    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.

    Greenpeace has no power and barely any public influence... its just a bunch of hippies that dont want to get real jobs.... i know ive hung out with them cool people just some really wacko...

    why would nintendo care what an organization thinks that has no infuence in if they can or cannot make the machines? if it was from OSHA or Enviromental Control office that had some importance at all then maybe it would matter...

    Greenpeace is just so up everyones butt they dont even pay attention anymore if they are right or not.
    they just blame everyone for everything and hope it helps fix the problem...lol

    They are the nats of the corporate world, nintendo has better things to do then jump through hoops and provide them with every bit of info they ask for...
    Accussing because of lack of proof is just stupid and lazy... sure maybe they dont deserve a gold star for not giving the info but to blacklist them for not giving info, and having no proof at all of wrong doing just saying its so because your not sure...

    Thats why i threw out my Hemp jeans i knew they were making me to parinoid... ha ha

    Meh, I wonder how much energy they used conducting this "research" and publishing it?

    Besides, it's not like people are planning to get rid of their Nintendo products anytime soon, tells you a lot about the competition ;)

    Agreed, who cares if some low-life company decides to hate nintendo, let them and enjoy our Wii's anyways.

    the wii actually uses less power than the gamecube. that was one of the stipulations nintendo put on it when they began to design it.

    Well, talking about Greenpeace, it's a profit-oriented company, not an organization of resposible citizens.
    As a paying supporter, you can't even affect what they will protest against.

    But that is just what they themselves tell of their organization, not my oppinion.

    Otherwise, I couldn't care less for their "lists of green" or what-the-frak-they-publish.
