    well duh! the wii-u is a newer console... any tech, in this case the 360 and ps3, that's older than the wii u will of course be less efficient.... there is about a 10 year gap in tech.... it's like comparing the nes or Snes to a xbox.... the separation in gens isn't just limited to graphics people..... >.< stop comparing wii u to the previous generation!!!! wait and see what micro$hit and Playcrap come up with

    I think smaller scrotum would be a better analogy

    It's the little victories that count I guess.

    ...Although last time I checked Nintendo is still rather high up on the list of companies that use conflict materials.

    Damn, here I thought greenpeace's semi annual roundup had actually got some data this time.

    @sanoblue the sentiment is appreciated but as far as the science goes it is was still potentially up in the air and the Wii U could still have been similar to the PS360 side of things easily enough.

    It eats up the least power of the three because it's the least used due to no gaems. ;O;
    /trololo

    Seriously though, no wonder - it's a more refined build of the same technology - all processors gradually become more energy-efficent, that's the current trend.

    How is this news? A less powerful technically inferior console uses less power than its ten year old counterparts. Stop the presses.

    There you go, the WiiU is now officially GreenPeace's favourite console.
