According to Microsoft's Albert Penello, fans in Xbox One are dead silent, Quieter than the one in new Xbox 360 Slim.
it's dead quiet according to him. Nice job MS
It has a huge fan that spins slower allowing it to be ultra quiet. A small fan spinning at really high speeds causes a much louder noise. This was actually discussed like 2 months ago. On top of that all games are fully installed to the HDD on the X1 so it spins disc a lot less often as well so less sound from that too. When it was first discussed everyone was surprised with how quiet it was.
anything xb1 ps4 can do better
Now, if only Don Mattrick could have been as quiet... lol ;)
Ign i think it was said its really quite to
24 hours after purchasing the xbox one lol. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
just so you know. it's spelt quiet rather than quite. It still catches me out occasionally as they're obviously similar it was a quiet time it's quite good
Zuperman. There's a fix for that... Install the game. And no, the X1 won't sound like that because it uses a much slower bluray drive.
How is that even possible =O. My slim doesn't make any sound at all...only if the disc is in but I install all the games.
I would hope so with the bigger heat-sink fan.. Does anybody know if you can change the Heat-sink fan for others?
You most likely would be able to just as long as it has the same voltage requirement as the original. They can detect if your console is using more power than it should be over LIVE and ban the console.
100% agree with signifiedSix91. I changed the fans on my original launch Xbox 36o, and added a temp monitor to it (admittedly sad I had to) but I knew of an incoming update from an article that said MS will be able to detect hardware modded consoles by by the voltage. So it was removed. Oddly I also read how at Xbox live HQ, ms has modded consoles on display. Some with not just cosmetic mods but hardware. To cool my Xbox 36o I took the electromagentic shroud off which is required by the FCC for consumer sold devices like consoles and PCs. My launch 36o lasted till the slim Came out. I played it virtually everyday and plenty of times from sun down to sun up. It eventually red ringed.
When the games install fully to the hard drive, how can it not be quiet?
My original Xbox 360 from launch sounds like my neighbours are mowing their lawn... but behind my tv. It's impossible to watch a movie without having headphones on because the noise is ridiculous!
It's something about knowing a device is uber powerful without the noise.
What does the PS4 have to do with this?
That'd be funny if there was any info on the PS4's noise factor. I won't get into the power debate though..games do the talking.
Relax I'm just joking lol
I knew that..I have dry humor. Hard to get across on teh interwebz
Maybe you should wet it down a little then...?
Good good my old one used to sound like a jumbo jet
I'm not really surprised as it has a BD-ROM, the DVD-ROM was the loudest part of 360 by far.
Oldskool dvd players are quite loud
I hear the ps4 has no sound
I even heard it has no physical body.
consoles dont have bodies. there plastic
I heard the PS4 has negative sound,, its absorbs the sound in the room.
I heard the eyetoy was blind.
I heard it has no launch line-up jk
LMFAO!!! Good one! Seriously For now it doesnt. But im hoping that the Ps4's launch line up grows by the end of gamescom.
"Blindly in love", Micro Fantards.
i heard xbone will have the announced exclusive games spread throughout its lifespan. because that's all the games they will have. 15 plus sprinkle with multiplats
I heard it does not even come with a box.
That good especially when playing at night you don't want the whole family to hear that you are playing xbox
Does watching porn through HDMI-in count as "playing xbox"? Definitely don't want to get caught doing that...
@devwan don't worry you can disconnect the kinect now, just don't accidentally recored and upload everything you do.
What? People are actually suprised by this? It's SUPPOSE to be quieter ffs.
Agreed. I would be pissed if the next gen units were loud. Plus you would think that MS would have to make sure the thing doesn't overheat like crazy and cost them almost 2 billion dollars again.
That's good to hear, but we really don't know until release day and gamers' have subjected both the XBox ONE and PS4 to rigorous long game times in average temperatures. ( No use of air-conditioning units in their rooms or gamers who usually live in cold wintry weather. )
Cool and i hope that the PS4 is quiet as well.
Im pretty sure it will be.
How can it be quieter than my Xbox 360 slim. I bought a white 250GB special edition Xbox 360 slim a few weeks ago and there is no noise from it at all. Even when gaming its dead silent. It cant get any quieter and I am obsessed with the noise my computer and consoles make. I bought a Fractal R4 two months ago so that I could have a quiet computer.
Have you tried switching it on and using it? :) OT: The reason it's super-quiet is it has to be as it's supposed to be an integral part of your living room setup... nothing worse than having a film ruined from the whir of a dodgy player.
Are you serious? I have a slim too and it makes COMPLETLY no sound when gaming. The only sound it can make is when you play from the disc, and I don't do that, everything is installed. You are or trolling or never owned a new slim.
@BallsEye "You are or trolling or never owned a new slim." ...or maybe I made a small joke, hence the smiley? Someone needs a tall cool glass of chillax. xoxox
Typical N4G. I get disagrees for telling the truth as usual. If I lied I am sure those eight people wouldn't have disagreed
No one should expect anything different with such a bulky console.
no one should expect anything different from such a lifeless troll
WTF??? The Xbox One is quite large for a console. That large size allows for a better cooling system which, if done well, should reduce the noise that comes from cooling it. No trolling at all in my comment, so you can stop with the ignorant personal attacks.
Anything's better than my phat 2005 360.
haha init, i was playing black ops 2 on one yesterday and i had to keep turning the tv up coz the thing was so damn noisy but it has been with us for a few good years now, still its sounds like its eating the discs lol
I played my fat 360 with headphones because the DVD drive and the fan made a ton of noise. I never had a slim but people say that its a lot quieter than the fat. Anyways i own a PS3 slim and its pretty quiet for the most part but it would be great if the PS4 was quieter than it.
Not surprised as the console is designed to compliment your sat box and audio equipment. Also have you seen the size of the internal fan - its big I estimate 100mm. Larger fan can shift just as much or more air with lower rpm = less noise. The 360 S model is very quiet anyway. I've only managed to get it to noticeably whirr a few times and that was mainly the disc drive. My xenon 360 sounds like a jet engine when it gets going. I kind of like it in an old skool kind of way as its a bit of barn door engineering and sounds powerful. You def know when your caining it and it keeps your room warm in the winter :)
I just hope they didn't go for quietness over adequate cooling..
When my ps3 is on and i put it off, i feel like the storm just end!
LOL. That was a funny way of putting it. Same when I turn off my 360 with the DVD. The whole room seems so different. Like the storm just ended. Very good analogy.
just to be clear, they are the ones' that said that drm is the future right?
They're are right, in the future everything will be connected always online, it is inevitable but unfortunately for MS it is too soon, we're not ready to make the push just yet.
yeah i dont deny that but not in the way they implemented it,even now u cant share a digital game in ps3/x360 but drm has no place in disk based games
For my home sound system I prefer a quite console than a small one.
