Of all the 360 SKUs, the Elite is supposed to be the quietest (is that even a word?), most energy efficent version. You’d think that it would compare favourably with the PS3 when it came to energy consumption.
Well, no not really. The PS3, Xbox360 Elite and Wii had their energy usage levels measured and the results were as follows.
In order of most energy efficient to least:
- 1. Wii – 17 watts
- 2. PS3 – 171 watts
- 2. 360 Elite – 194 watts
Sheesh, I almost thought that the Wii actually generated power for a minute there. 😀
