Capacitor Plague, what consoles , if any, are prone to it?

Just a simple question, i know for a certain time frame a lot of bad capacitors were made, 1999-2007, but i have never heard of them actually affecting a console, were console gamers lucky?

Never heard of it before in my life.
So probably more obscure consoles? I have no idea.

I don't think this effected consoles. It was more stuff like TVs, PCs, um.. lamps. I think consoles managed to avoid using the components that were "plagued", thankfully.

travis has a spectacular aura abouttravis has a spectacular aura abouttravis has a spectacular aura about

A capacitor is an essential part of all electronics. Its purpose is to help regulate current. Without capacitors nothing would work.

PS3, wii, and xbox 360. All of them had capacitor issues. They didnt take into consideration how overpowered these systems are for the capicitors that were used. The capacitors were often times smaller than they should have been and very poor quality. The wii had the least amount of problems, but it was also the weakest system. From what i can gather, these issues were all taken care of some time ago. Ever wonder why they made so many different styles of these systems? They used it as cover so they could fix the problems...
