Using a USA purchased Xbox in the UK

 I have an Xbox 360, 8 months old purchased  in the USA with, obviously a 110v power supply.  If I take it to the UK and buy a 220v power supply, will it work. If so, good. If not, why.

It won't work as it will probably blow the power supply as the power supply would be too big.

You can however buy another power supply for Europe if you call Xbox Support.

You will also have to import games from the USA, unless the games are region-free.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

If you could buy a new PSU direct from Microsoft it  would work connected to a UK mains socket.  Otherwise you would need a Step Up power transformer.  Games could be a problem. You would either need to make sure the games you buy a region free or import the U.S versions.
