A new study from the Electric Power Research Institute shows that there is a difference -- and sometimes a huge difference -- in the amount of energy game systems use.
Of course it is lol. Collecting dust is a huge energy saver. Has to be plugged in and used first :) Don't attack me guys I just had to make that joke.
sadly, your right. majority of the gamers are focused on the next gen. sorry wii fanboys, but your the minority, so deal with it. (ofcourse, im excluding the broad audionce of gamers that are soccer moms and kids) i bought the wii, played mario, zelda, and brawl, thats it. dont even argue anything else, cus everything other then those are hardly decent at best
But the most harmful to the environment
"are hardly decent at best" In your opinion.
Wii fanboys? This exist?
Maybe you should buy some more games for the wii and then maybe you will see the wii is superior to the competition. The only _good_ game on the PS3 for example is MGS4, the rest just plain sucks.
So when I was playing the highest rated game of the year on my wii, and other people were playing games of lesser quality on other consoles, I was saving the planet more! That's awesome!
@ KruLLit You were joking...right?
@kramun lol your still using energy, just less of it ;)
@ tigertron no I was dead serious, maybe you should consider what I said. Some people just like good game mechanics instead of graphics.
are you saying all games with great graphic don't have great gameplay mechanic as well? that's like the dumbest comment ever!
@ KruLLit So what you're saying is that the PS3 only has games which focus on graphics and have crap gameplay? bar MGS4? Maybe you should do some research. Have you heard of games like: Uncharted Uncharted 2 Killzone 2 LBP Resistance Resistance 2 Motorstorm Motorstorm Pacific Rift Infamous Heavy Rain GT5 Warhawk Siren Blood Curse Ratchet and Clank: TOD Ratchet and Clank: QFB Ratchet and Clank: ACIT Clearly not, because if you had you wouldn't have said that. The list above is only a small example of what the PS3 has to offer. I haven't even touched on what else is coming out on the PS3, or its multiplat games.
lol i laughed, thats pretty funny.
Bahh! You beat me to the joke! Props to you though.
so true. lol. dont even touch it anymore.
I sold mine to my mom. I originally bought it for my wife and she never used it. I have a 360 so you know I never used the wii. My mom wanted it for wii fit to help lose some weight. She used it once... the day I set it up for her. LOL
Well ofcourse no one uses it. Duh

Ranked Most Energy Efficient 1st wii 2nd ps3 3rd xbox 360
Makes sense the other platforms are running on more demanding hardware
The wii has a terrible energy to fun ratio.
It has slower processors, of course it uses less energy.
I do love my wii, but not because it's energy efficient. As it stands, I pay roundabout $60 a month for electricity to run my gaming PC, PS3 (fatty), wii, and keep my AC at a very comfrtable temperature. I'm not very concerned about energy, as no matter what I do, the price is ALWAYS between $50 and $60 a month.
Yeah. Heating really kills it. It'd be cheaper to heat the place with a few old 360's. Joking btw.
Well obviously the wii is the most energy efficient, its hardware isnt as demanding as the 360 or ps3.Anyone with a brain could've figured this out -_-
It's easy to use very little energy when the console has as much capabilities as an iPod touch
It actually has far less...
In other news the Wii was ranked as the least powerful... moving on to real news now.
the 360 is probably the worst for the world. cant imagine how many dead ones are currently sitting in landfills. Thats a lot of plastic in the ground.
I hope theres not a war over this article cause that would be stupid. Its pretty obvious that the Wii would consume less energy than the other 2. I am impressed with how quiet the PS3 runs when compared to the old 360. That was one of the things that i hated the most about the console was the ammount of noise it made. And before you accuse me of trolling i know that the new slim 360 is a lot quieter than its predecossor.
