Eurogamer's Digital Foundry have been digging a little deeper into the Xbox One hardware.

A "highly placed source" at Microsoft has confirmed to them that the Xbox One system was designed with the goal being to create a system that would not only last for 10 years, but that would be able to be switched on for that entire period of time.

does this mean that ms learn from RROD ?
i think so, ms builds x1 with max durability in mind

I bet no one is brave enough to test this theory.
I'm wrong for the right.

The thing is that parts still might deteriorate from heat and games may run less than optimal.
My 360 won't red ring but it still takes a minute to load the dash.

I might. I wonder if I can keep the ps4 on for a really long time too. I'm lazy so if I can just switch back and forth without having to get up that's great for me.

Did someone mention quality hardware and Microsoft in the same sentence? Pardon me if I'm a skeptic, but history does not support this theory.

Like literally always on? No, don't test it. What a waste of energy, just have the damn thing fully shut off when not in use.
