[Infographic] by Jeff McIntire-Strasburg July 2, 2012, 12:24 pm We tend to focus on cell phones and computers when we talk about e-waste, but, of course, video game consoles, and the games themselves, also use materials that, more often than not, end up in landfills. What’s the overall impact of all of those games? Take a look at the infographic below to get an idea. Keep in mind, of course, that creator Big Fish Games has a dog in this hunt, so to speak: they sell downloadable games. Regardless, they make a good argument: why put all of that material into a packaged product that could be downloaded? Gamers, speak up: give any thought to the environmental impact of your hobby? Would you prefer a download option for your games?
