    Using a British xbox in Japan?

    Right, I have a friend who now lives in Japan. He bought an xbox while he was home over Christmas and he was told he could use it over there no problems. However now it seems he is having difficulty getting it to work, anybody got any ideas of how he can get it all sorted?

    Rep for any help.

    Japan uses 100V - you will need some kinda adapter - someone better qualified should be more precise.

    I think he'll be needing a "step-up transformer". The adapter linked to above will allow him to plug his Xbox into the wall but as Japan only uses 110v, that won't be enough to power the Xbox which would need 220v.. So the solution is getting one of these step-up transformers which you plug in between the wall and the Xbox and it beefs up the 100v coming out of the wall to 220v..

    That's my understanding of it anyway.. might not be 100% correct.

    Transformers usually cost too much.
    Tell him to just buy a Japanese 360 powerbrick/cable.
    Works perfectly

    Considering the UK uses PAL2 and Japan NTSC screen format, does there need to be some kind screen converter?

    The screen format doesn't matter anymore. Years ago the standard definition format was different. These days pal bs foreign formats only get caught by region locking (which Xbox shouldn't have if I recall) and power source conversion.

    it will shows in b&w

    It would make things a lot easier if you actually put.

    1.What Xbox it is, Xbox 360 or Xbox One.

    2. What do you mean by "difficulty to get it to work" ? That could mean anything. I.e. No power, Power but no picture etc etc.

    The Xbox One didn't exist 4 years and 10 months ago.

    Lol, didn't see the date, maybe after 4 years "Spacewarrioress" thought he/she had finally figured it out.
