Xbox One Power Brick Technical Details Shown, Compared With Xbox 360’s Power Brick


The Xbox One is nearly 2 weeks away from being launched. One lucky individual got his Xbox One early because of some confusion at Target. Moonlightswami is the lucky individual to get his Xbox One early, but was struck with a grim reality that Microsoft doesn’t take such things lightly. He ended up getting his console banned. He later confirmed that it was just his console that was only banned and not his Xbox LIVE Gamertag.

Moonlightswami has been providing us pictures of his Xbox One and many other things he is coming across that he deems picture worthy. Recently, he just posted a picture which shows the technical power details of the Xbox One’s power brick.

xbox-360-power-supply-specsSeeing how the input on the Xbox One’s power brick shows 100-127v, which means the power supply of Xbox One isn’t universal as the Xbox 360’s. This means that people who will be importing the Xbox One from the U.S. will have to plug the power supply of the Xbox One to an outlet with 100-110v. Sony’s PlayStation 3 and the upcoming PlayStation 4 both have universal power supplies which means you can easily import and connect them to an outlet of your choice.

What do you think about this? Should Microsoft have gone with a universal power supply as well? Let us know in the comments below.

    it doesn’t matter because the xbox one is launching in NA and EU at the same time so no one in EU should be ordering one from NA.

      .What do you mean?

      • Dave

        both versions of the power brick are being released at the same time, just order the one that you need

    • Wissam F. Ismaeil

      buying one from the US is about 200$ cheaper than EU so if you are on a visit to US it would be a good idea to get it from there.

    Yes they should have had a universal power supply. Plus not a power brick. That is so Atari 2600!
