I guess you answered your own concerns.
HAHA, I am glad you added that line, because yes...my post was certainly just an FYI to those curious as to the benefits they would be getting out of this. I was looking into the numbers and wanted to post them for others curious.
I knew the one was 1st gen consoles (and said that) and used the second article to point out the consoles were basically tied with the latest 360S (PS3 had maybe a $0.75 savings per year, haha) so this will put them back into a secure 2nd place, but still about 1/5th of the way to Nintendo's numbers.
basically PS3 = Jason Day for those that watched the US Open.
but, none of the manufactures actually post consumption numbers so we would have to wait till someone got their hands on it to get those.
