Apparently! According to this site:
the PS3 uses between 185 and 205 watts when displaying its dashboard or
playing a game. That's more than my backend server.

I'm glad most of my shows are SD, so I can watch nearly anything on either
my beefy BE or my 3 watt MediaMVP running MVPMC as an alternative Myth FE!
