Sony has announced that they’re partnering with the United Nations to combat climate change in their recent blog post. The alliance is called “Playing for the Planet,” focusing on the gaming industry contributing toward a safer environment. The company had already focused on energy efficient methods while developing the PS4. However, Sony also promises lower power consumption as a whole for the PS5 especially in rest mode. Here’s the excerpt from the recent blog post:
I am also very pleased to announce the next generation PlayStation console will include the possibility to suspend gameplay with much lower power consumption than PS4 (which we estimate can be achieved at around 0.5 W). If just one million users enable this feature, it would save equivalent to the average electricity use of 1,000 US homes.
