PS3 Slim expends half the energy of the PS3 Fat


What would it be like to have a real testing lab instead of working in the makeshift “lab” that is John’s attic? A blogger can dream. Or we can take a look at an outfit like Cnet.

The boys over at CBS tested the new PS3 Slim against the PS3 Fat using an array of power consumption tests. The verdict? The Slim uses less than half the power of the old 60GB PS3, which we all know is about as power hungry as a plasma TV.


The numbers really speak for themselves. The Slim even runs more efficiently than the current gen Xbox 360s, says Cnet. The 360 uses around 187 watts while playing a game whereas the Slim only uses 96.24 watts. Not too shabby, Sony.
