ive got to fats.. need to go on a diet lol
So far I've enjoyed my Slim since November and have to say it was a great purchase. Still, my electricity bill doubled because of all the energy the PS3 takes so buyer beware.
Interesting question. It appears that the PS3 fat is a helluva energy hog. The Wii uses way, way less power than both the 360 and PS3… but it's SD and not HD, of course. http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-356-1.htm
However, the Slims use less than 50% of the power that the Fats eat up: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10318727-1.html And I read recently that the latest slim model to hit Japan is still more energy efficient: http://www.justpushstart.com/2010/07/30/new-ps3-mo…..riendly/ I don't know whether this model being sold in other regions yet.
The Wii not being HD still doesn't justify all the energy the 360 and PS3 consume. It's just crazy. At first I figured my electricity bill was wrong and that I might have been overcharged due to a mistake but nooooo. The extra money could have bougt 4 new games by now!
I'm really torn about this. I bought the ps3 when it was backwards compatible but it doesn't like playing blu rays most the time,
