PlayStation 5 Is The Most Power-Hungry Among Consoles

Many consoles are not exactly economical in terms of power consumption. Like the graphic based on a study by colleagues from Eurogamer shows, the next-gen consoles in particular are real power guzzlers. Above all, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) – consumes around 219-kilowatt hours of electricity when operated for three hours a day.

The Xbox Series X achieves around 197-kilowatt hours with the same length of use. This is not surprising, since the new consoles also have the greatest computing power. Projected over the year, gaming on the PS5 causes electricity costs of around 92 euros at an underlying average price of 42 cents per kilowatt hour. For Series X, the costs are estimated at 82.80 euros.

The Nintendo Switch, on the other hand, is particularly energy-efficient. The hybrid console consumes only about eight-kilowatt hours per year in stationary mode. Nintendo’s flagship OLED upgrade is even more economical. Switch gamers, therefore, pay around two to three euros a year for the electricity consumption of their hobby.
