Smile xbox 360 in dubai

Ok guys, so I wanna get my brother an xbox 360 this christmas and wanted to ask: what's the best place in dubai to get one? How much will it be approx?

I'm coming over from the States and I'd get one from here but from what I have heard it's quite problematic especially with the voltage differences and the whole dvd region thing.

Thanks a lot!
Chris

You want us to do your Christmas shopping research for you?

I suggest you try Sharaf DG (several banches) as their prices are unlikely to be beaten. You may like to contact them yourself to ask the price.

You could bring one from the states. Plenty of NTSC games, as much as PAl games here, and I got a 220v AC adapter from some local games shop in the Al Ain Center. No complaints with my US 360 here... even kickin ass on COD4 on XBL

Your dedication wasn't videoed in Dubai. I loved the green grass, green trees, (not dust covered) and most of all the paling fence, loved it:

I went to Al Ain today and couldn't find one. I tried the two major stores that had AC adapters too, and no luck.
