"Another day, another comparison between Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 in which Nintendo Wii comes out on top. This time, it's the all-important field of energy efficiency. The website hardCOREware.net did an in-depth comparison between the energy usage of all three consoles, along with a standard PC. Power consumption during gameplay was determined using NBA Live 2K7 for PS3, Gears of War for XBOX 360, The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii and lastly, PREY was used for PC. Wii took a mere 18 Watts average, while PC's average was 198 Watts, Xbox 360 averaged 185 Watts, and PC averaged almost 194 Watts. What could possibly go nicer with a Toyota Prius than a Nintendo Wii, we ask you?" @ http://www.nintendorevolution.ca/02232007/22/nintendo_wii_beats_xbox_360_and_ps3_in_energy_efficiency_too Cheaper initially, cheaper in the long run.
