Woke Microsoft is literally bragging about forcing Xbox gamers to power down their devices. All in the name of protecting the environment.
As the company assured its user base in a press release earlier this month:
TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/
Xbox is working to reduce our environmental impact to help us reach Microsoft’s goal of being a carbon negative, water positive, and zero waste company by 2030 by rethinking how we design, build, distribute, and use our products…
…Starting today, Xbox Insiders will notice that their Xbox Series X|S consoles automatically update to the Shutdown (energy saving) power option. This one-time update to your power settings will reduce your power consumption while your console is off, and will not affect performance, gameplay, or your console’s ability to receive overnight updates to system, games or apps.
Remote features are supported while the console is powered-on; however, remote wake is not supported while the console is shut down. You can adjust your settings at any time, choosing what works best for you. Shutdown (energy saving) cuts power use by up to 20X when it’s off compared to Sleep.
First gas stoves, then your coffee, now they're gunning for your Xbox. https://t.co/MpaH2ntWAz

This story has been circulating the internet this week because it comes at an eerie time when companies like Microsoft are taking pride in their ability to force certain behaviors under the guise of a woke cause like climate change.
