    Wii Power Consumption vs others

    Hey everybody,
    I'm not sure who all has read this article but I think it's a great read:
    http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-356-1.htm

    It says, basically, that the wii uses 'a lot' less power than PS3, XBOX360, or PC. It also uses 5X as much power when wiiconnect24 is turned on as opposed to when you have it in true 'off mode'. (I made that term up but I think you understand).

    I've had my wiiconnect24 off for a month now and don't regret it, it's a feature that simply isn't worth the dollar a month worth of power... I really couldn't believe that the wii peaked around 18watts while the other 3 were all peaking around 200watts. I mean the graphics of the other three are better, but not 10X better!

    Haha no problem

    I know I heard about the wiiconnect24 somewhere else but I hadn't read the other stuff anywhere else, but I'm sure it existed already.
