Energy prices are skyrocketing, so you need to be a little more frugal if you don’t want to end up with an excessive electricity bill. Our Xbox could also help us in this regard and features that many of us have ignored so far because it was more convenient to have our favorite console always ready for action in standby mode. Immediate activation and pick up where he last left off. However, for this luxury, the machine consumed a stable 11-13 watts, which is not at all small. At least not at this time. For those who really want to save a lot, there is an option to use the power saving mode, which consumes only 0.5 watts, which is a relatively noticeable difference compared to the previous value.
At first glance, the Energy Saver model looks like an option that will take a lot of time from the game. The console doesn’t load right away, does it? Luckily for the budget conscious, Microsoft recently made significant improvements to system boot times, according to The Verge magazine. In the case of the Xbox Series X, up to five seconds, and even older models were not without this improvement. Although with Xbox Series X/S you will have to wait 15 seconds longer than usual, but in return, if you always turn it on, you will save a decent amount of money per month, which you can subscribe to Game Pass or Netflix, for example.
if you’re in the UK or Europe, it’s time to turn on Xbox Power Saving Mode. This can save you up to £5 a month as the cost of energy continues to rise (ht @alexhern). Details here: https://t.co/7cns4uSe8N pic.twitter.com/2wsq7grUfW

You can also save if you have a PlayStation console. The main thing, as in the case of the Xbox, is to see what mode they work in. However, none reaches such values as Instant on Xbox consoles, so by the time you’re worried about every watt, it’s not such a dire situation. Even the Nintendo Switch consumes only 7W in TV mode. When it comes to PC, of course, you can also focus on the economical way, but it’s difficult when playing, so in the end, we can pray that 1 kWh does not cost 25 crowns or more.
