What a strange measure of a console's quality, power efficiency? You do realize that a PS2 leaks 17,5 kWh per year when it is in standby? The Xbox leaks 3,50kWh, also please take into consideration that the Xbox has a built in harddrive, while the PS2 doesn't, so it isn't really a fair comparison..Well, as I stated, it's a computer in a box.
I don't like it. Efficiency and power comes before "it's working."
Computers draws lots of power and are inefficient. That's why I dislike the whole computer in a box ordeal.
Also, when both consoles are turned on and gaming, a PS3 uses about 13W more than an Xbox 360, so i still don't get your point?
