It took a few weeks, but Nintendo has made a public statement regarding their recent dead last ranking in Greenpeace's "Guide to Greener Electronics." Not surprisingly, the company is quick to defend their environmental standards. "Nintendo takes great care to comply with all relevant regulations on avoiding the use of dangerous materials, recycling of materials etc.," the statement reads, in part. "For example, all Nintendo products supplied worldwide are designed to comply with relevant global standards."

We're kind of surprised that Nintendo didn't break out the big guns and cite the company's detailed recycling policies or the Wii's relatively low power consumption. Then again, given Greenpeace's targeting of the game industry and history of violence, maybe Nintendo just doesn't want to antagonize the environmental group further. Hey, Greenpeace, look over there! Oil spill!
