I own a "fat" PS3, but I treated myself to the recent XBOX 360 (+6 games) deal from Argos. I've just got round to connecting it up and I have to say I'm shocked a the noise of the thing.

Is this normal or is mine faulty? I sometimes play my PS3 at night so I have the volume on low, I don't think there is a chance of playing this thing in the night.

Is there anything that I need to do to reduce the noise? I just hope the neighbours don't report me to the council !

you can try to reduce the noise by installing the games to harddrive :thumbsup: it'll make a little difference try it

You get used to it. With the game sounds I don't tend to hear it, but as mentioned when your on dashboard and it says play 'x' press Y then install to HDD, and when you want to play press Y and then play for hardrive. Nice and quiet :)

inb4 fps_dominator gones on about how much quieter the ps3 is

Ah - so have I been done with the deal? The flurry of deals were for the Arcade version, which has no hard drive.

I I buy one does it copy the whole game to the HD?

arcade is louder than other models. And it copys the whole game but you still need to put the disk in to play it. Like I said you dont notice it with game sounds just turn the tv up or if it bothers you that much buy a HDD for £20

They're hit and miss. Some 360's are loud, others are very loud.
I thought it was a running joke until I got one.

I've currently got 3 games installed to the HDD MW which installs approx 6.8GB - Rockband Beatles 4.4GB and The Saboteur...

I get very little sound from my 360 this way

Cheers looks like the HD is the way to go. Pity I should have done alittle more research :thinking: and bought the elite model. Thanks :thumbsup:

not that i'm biting at the above stupid comment, however if it does rrod, unlikely being a jasper model, then you have a 1 year guarantee with argos, or a 3 year warranty with M$ :thumbsup:
