PS3 Greener than the 360 Elite

39 second read

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. 😀

  • Dammit. My 360’s the least green of the bunch. All the more reason to install those solar panels to run my entertainment rig.

  • The Panasonic TH-58PZ700U HDTV is very energy efficient, only 0.3 watts on standby !
