“With some differences in the amount of hazardous chemicals and materials, all three manufacturers failed the green electronics test set by Greenpeace. In the Nintendo Wii, beryllium alloys were not identified in electrical contacts, and the use of PVC and phthalates was found to be limited. At the same time, the PS3 included examples of “bromine – free” circuit boards, and the Xbox 360 had lower usage of brominated materials within housing materials. Our test clearly shows that a greener game console is possible; manufacturers just need to look ‘inside the box’ of the competition to see which of their own dirty components can be replaced with toxic free materials.” – Greenpeace international toxics campaigner Casey Harrell
