I know this may seem like a pre-mature question to ask, since we haven't had an in-depth (or any) experience with the new consoles, but here is the question anyways. I have become kind of a massive power saver on my energy bills and so on. I have gaming consoles, but I stream from my Apple TV. I will be getting the PS4 and the Xbox One and since these devices are going to be plugged into my TV for the next several years, would it actually save me more money to just stream video on services from those consoles and unplug unneeded devices (like my Apple TV) or would it be better to just stream from my Apple TV, since it is only a 2watt power supply inside (even though the device is actually, technically, always on). If the Xbox One and PS4 are about the same as their previous systems in the line in this category, what would you expect the cheapest route would be?
Also, I've always went with the idea of using a streaming device instead of my consoles for video because that will save on hours used on the consoles and thus extend the life of the console. Is that a miss-lead philosophy or not?
