A PS3 consumes 500% more power than a medium-sized fridge

Hilarious. According to this Intology report, running a PS3 for a year costs five times as much as running an average-sized fridge.

Australian consumer group Choice found that a 12 cu. ft. volume fridge costs $50 to run for a year, while a PS3 costs $250 per year even if it's just switched on and not used.

The sound you're hearing is the roar of the world's oil and coal reserves evaporating in God's holy fire.
