Next-gen console prove to be totally electricity-hungry
A new study has been published showing that the new crop of home consoles are sucking up a huge amount of electricity compared to the previous generation of machines.
The Natural Resources Defense Council in the US has found that the PS4 and Xbox One consume between three and four times the electricity that the PS3 and Xbox 360 do.
The PS4 is not that much better consuming around 181 Kwh per year as opposed to the PS3 which manages a respectable 64 Kwh per year.
The Wii U manages to come out on top by actually besting even the Wii's power consumption. It uses up a measly 37 Kwh per year which beats the Wii's 40 Kwh per year.
