All of the Sony PS3 gamers are going to love this video provided. There is one aspect of the Xbox 360 that no gamer can deny. The Xbox 360 is indeed a tad bit noisy.
like in wow u think this is news?
edit sad this got approved a lousy fake home vid on some nobodies blog aint freaking news.
Just more troll bait
More funny than you.
I did not watch the video, but anyone with a brain knows that the older 360s are louder. But then again, I can't hear EITHER console over my surround sound when gaming.
lmao it's a freakin joke dude! Don't get mad... laugh
lol, how can you hear the game sound ?
Before getting a PS3 (before they were available) - I borrowed a retail Xbox 360 and the best titles from work to try one out. (I had a ps2 and an xbox previous gen, and wanted to really try out both bits of kit.)
Whilst I was playing Gears, my g/f was reading over the otherside of the room. (and its a big front room for an average house in the uk) "Can you turn that down, its far too loud, I cannot read".
So turned the volume almost all the way down.
Few mins later "did you not hear me, can you turn that racket down!"
She was refering to the noise from the DVD drive.
Whilst I admit, some of the games on the 360 are very cool, the build quality of the hardware is disgusting. Corners cut all over, no hdmi, bluetooth, higher storage media or HDD as standard. Nasty MS only connectors for power, video, memory card. Loud, hot, and a kick back to the Amiga powerbrick that has a short cable so you cannot move it very far from the main unit. Awful.
that was fu(kin funny...
lol loool lmao lol dam i nearly cried that was a vaccum cleaner lol
we all know the PS3 is hushed compared to the older 360 models. With that new falcon thou i bet they are both the same as far as noise goes.
and anyone that said this isnt news must be new to this site. Blogs arent news but they seem to really be held to that standerd
you are wrong, sir.
keep telling it like it is brother bubbles
IMO this sites nothing but trolls now.
damm that thing is so effin loud.
yea that is a set up.
like how RROD start flashing right off the bat
I have told my buddy his 360 is dam loud but it isnt that loud
LMFAO...what it is...a game machine..??..F1 Car or and Ace combat Jet..??..
This video is probably even older than bloodmask. You lose all credibility, bloodmask.
it sounded just like a plane at the airport.
my xbox 360 isn't nearly that loud. Then again, I yet to experience what a 360 sounds like when its experiencing PROD. On to the next flame post!
and bye the way it makes NO NOISE when it has red lights.
the easiest way to get red ligts is to un plug the componet ,VGA,or HDMI cable.
anyway funny video.
that actually doesn't work on the Elite models.
LOL, though not surprising, my 360 is about the same in terms of noise.
Cause we now know he works for Microsoft? So he's trying to hide who he is.
in order to convince people that he doesn't. Well, at least the people who haven't found out this info.
"we now know he works for Microsoft"
"the people who haven't found out this info."
Did I miss something? Maybe thats why he gets so irritated when I call him a fanboy.
hahahahaha good one
AHAHHA, very nice!
Liked how the guy said 'don't hate' right in the end of the video...I think your not going to get lucky on that buddy :p xD
Lol, not too far off from how mine sounds when a game is running. Mine is a launch console though and I know they've gotten a lot quieter.
but allow me to suggest one thing.
You noticed how when the "scientist" on the video switched on the 360, the console instantly started flashing red lights? Unplug the component cords from your 360, and you will see 4 or 2 red lights when you turn on the machine.
Now, what sound does it make? (anybody else who owns a 360 should also try this "experiment").
that was pretty funny, but the grammar was horrendous
RROD, yes it is so funny.
read comment #14 & 19.1
I cant believe people are questioning it.
Maybethe 360 IS the most powerful console, it has a jet engine running it.
HOLY S@@T it sounded like a plane that malfunction during flight and that is going to crash!!!!!111
You guys know how Bloodmask is when it comes to reporting anti - PS3 news. And he gets crazy when he talks about Blu ray VS HD DVD. He's biased as they come.
Then suddenly he decides to post this? Doesn't make sense. Something is fishy. I'm telling you he's a Microsoft employee. A normal XBOX 360 fanboy won't post this.
a divine Angel or something- for no mere human being could have the sort of insight you seem to possess.
While I totally agree with your take on Bloodmask, you've done a few filpflops to ethier side of the fanboy fence, and it doesnt show a whole lot of character.
With that being said, its not someone's console bias that bothers me so much, to each his own. What bothers me is when someone skews news to present it in a bias manner to push personal agendas, or trolls positive news to spin it in thier direction. I guess the best way to mask that is to post an Anti-MS/PS artilce or video from time to time.
More and more xbox fanboys are sliding over to the dark side :D
How the hell is this news ? It is such a shame the owners & mods of this site want this site to be the way it is. Ah well it just shows how lazy they are to not want to do some real moderating.
Is some old sh1t.
I love how the guy spells "quite"..........
WTF??? Learn how to spell before you put anything on the web?
This is a dry one laugh joke. It's funny for a few seconds and then that's it. It's so not funny anymore, the more you think about it, the less funny it is.
Moving parts reside inside of most computer hardware setups. I once put together an entire pc without fans, and at the sate time increased the ventelation by using convection currents that were building inside of the system to create "thermal zones". It was a nice mini iTX mobo (Via Eden platform) and used a low power CPU, as well as a form factor that alowed it fit inside of Shuttle PC boxes.
360 is by no means an aural offender. Any optical drive when accessing will bring in the decibles. Some conceal this noise very efficiently, some use "acustic management" to maintain noise levels. Some are made out of sound reverberation-proof materials. I think there's more hot air comes from fanboys, flamers and haters than the rear of my console...and that's saying a lot!
Well as a sort of testimony my first 360 had an acceptable level of noise but ok at the end...my second one is loud as jet engine even even worse the longer you play which leads me to believe MS might had increased the speed of the fans too (well at least mine and some people I know)
but at least I know that the harder the fan works the more cooling my 360 gets so it wont die...AGAIN >.>
thats funny. i loled a lot!
bloodmask whats going on ? have you got enough money from ms to buy a ps3? new bloodmask is better than old bloodmask.
only PS3 owners have the TIME to measure noise
yes, the xbox users spend their whole time on bashing the ps3.
Because PS3s stay running long enough to do so? :p
Noise complaints aside, is there really anything else that fanboys can mention, other than dronish rants about red rings and noisey drives? I mean, let the horse die already! You'd think that PS3 pro minded individuals would rather be ACTUALY PLAYING their PS3s.
In all honesty just have fun with what you have.
as if this is not bad enough. the ps3 has best hardware and it has the best games, so your bla bla is senseless.
That was indeed funny. I must admit that the fan in the 360 is quite loud but you don't even notice it when the game starts up.
wow dude that was pretty funny
360's were loud but the new ones with the ZYPHER board and 2nd heatsink are better my ELITE and my son's PRO are both MFD 9/07 and just a little louder then a PS3 and the RROD were because the video cables were unpluged.
too old but still funny.
Someone should post the ps3 commercial. It would only be fair.
XBOX 360 = Luke Skywalker
PS3 = Darth Vadar
That's how they look.
XBOX 360 lights up green and PS3 lights up red.
Too funny. =]
lol the 360 is quite noisy but this guy is at it,is no were near as loud is this noob is making it out,hes got his hair dryer at the mic to fool all u nubs lol
You can tell this guy is a ps3 fanboy when he can't even spell. "Quite" should be quiet...nice job.
The PS3 is better when it comes to sound that way I can concentrate more on gaming and less on hardware problems like with the 360.
RROD= Xbox sucks!!!!!!!
Everyone thinks the 360 noise is over exaggerated. But, if you ACTUALLY own a 360. You would know that that is the sound of the disc being scratched (like my NBA 2k7 got scratched :'(.)
Lol funny video though. Rofl I loved the red lights too.
the 360 while playing games even with surround sound.. If you have it up really really loud than you cant hear it.. But the 360 sounds like a freaking lawn mower when its on.. its loud as hell..
haha definitely wasn't expecting that one lmao.
lame! some big bullshit!
thats the truth.. No bs there.. The 360 sounds like a freaking lawn mower...
Someone should make there own video with there 360 to prove this guy wrong.. But it will probably sound louder than this..
LOL @ the video + the 360 boys getting all defensive, learn to take a joke, sheesh son.
Depends what you got under the hood so to speak. My new 360 isn't as loud as my old one the fans in general and older disc drives do make noise at times but unless you're hiding your gaming session for one reason or another" the console should be hooked up to a 5.1 system. lol
