You can get an XBOX in Japan for cheaper but I wouldn't say cheap. 16,800 yen (US$155) is what I think is the street price now. The XBOX can only play games from the region it was bought from unless you have a modchip installed. Japanese XBOX can only play Japanese games, American XBOX can only play American games. I'm not sure what region the Philippines XBOX is made for so you might have to ask someone else.
