Default video games consoles

We are finally going to break down and get a gaming console for our son. Opinions on which one? Ps4 or Xbox one? I see ps4 has double the sales of x.

What are your requirements? Are you going based only on power consumption, availible titles, something else? How old is your son? If he is young, the Wii has subtantially low power needs. I recently purchased the newest sub-model of PS3 slim which has seen a considerable reduction in power use over earlier sub-models.

I believe the Xbone has the highest use of power.

Just buy/build a PC. The latest game consoles are just overpriced PCs anyways.

To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...
