    Greenpeace gives Sony the highest rating of the console makers, whereas Nintendo manages to break records with its poor performance.
    By Emma Boyes, GameSpot UK

    The results of the latest Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics are in, and as far as the green console wars go, Sony comes out on top.

    Sony is praised for improved recycling and takeback, especially in the US, and more products free of toxic PVC as compared to last year. All these factors add up to give the Japanese giant a score of 7.3 out of 10.

    Microsoft didn't fare as well, given that the Xbox 360 manufacturer has a long timeline for toxic-chemical elimination, as well as poor takeback policy and practice. Bill Gates' company scored only 2.7 out of 10.

    However, Microsoft was positively lauded in comparison to Nintendo. The Mario factory found itself in last place not just among console makers but out of all of the electronics companies on the chart. Nintendo managed to score 0 out of 10, which, according to Greenpeace, makes them the first-ever global brand to score nothing across all criteria. However, as Greenpeace kindly put it, this allows "infinite room for future improvement."

    The companies were rated on nine different categories, and given a rating of bad, partially bad, partially good, and good, with points allocated for each score. The categories were chemicals management, timeline for the precautionary principle (a chemicals policy), PVC phaseout, timeline for BFR phaseout, PVC-free and/or BFR-free models, individual producer responsibility, voluntary takeback, information to individual customers, and amounts recycled

    It's true though. Japan's fishing companies have worked their way through legal loopholes to allow the killing of endangered whales. That's why everyone should boycott everything except the 360.

    If you don't care about the environment, just think about The Rape of Nanking. The Japanese have committed so many war-crimes they practically deserve to be Geneva Conventioned several times over.

    Haha...all you 360/PS3 owners are the favorite of Greenpeace!

    And yes, that is an insult. Wii is the MAN's system. We don't give a **** about the environment. :o

    That should be the new slogan - Wii don't give a **** about the environment.

    Seriously, the Wii's still outselling the PS3 and 360 by a ton, isn't it?

    Yeah, which is good news for anyone who wants to live in an irradiated wasteland. The Wii is killing the Earth.
