    Hey,

    I have my game systems connected a few feet away from the kitchen where every morning there is cooking. Question: Will this harm my systems and games? Note: The game systems are covered with a bed sheet and the games are in plastic containers with a box of backing soda inside. Thanx.

    What are you afraid of, exactly? Splattering grease and the like? Also, I hope you're not keeping your consoles covered while using them, because they should have plenty of ventilation to prevent overheating...unless we're talking NES, SNES, Genesis, or the like.

    No. The games are to far to have grease splatter on them. But will the grease in the aroma (kind of like cigarette smoke) will harm the systems? And the cover comes off when in play.

    I don't think it would, but you never know. Also, depending on how close they are to your cooking appliances, the heat from the kitchen could also be detrimental to your consoles' health.

    Grease and smoke are airborne. There are small carbon deposits left in their wake. In theory, this can build on a system's laser.

    I'd be more concerned with the power though. Microwaves, mini fridges, and toaster ovens are electrical draws. Today's modern console needs as much juice as it can get. If you're sharing a strip plug or even the same electrical breaker circuit, you could be short changing your machine.

    Which game systems are we talking about? I know the 360 has a lot of vents that smoke and small particals can get into. I would be more concerned about heat then bacon grease splatter.

    Mine's roughly the same distance away (kitchen/living area are ajoined) and although I've only been living here a month and a half, I really doubt there would be any immediate problem.

    Also, do you not cook any other meals besides breakfast? Just wondering.
