This is what the PS4 sounds like when it starts up

Has the release of the next-gen got you all excited for the new developments in graphics, connectivity and gameplay? Don't be so dull, there's more to it than that: like how the consoles sounds when you hit the on button. With that in mind, here's a PS4's start beep.

See? Don't say we never do anything for you.

On a somewhat more serious note however, that's a nice quiet internal fan the PS4 is using there. That was far beyond the raging typhoon sounds that emanated from early generation Xbox 360s, so it sounds like the next-gen could be a much quieter one. Of course disc drive spin is one of the worst culprits for noise generation, but with both Microsoft's and Sony's systems using BluRay discs, where the rotation rate is much slower, it shouldn't be too bad.

KitGuru Says: Somehow I hope this video is the one that convinces someone get a PS4 over an Xbox One.
