Concerns over PS3 power consumption

Posted on Saturday, March 17 2007 @ 09:20:56 CET by

As the European launch of Sony's PlayStation 3 comes near, energy information site Sust-it warns for the high power consumption of this console:
The site warns that the US version of the PlayStation 3 comes with a sizeable 380W power supply, which is over twice as big as its main competitor, Microsoft's Xbox 360 at 165W, and over seven times more power hungry than the PlayStation 2.

If a user combines a PS3 with a sizeable plasma display to take full advantage of the graphics capabilities of the machine, users could be burning 1.4kWh of power per hour costing up to £1.19 for a five-hour session.

Ross Lammas, from Sust-it, said: "We expect new car launches to announce more performance with less fuel consumption, so it's a pity that this does not apply to electronic goods. Is it not time for an energy efficiency rating system for consumer electrical goods?"
