Nintendo Named Least Green Console Manufacturer
Posted on Wednesday, October 27 @ 11:17:51 Eastern by Anthony SeverinoIf being friendly to the environment is at the top of your list, you might want to avoid Nintendo.
According to the latest Greenpeace findings in their annual "Guide to Greener Electronics", Nintendo is ranked the lowest out of all electronics manufacturers, listed at a globe-warming 1.8 out of 10. Sadly, Nintendo scored the exact same score during the previous year, showing that the company has put forth little effort into going green.
Microsoft is not far behind, scoring a 2.9, with Greenpeace noting that the new, slimmer Xbox 360 S model reduces energy consumption 50% from the original Xbox 360 model.
Apple and Sony were practically neck-and-neck, receiving a 4.9 and 5.1 respectively, giving Sony the slight edge.
Although completely unrelated to videogames (thank god the N-Gage never took off), Nokia tops the list at an exceptionally green rating of 7.5.
