Of all the consoles of all the generations which one was or is the loudest? You gotta imagine it would be one of the most current ones as they run the hottest. Xbox 360 or the original xbox? I can only judge from the ones I own and compare those to other peoples overlapping experiences. So, here's my list of consoles. When I say loud it is only just noticeable and really not that bad. Dreamcast-loudest-fan is noticable. Can't really hear disc spinning over the fan, but it sqeeks and beeps during loads GameCube-loud-fans are noticeable, but not that distracting. Discs spin and load quietly (because of thier size?) PSTwo-quiet-it has no fan. I can hear the laser moving quietly every now and then, but the disc spins silently Saturn-quieter-old school. no fan. Disc spins quietly, but makes a noticeable crunching noise during loads N64-silent-I know this is not fair since cart systems make no noise, but I couldn't resist Since only disc based consoles really make any noise there are just a few left so does anyone own an original PS2 and PSOne. What about the Xbox and the 360? How about the 3 versions of the NeoGeoCD and 3DO or the 2 versions of the Sega CD. Did anyone ever own the Jaguar CD? And what about the handheld systems? I remember the GameGear's constant buzz. Does the PSP make any noise with the sound off? It is technically disc based system.
