This would have been an awesome month of free games if it was 2008.

Why wouldn't it work? I'm actually far more surprised you are surprised at all. If you owned a console from 70`s or 80`s they would still work if they weren't dead the last time they were used. Unless they got wet before plugging them in or maybe static shock from dust or an emp. Electronics dont die just sitting in storage unless exposed to elements.
Actually they do just die.
Capacitors, batteries...etc all have a finite life, many systems require these things be replaced and hope to god they didn't leak electrolytic fluid on the traces as that stuff will eat thru copper and silicon.

Sure its possible but highly improbable. If unplugged and stored where moisture doesn't get to them and dust is cleaned before using they should be fine many decades later. If we were talking 80`s and earlier Id be more inclined to agree but these days electronics are made pretty well.

Caps are just temp batteries. They dont hold a constant charge like a battery does so they wont degrade as easily. As I said before if they die being stored they were well on their way before they were ever stored

I have a microwave used daily I bought new in 1994 still works. Honestly I have a lot of electronics from the 90`s like a home audio receiver, car stereo amps, etc. I cant see something made in the 2000`s dying just because it is being stored.

If electronics died that easily every vehicle with a fuel injection system would have an expiration date and/or require the computer to be changed every 10 to 15 years.

I did have an electronics class in 1990 (which doesn't mean much today) and worked on my share of boards in tv`s, laptops, gaming consoles, etc. Ive pretty much worked on most things in a normal home that uses electric (including in home electrical wiring, vehicle electrical, etc.). I'm basically a jack of many trades that likes to fix my own things but no expert.

Yep, and sometimes they can break when sitting in storage for years unused even... Which is why I'm happy Microsoft is actually taking BC so seriously. Our physical games (if taken care of) will most likely last our entire lifetimes but the consoles sure as hell won't. Cloud storage and other forms of backup are important for digital games and saves too because memory cards, hard drives, etc. eventually break with regular usage too.

Sadly the sixth generation consoles seem to be manufactured like pieces of crap. I've personally experienced those working fine, being stored for a few years safely and then you bring it out one day and all of a sudden the piece of shit won't read discs or has other problems like overheating even though it wasn't abused. Disc read errors were a huge problem during that generation as well and then of course there was the infamous RROD during the next generation...

Now this I agree with but again heat is what caused the RROD errors. Nothing to do with storage. MS rushed the consoles out the door to compete with Sony and they used inferior parts in the early 360`s. Most of those issues were addressed with the slims.

There were others but the RROD was the main error. I refluxed a few 360`s with varying success. I still have two of them and one of them had the RROD and I refluxed it once and it still works today. Basically the contacts would crack and cause the error. You'd have to get some liquid flux and reflow the chips to fix the contacts. I also replaced a few lasers in the dvd drives in the 360`s.The disc read problem absolutely had nothing to do with storage. The laser become faulty from wear and tear just needed to be replaced. They cost like $6 back then. You just had to tear the dvd drive apart. Modded and jtagged some consoles too.

Modded the XBox and PS2 too. The first mod chips required soldering. The PS2 and Xbox were a pain to mod. Everything had to be done in CMD. Things became easier once softmods in Windows were created.

Does anyones xbox 360 still work? I powered my xbox 360 slim kinect probably after 5 years and was surprised it does. Been playing kinect sports and fitness games, so i can avoid quarantine weight gain lol
Your...your Xbox 360 works?!? You are the ONLY one. You have the last remaining 360 that works! Sell it for millions!!!!
As far as your weight problem, you should lift weights and do cardio. I've lost tons of fat and gained slabs of muscle during quarantine. Good luck getting in 360 shape. I'm in 'loaded barbell, compound lifts' shape.
P.S. I heard rumors someone in Timbuktu has a working 360, but could just be rumors.
