After many happy hours using emulators to satisfy my gaming needs, a trip home to the UK offered me an opportunity to get a pre-owned Xbox 360 Slim 250Gb. Bringing this back to Thailand as luggage worked out cheaper than buying a pre-owned machine in Thailand. Not only this, I have a 1 year retailer warranty for the machine, so I could get the machine repaired/replaced through this on a possible future trip to the UK later this year.
I bought the Xbox 360 in GAME, as well as a few good pre-owned games including Lego Star Wars II (Original Trilogy), Forza Motorsport 4 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. As well as this, I bought a cheapo headset so that I could chat to XBL friends online.
