We’re not sure exactly how the math on this works, but according to an Australian consumer group, called Choice, the Playstation 3 consumes more electricity than a medium-sized fridge. Not just a little more, but five times more, and that’s just plugged in with no gameplay.

Plasma TVs are also hardcore energy vampires, sucking down four times more energy than standard TVs.

Not all electronics are this bad, with the Wii by Nintendo taking up less than 10% of that which the PS3 uses.

Oddly, LCD monitors are better than CRT monitors for your computer, especially if they have a standby mode. The moral is to look for that Energy Star logo, it could end up saving you money and being better for your karma, man.
