Awesome! That’s an incredibly low power consumption for suspend mode on PS5.

“I am also very pleased to announce the next generation PlayStation console will include the possibility to suspend gameplay with much lower power consumption than PS4 (which we estimate can be achieved at around 0.5 W). If just one million users enable this feature, it would save equivalent to the average electricity use of 1,000 US homes.“

“ From an operations point of view, we will complete a carbon footprint assessment of our gaming services and will report the energy efficiency measures we employ at our data centers. We are committed to informing consumers of energy efficient console set-up and use.”

I wonder if MS follows suit if they'll disclose those energy efficiency numbers...

lol, see what you did there.

All of this is pretty minuscule until countries such as China are dealt with.

Srhalo26d ago

Actually, China has very strong energy efficacy policy. They have the most advanced renewable energy technology in place in the world.

And to be fair China has aggressively worked to cut their carbon footprint while certain other countries leaders work against renewable energy by cutting funding for research and projects and cutting regulations.

Why is PlayStation becoming so political? It trickles to their studios, Naughty Dog has become the same. Can't I just play the games I wanna play?

SamPao27d ago

dude, THE WHOLE WORLD is political, YOUR LIFECHOICES are political. Stop pretendint things can live in a political vacuum.

Yeah with the rising population of earth which leads to more power consumption, it’s not a bad feature bro. What ever your believes are in politics, I feel like everyone can agree they want the earth to be healthier.

You are making it political snowflake

Wanting to help the planet is political now? You have some pretty dumb logic going on there. You should probably try reading the article and seeing why this is a GOOD thing.

So don’t ship PS5 overseas, stop wasting the planets resources on hobbies. No games, cars, burgers or children. Just sit with a preowned book and eat your veggie burger while you contemplate why you are alive.
