It's hardly news
that the Wii uses up less power than Sony
's graphically intensive, monolithic consoles, but Aussie consumer website Choice has now delivered the most detailed results yet on how much juice each machine consumes -- even taking into account factors such as whether or not WiiConnect24
is active, or whether the console in question is idle.
And there's no doubt about it -- despite what Greenpeace might say
, the Wii is an efficient little bugger when it comes to energy consumption. Ninty's console uses under one-tenth
of the power required to play games on a PS3, and an eighth of the energy needed to run games on an Xbox 360. Regrettably, the survey neglects to mention that the Wii is three times as fun as both. YES, WE TOTALLY WENT THERE
