In regards to the Xbox One, they stated that the console was designed to be always-on for 10 years. In other words, the console was designed with longevity in mind because they wanted to avoid another RROD fiascle, which can be seen by just looking at the the huge heat sink, fan, and external power brick. Hence, it doesn't mean that this generation will actually last 10 years.
