Has your electricity bill shocked you since you bought the PS4?
Gaming consoles have been in the market, but since the COVID-19 lockdown, they have become a popular household source of entertainment. They allow people not only to play games online but also watch movies and even stream.
However, most people don’t realize that these game consoles, especially PS4, drain electricity even when they are in their standard mode, supposedly saving energy. So let’s see how safe you are or not with your PS4.
How Much Power Does a PS4 Use?
If you are playing PS4 on a standard LED TV, you will use about 200 Watts that is 140 Watt for the PS4 and 60 Watt for the TV per hour. During the two hours operation period, you will consume 400 Watt, which will cost you 5 cents per hour.
