PlayStation 5⃣ Will Use Less Power⚡ Than PS4 in Rest Mode

  |   Games

As the current console generation of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One comes to a close, there's no doubt that many are looking forward to what the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Project Scarlett can do. The main concern for many gamers may be available games, power output, graphical enhancements, and more, but it seems that president and CEO of SIE Jim Ryan has one more area of concern for the next-gen console: being environmentally friendly.

Ryan announced that he will join other leaders in the gaming industry at the UN Climate Summit to establish a new partnership, the Playing for the Planet alliance, and to commit to the efforts of the UN Environment committee. Ryan also pledged the company to preservation of natural resources and that the PS5 company's beliefs fall in line with the mission and objectives of the UN Environment, and that this partnership will help reach sustainable development goals.

As part of this, he also revealed that the PlayStation 5 will have a much lower power consumption rate than the PS4, using an estimated 0.5 watts in the process. With 1 million gamers using this feature, that'll save roughly the average electricity use of 1,000 US homes. That doesn't mean SIE's contributions begin with the PS5, though, as Ryan talked about reducing the power consumption of the PS4 as well.
