just use your old HDD if you have an american 360.
if not just buy an american HDD, it will work with the japanese system

like suika said, all HDD's work with each other, any HDD will work on any console, except you might have to change the language to match the console due to annoying text glitches.
(I had a US xbox with 60 GB HDD just swapped the HDD i used to my JPN arcade one, works fine)
if you want DLC you also have to make a JPN xbox live account along with you registered in a valid address in japan. you also need to buy JPN microsoft points, which are very expensive. ($60 for 3500 msp)
you also might need a lot of HDD space, because one stage outfit takes up to around 200-500 mb.
you can basically have a JPN account for im@s DLC and your other account for gaming, as long as the users are all on the same HDD they can all use the addon; except for arcade games.

For price reasons or...?

if you previously own a 360 console under your country name, just swap the HDD.
but if your getting a 360 for the first time ever, yeah just get the pro.

Under local legislation I can only import goods tax-free within a $300 price limit. So it appears that only Arcade fits this category. Then I'll have to get a power unit and a HDD separately. The total would seem to be $290+200+100+100=690. As for MS points I think they'll also ne necessary once I get the console itself.


At the moment I have $500+300 on my account but that's all I have left. Say, today I went to the eye doctor in my continuous attempts to improve my eyesight. They recommended a laser surgery which would deal with my shortsightedness and also help treat the consequences of the trauma I had back when I was a little kid. The operation was pretty painful as they tend to be but it was successful, and my eyesight is improving now. But the doctor recommends to avoid using PC for a few days, so I let you know I can be out of touch for some time.
Also, this medical service cost me 2k dollars, the price of a decent HDTV. So you can see that if you have any kind of health issues your bank account can reach zero values within a few days no matter how much it deposed there.

But you see losing your eyesight will make the price of any HDTV useless since you won't be able to see it.

DO NOT
put any credit card information on xbox live, you cannot remove it.
once you put it in microsoft will force you to pay every 3 months for live and you can't do anything about it. they will constantly charge you, even if you dont want it. and the only way to remove it is to call support and ask them to remove it, you need voice confirmation of the user for the card on the account and then they will most likely cancel all your microsoft subscription that you have (for example you bought a 12 month live card and put it in your account like a week ago they will cancel that too) or ban you from live

also, if your cousin cancels the card or the card expires, they will still charge it and if they cannot validate the card they say that you owe money to microsoft as an excuse because they renewed your subscription and then ban you from live as well.

ask your cousin to buy you prepaid cards like i did with my uncle and then tell them to tell you the code over the phone or something lmao.

I have my credit card info on Xbox Live, but they've never auto-deducted fees from my account.

im pretty sure they do, they automatically deducted $20 every 3 months out of my moms account because xbox live renewal before.

edit: It was recently added a week ago that you can now turn off your automatic renewal for your xbox live subscription off when you have a card on the account, so they wont constantly charge you. but you cannot remove the card still.
