  • The newest consoles gobble more energy in standby mode and when showing videos than playing games, over a year.
  • Almost half of the Xbox One’s annual energy consumption occurs when no one is using it, but it’s listening for users to say “Xbox on” even in the middle of the night or when no one’s home.
  • If all U.S. Xbox One owners use their consoles for TV watching, it would add $300 million to their yearly energy bills.
  • The PS4 and Xbox One use 30 to 45 times more power to stream a movie than dedicated media players (such as Apple TV or Google Chromecast).
