region games ( not sure if that applies)

My bro is in USA, he will be arriving next week, so he can order it and bring it to India.

Can you elaborate it further that NTSC part.

Congrats mukeshus! XBOX has games locked to different regions, I got mine from UK(PAL Region) which is same as India. In USA you have NTSC J and U. These are basically transmission systems.
I am not sure but you may face problems playing NTSC games here on PAL Television sets.

I have a Samsung LED 46" TV Full HD 1080p.
Hope it wouldn't be a problem, it has 4 HDMI ports, out of which 1 is connected to Home theatre.

Its getting cracked AMG, but i think its not recommended.
If the cracking isn't done properly then whole kinect would be useless.

Heard that many games are available online in Amazon for buying at low prices.

Well when you bring the system from US(NTSC) here in India, you"ll have to buy NTSC games for it. As PAL games won't work on it. It will be a tough task and they will be costly here as well.
Of course all this problem vanishes if you get your console modded(or cracked or hacked).Then you can play any game on it(even pirated ones, although it will be illegal).
Hope it solves your problem. [:)]

Edit: even if you don't get it modded, there are some games which are region free. You can play them on your console as well other then the region specific(NTSC/PAL)games.

Hey Mukesh,
For NTSC System thats a transmission signal from your console to TV.
If you have got the console from India its PAL and you may not be able to play a NTSC DVD in that for sure.

So when you buy your games makes sure they are either Region free or according to your system.

As Safire90 said above UK INDIA AUS and most of the Asian countries are based on PAL but US and european countries have NTSC signals

Please make sure where you buy it from.
IN USA, you can order some region free games from Play-asia.com they are cheap and you can find according to region

Thanks for the info guys, a recent update from my friend that there is no such restrictions on New Xbox'es released in 2011, i heard from him that Xbox is supporting both the formats, is this true.

And there is no region based restrictions, can you guys shed some info on this.
Thanks in advance.

IMHO Kinect is just an overhyped gimmick.

I mean if a guy is a fitness freak, why not just go to the gym.

Ya it's true that most of the games coming today are region free. But some good, actually great games like(HALO 4, Combat Evolved, Forza MS4, Gears of War 3, Halo Reach) are region specific.
Anyways you can get these games from the US as well.
