From digitmag.co.uk: [QUOTE] If you are waiting for your pre-ordered PlayStation 3 to arrive, it may be a good idea to consider topping-up the pre-payments on your UK electricity account says energy consumption compression Web site sust-it.net.
According to sust-it, Sony's PS3 comes bottom in a list of current games consoles' energy efficiency and costs to run in terms of electricity usage - in turn making it the least environmentally-friendly of onsoles. Compared to Nintendo's popular Wii console which costs £2.13 to run per year based on two hours usage per day, 365 days a year, Sony's PS3 racks up a whopping £47.69 based on the same usage. Costs are based on the manufacturers published energy consumption figures multiplyied by an average electricity unit tariff. [/QUOTE]
