Enervee ranks consoles by power consumption

The Enervee™ Score for Video Game Consoles is calculated based on performance per power consumption. Current models range from 4.58 to 36.70 performance (scaled) per kWh. This number is converted into an easy energy efficiency rating from 0 to 100 (best). For Gaming Consoles, the CPU, GPU, and system memory components have the biggest impact on energy efficiency. (Microsoft, Nintendo, Ouya, PS3, Sony, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Those are some efficient machines.

Some of the older models are not though.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised the PS3 Super Slim ranked so high. I realise they've had a few years to refine the components but the original PS3 ate power like a hairdryer... Well done Sony.

I'm trying to figure out there reasoning for places it at 2 because the Wii U and the Wii are both more efficient according to there chart.

The stats of the 360 Slim aren't not that different from the PS3 Slim but its 5th and the PS3 is second? Also, if they are going to go by revised consoles, then why don't they put the Wii Mini up there?

One thing is certain. Whoever wrote this comparison favors Sony. It makes no sense.
