PS4 And Xbox One Consumers Shed Out More Money For Electricity Than Others

According to a survey by the National Resources Deference Council (NRDC) on the power consumption of consoles, Nintendo’s Wii U performed better than PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both PS4 and Xbox One showed double the energy consumption compared to their previous versions, PS3 and Xbox 360 respectively.

The report also tabulated that in standby mode, 40% of electricity ($400 million worth) is wasted by PS4, Wii U and Xbox One, meaning more electricity bills and power wastage.

In the report, suggestions have also been provided for the users as well as the makers of these consoles on how to tackle up this problem with efficient techniques.
