Study Suggests Nintendo Switch Is The Most Eco-Friendly Console On The Market


Nintendo Switch© Nintendo

If you’re in the market for a new games console that won’t cost the Earth to run, it would appear that a shiny new Nintendo Switch could just be your best bet

According to a new survey by NerdWallet, the Switch has been declared the most eco-friendly system of the current generation of consoles. According to the study’s data, which was collected between 2nd December 2020 and 4th January 2021 using a variety of tools and websites, the Nintendo Switch will cost the average user £101.43 in energy bills throughout its lifetime, compared to £165.77 for the PS5, and £200.24 for the Xbox Series X|S.

You can see these lifetime energy figures, as well as those for slightly older consoles, in the full table below. For the purpose of the study, ‘lifetime’ is “defined as the expected time a person keeps and uses their console before upgrading to a new model… based on the assumption a person buys a new console roughly one year after a new model has been released.”

Playstation 3 Xbox 360 Nintendo Wii
£ 162.23 £ 182.60 £ 83.33
Playstation 4 Xbox One Nintendo Wii U
£ 206.92 £ 257.11 £ 28.75
Playstation 5 Xbox Series S/X Nintendo Switch
£ 165.77 £ 200.24 £ 101.43

The study also looked at how much a console would cost the average user throughout its lifetime, adding up factors like the console’s initial price, any online subscriptions, several games at the average retail price, and common accessories like a controller and headset. Nintendo’s consoles worked out cheapest across the board:

Rank (Most expensive to lowest)

Console Lifetime Cost
1 PlayStation 5 (Disc) £1717.91
2 Xbox Series X (Disc) £1645.51
3 PlayStation 5 (Digital) £1,627.91
4 Xbox One £1,493.48
5 Xbox Series S (Digital) £1,445.51
6 PlayStation 4 £1,374.51
7 PlayStation 3 £1,258.58
8 Xbox 360 £1,218.27
9 Nintendo Switch £880.05
10 Nintendo Wii U £720.37
11 Nintendo Wii £646.24

Do you take a console’s energy cost into account when choosing a new model? Have you ever thought about how much a system and all of the games you’ve purchased might cost you in the long run?

We dread to think how much we’ve collectively spent on new games over the years…
