    Nintendo not GREEN!!

    It seems that Nintendo has been rated dead last on the “Green” list of electronics makers by Greenpeace for simply failing to provide ample information about its recycling methods as well as its use of PVC.

    Switched brings up a good point calling out Greenpeace that the Wii doesn’t use nearly the amount of power of it’s competitor Sony’s Playstation 3 or even Microsoft’s XBox 360.

    We here at Switched find this ordering somewhat confusing. Sony’s console, the PlayStation 3, is by far the most power hungry of the three, drawing 200-plus watts of electricity when playing games. Microsoft’s Xbox 360 averages a somewhat more efficient 145 watts, while Nintendo’s Wii uses just 15-20 watts, which is less than 10-percent of the power of Sony’s machine! Yet Nintendo is ranked as the worst electronics maker on the planet? We think Greenpeace should care a little more about the pollution caused by power generation.

    Given my limited knowledge about Greenpeace’s evaluation system, I’m going to have to agree with Switched. It seems a little harsh to let the gray area around Nintendo’s recycling habits push them to the very bottom when the PVC issue is present with other companies as well.




    it sounds to me like maybe someone paid Greenpeace because maybe they are a little jealous of the wii's great selling ability...just a thought

    THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF...

    I am totally with Blume on this... I don't think Nintendo should be persecuted for not providing enough information. Not only should they not judge Nintendo solely on their ability to recycle and lessen harmful products,they should also be counting how power consumption effects the enviroment... B*stards

    I just don't feel that Greenpeace should be putting down a company without actually finding the real facts.
