    forgive me if i sound a little stupid but you do mean download a game from xbox live and play via your hard drive dont you as you can run a iso from the 360 hard drive like you could on the old original xbox if you had it chipped

    I used to have a 360, and from what I can remember it was noisy as hell. Whether playing a game, watching a DVD or even streaming a video over NetFlix it was noisy. Very noisy!

    Had a PS3 since Jan, and most of what i do is watch blueray/DVD - does this perfectly (as in quietly). I can hear the drive when playing a game, but for DVD's its fine.

    Can't say I've dismantled my PS3... but I've never heard a peep out of it beyond disc activity - or maybe I'm not really concerned with how loud my PS3 may be because... I'm actually using it.

    On another disagreement with myself, by myself this time...

    If you're an audiophile, you'll want to invest in the slim version, with it's direct support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

    PS3 Slim bitsreams Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA audio, at last

    MS released an update which allowed you to transfer games to the HDD but you still needed the game disk as an anti-piracy measure because the xbox won't start the game (from the hdd) if the game disk wasn't inserted.

    hope that makes sense!
