No surprise there. My Wii makes all sorts of sound when it is loading from the disc.
Also, wtf is this about a Wii HDD? When its accessing its internal memory its completely.
Meh. I have a 360 and I bear through the noise.
Yeah the Wii makes noise... and? OH NOES I HAVER TO RETURNS ITS. IT MAKEA DEE NOISER!
Yeah, the disc drive is definitely noisy, although to my ears it still doesn't beat the Dreamcast out as all time loud-drive champion.
My Wii only makes noise if the stream lands directly in the water, instead of washing smoothly down the side of the bowl.
In general, I don't even here the Wii. Xbox 360 all the time. Disc drives are another story, like the article says. But it's a minor nuisance (except in the case of putting a Codebreaker into my friend's PS2, my god that thing sounds like it's gonna die! )
Woo Hoo! Wii wins again!
Actually, it's quietest in 2 of the 3 test areas, while clealy vaulting above the competition in the third.
The 360 seems the most consistently noisy, but the PS3 looks slightly louder on average than the 360.
What would matter most is the average noise output over an hour of typical gaming.
I fail to see why anybody would even do such a test. Boredom?
What's next, a test to see which console lights up a dark room the most?
Hey man thats not a bad idea!!! Maybe I should try that? Errrr....I only have a Wii though....damn!!!
Oh NOOO!!! Someone said something other than praise for the Wii??? Burn them at the stake...
Seriously, if this had fallen against the PS3, everyone would've put another nail in the coffin for Sony. If it had been the 360 it would be them still not getting it right and screwing people over with the rumored newer version of the 360.
If this had fallen against the PS3, it would be probably the most minor of the problems the PS3 has. As for the 360, I remember people complaining about it being loud a year ago, so we already knew it put out a touch of noise.
I always thought the 360 made more noise than the Wii. The PS3 makes a lot less noise as well.
Dreamcast sounded like it was shredding the disc.
If your console makes too much noise the easy solution is to put it into a small tight cabinet with a door. Make sure there are no holes, except just enough for your cables and you shouldn't get much noise at all.
If you're still bothered by noise, then open up the cabinet and fill any empty space in the cabinet with some sort of flammable stuffing, to further deaden the noise.
This will stop your noise. Fact.
*looks at Dreamcast*
And the enclosed space then generates lots of heat. Hope you don't have a lot of equipment in that area or some of it will stop working.
I think he was kidding, and meant just that.
At least, I hope he was.
I think that was the point, mate. Once it is dead it won't make any more noise.
Actually, it works both ways. You wouldn't be able to hear the nose so well before the console dies.
