Six Billion Pounds of Video Games Were Sold Last Year (And Other Weird Environmental Facts)

Luke Plunkett of Kotaku writes, "We often think of video games and hardware in terms of units sold, or money made. We don't usually think of them in terms of how much they weigh, or how much crap needs to be dug out of the ground to make them. Which is why this infographic is interesting reading.

"Sure, this is yet another advertisement masquerading as education, but since this one is actually mildly educational, I'll let that slide. Especially since trying to think of 5555 Statues of Liberty all piled up somewhere has made my mind explode just a little." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Nintendo, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
