Today’s Solutions: December 06, 2023

In the world of video gaming, companies like Sony and Microsoft have the ability to engage and captivate millions of people around the world with their consoles.

Now, the two companies may inspire their players to be more climate-conscious as they have recently pledged to make their future video game consoles more planet-friendly. The Xbox and PlayStation manufacturers laid out their plans alongside the UN Climate Summit as part of the Playing for the Planet Alliance – a joint effort among the console manufacturers, publishers and developers to make the video game industry more sustainable.

Microsoft will start a pilot program to create 825,000 carbon-neutral Xbox consoles, which will be the first ones to achieve that goal.

Meanwhile, Sony will focus on its upcoming PlayStation 5’s energy consumption by improving its low-power mode. The Japanese company said if 1 million users make use of the feature, it will save the equivalent of the average electricity use of 1,000 US homes.
