I was reading an interesting article in the evening paper yesterday about the power consumption of gaming consoles. Apparently a PlayStation 3 (PS3), if left in standby mode all year, will use more power than an average household fridge. That is quite scary stuff really considering IT firms are meant to be getting greener. Hopefully people will remember to switch them off at the mains after use. Having recently become the lucky owner of a Nintendo Wii - I have to say I am disappointed at the lack of an on/off button on the actual console - it is in permanent standby mode, which is very awkward for me becasue the TV is on a heavy cabinet and I have to move it every time I want to turn the Wii on or off. At least the PS2 and Xbox consoles that I also own can be switched on or off at the unit. Come on Nintendo, think of the environment a little more.
