I live in India and a friend imported a Xbox One from US which I bought from him at a fair price. Now here's a nice kicker, apparently all the US model's power bricks are 100-127v whereas all EU/Asia models are 110-240v. Anyone see where I'm going with this? I plugged in a 100-127v power brick to a 220v outlet, and the next thing I see is a huge amount of smoke coming out of the brick and the damn thing is useless. So here I am sitting with a brand new X1 without a working power brick.
In my defence, MS is a moron. Almost everything I've bought supports universal voltage (I mean the EU/Asia model supports...why can't the US ones? Surely it doesn't save them a dime) so I didn't really bother to check with it much.
