Nice idea; however I echo the worry about loading times. Still, fingers crossed, eh?
(you were right, Brad; it's like a fucking jet aircraft taking off now)
i'm wondering, is it possible to make it quieter via software?
The software update will force the drive to run at a slower speed, in theory, causing less noise. It's not a real solution to the problem in my opinion, especially if it causes longer load times.
They should totally make it -louder-.
"YEAH... PLAYING XBOX! HIIII!"
Although longer load times on Smackdown vs Raw =
Crackdown seems to have been the game to get my 360 going like VWWWRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!! when I turn it on. Not sure if I'd want to sacrifice load speed for noise, though.
Haven't picked up any iteration of the new one, but...the loading times on '07 on the 360 sucK?
I'd figured that by this point, they'd have at least sussed it out slightly...man.
there are load screens so that you can get to the next load screens. no bullshit.
Yup, it's absoloutely mental.
Jeezus murphy fricking holyman. That sounds like they downgraded the loading to SvR '06 PSP levels.
I think it might be worse than the PSP, although that would really be something.
At least the game itself is a lot of fun
I will take the noise over longer load times any day. I haven't played my 360 in a while, it is in my brother's room since his broke and because he plays it more, but the noise never really bothered me. The load times on some games on the other hand drive me up the wall. Here's a simple solution for those complaining about the noise, TURN THE SOUND UP!
As long as you don't have a sleeping spouse or kids.
I would imagine people in apartments or that share walls with neighbors would probably have a tough time with that as well.
True but there are those that don't care also. It doesn't seem to bother people on the road with those load car speakers. Still the only real way to solve the noise problem is to learn to live with it or get a new system later on in it's life that probably will be quieter, unless you like longer load times.
One of the contract IT guys at work has a 360, and he keeps it inside of an entertainment center with glass doors, which keeps at least some of the noise from reaching his ears.
I don't mind it that much. I can block out noise if I focus on something. In this case it's games. If it means loner load times, no. No!
At this point, I'd settle for longer load times if it meant my 360 didn't sound like the Death Star powering up every time I play Rainbow Six.
The 360 doesn't hold a candle to the PS3 when it comes to noise. PS3 almost overpowers the surround sound.
I KNOW! I rented Rainbow Six, and I swear the 360 gave away my position when I was rescueing hostages
Compared to the 360 and PS3, the Wii is like a dead rat. I can hear nothing from that sucker.
That's interesting, see, in a whole office of PS3's I can only hear them when they boot up, for like 2 seconds.
I thought PS3's were frickin' loud until I realized I was hearing the fan on the in-store display cabinet.
