I actually like the startup sound, glad they finally added it for when the system is powered on with the controller.

Maybe they can change it to using your own sound clips in a future update. Having custom sounds like on pc or your phone.

That would be great and offer some funny startup sounds.

I was pretty pissed that all of sudden it has a start up and power down sound after the last update.
It's not as loud as the beep on my ps4 but I still don't like it.

Yeah, first thing I did was look into turning it off. I'm glad to hear that we'll have options in the future so people can choose if they want to use the sounds or not.

Options are always good, like having BC!

It's good because it's a console alarm system similar to the one in my car, I'll know when someone messes with property. Pesky lil kids, they're part of the family but damn they're annoying, especially when your trying to sleep /s

I like it because in the past I've had times where my controller wouldn't turn on the system due to loss of power, and it makes it more clear when the system is on / off.

I'd like for when you have multiple users on a console that the start up screen can show the users in bubbles plus a guest like it sorta does when your opening an app that requires a user to be singed in
