Why today's consoles are terrible for the environment, but tomorrow's will be so much better

Polygon: "From an environmental point of view, today's consoles are extremely poorly designed, wasting energy needlessly on non-core functionality. A PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 uses 25 times more energy than a laptop to stream a movie, and 60 times more energy than an Apple TV.

So, while you are whiling away the hours watching Orange is the New Black or playing FIFA 14, the ice caps are melting, palm trees are being laid low by apocalyptic hurricanes, kiddies are huddling on rain battered corrugated rooftops, all that stuff."
