Tink about how many items in your home that you keep powered on day after day. There’s the refrigerator, probably your router and more besides. What do you think about an always powered game console? Is that pushing it? It isn’t good for your electric bill anyway.
Eurogamer has reported that Microsoft sources have said that the recently revealed Xbox One was specially designed to last for 10 years at the minimum. Not just that. They were quoted saying that you can leave the Xbox One powered on throughout the entire 10 years, and it will still run fine.
Most people would never leave their Xbox One turned on all the time, but it is nice to have the option I guess. Whether it actually lasts that long while powered on remains to be seen however.
