XBOX360, Wii, PS3 Power Consumption
2007-02-22 03:11:33Quite a few numbers stand out from these results. First of all, look at Wii! 18 Watts average when playing what is considered the console's prettiest game! Compare that to the PC, which hovers around 198 Watts steady, peaking around 209 Watts.
While the PS3 had a lower minimum (probably due to the loading screen in between quarters in the basketball game), its average was about 13W higher than the XBOX 360 playing its most advanced game, Gears of War. GoW truly squeezes every little bit that the 360 has to give, and this is probably as much power any game today will require from it.
Ill guess to save electric Wii is the way to go !
