    Let's compare the cost of gaming to my favorite pastime, getting drunk. I wonder which costs more, a 12 hour gaming sesh, or a 12 hour bender down the pub. I wonder?

    lol, whatever power consumption the PS4 uses is a pittance compared to what really makes my bill sky-rocket ... my HVAC system. Even if the PS4 makes my bill $10 higher a month, that's a drop in the bucket. moving on ...

    As do I. But I would not get a console for just 1 game. Would have to be several coming out for it before I consider it.

    Edit: I am 26

    Well, that's because you're a kid.

    Seriously, gamers are so judgemental sometimes..

    On topic: I agree with KID. Read a book if you think the cost is too much. There are more expensive hobbies out there and you can make any hobby as expensive as you want.

    This is true. My mum hates me playing games and thinks they are stupid (even though when I was playing Darksiders 2 and fighting The Guardian she kept telling me to "Hit it in the head" and when I finally managed to get the final blow on it she said "Did that work?") she would rather me play games because I could be out doing drugs or be an alcoholic and they are more expensive then gaming. Though I am slowly getting into Warhammer 40,000 and that is really expensive.

    Still uses less power than my HAVC system, water well, or the fact that there are 6 tv's in my house all hooked up to Directv and at some point during the day at least one of those bastards is on in a room with the lights on and nobody in it. Not including two desktops that I believe have never been turned completely off since we bought them. Having teens and a pre-teen is what kills my electric bill, not a gaming console.

    Oooh watch out guys we got some macho CoD player over here. I honestly doubt the Nintendo Wii is "garbage" as it's the best selling console of all time, and I think quite a lot of people do give a shit about Donkey Kong. Also, it's Pokémon, and the plural of Lego is Lego, not 'legos'. Your welcome, mister I'm-Too-Macho-For-Pokémon.

    Meanwhile Ps360 is on a gaming Pc with a power supply that's twice the size of consoles

    funny, I play video games everyday after work and on the weekends, our electric bill is 60 to 70 bucks between 3 people. The only time our bill is in the 90's is when were using heat.

    Is this statistic for gamers who leave it on 24/7

    Only the Wii-U has a dramatic change in power use, the Ps4 and Xbox one are very close

I'll never know for sure until I try it, but I'm not buying a Wii U just to try a game or two that I may end up not liking. I'd rather wait for games I'm interested in to come out (say, a new Metroid, Zelda and F-Zero) and for it to come free with a six-pack and then I'll consider giving the game a try. Until then, it's nothing worth considering buying a Wii U for.

    What BS is this, Ofcourse it's going to use more power on standby if you have power constantly going to the USB slots, and with kinect you can just turn it off?

    My Xbox runs for about 6 hours a day, about 9 for PS3, and Xbox One is for about 7 hours. Electric bill has not gone up.
