    There's no noticeable difference in my electric bill since November, other than the usual winter and summer increases.

    The site says it costs like about $3 a month or year to run. Hardly noticable, but still pretty interesting stuff.

    If I’m going to be using a next gen system to play Uno I want to be burning as much fossil fuel as possible.

    My bills have been pretty much on par since I bought my 360 as well.

    Oh, so the 1 other one console released between now and then won't be more energy draining?...:rolleyes2

    Acording to them, this is the wasted energy each system exerts in standby mode:

    Console | Energy Leakage | kWh Wasted Each Year | Annual Cost
    * Playstation 1 | 0.1W | 1.752 kWh | $0.26
    * Playstation 2 | 2W | 17.52 kWh | $2.63
    * Xbox | 0.2W | 3.50 kWh | $0.53
    * Xbox 360 | 2W | 17.52 kWh | $2.63
    * Gamecube | 0.2W | 3.50 kWh | $0.53
    * Dreamcast | 0.2W | 3.50 kWh | $0.53

    Good. This frickin' global warming thing is taking too damn long for my tastes. Looks like I'm gonna have to support the 360 if I want to see the statue of liberty knee deep in saline before I die.

    Well I guess I'm doing my part to bring ruin upon the Earth.

    I...I once left my 360 on for like three hours. Forgive me, rain forest.

    If that is all it costs, compare that with replacing batteries in the old gameboys, gamegear, and what not. Sure makes rechargeable batteries a steal.

    You know, a thought just occured to me. My toaster pulls more power than that, I wonder if that means that it's "scientifically" more powerful than the 360?
