Here is an excellent link for all XBOX 360 users.

Orientation - Xbox 360 University - IGN Xbox 360

Almost everything you wanted to know about the 360 can be found here

Hi Team,

Santa got an XBox 360 for the Kids and I have a question regarding acceptable noise levels -

Whenever my Son puts WWE 2011 into the machine it Buzzes like a swarm of African Killer bees on the rampage, the game plays but the background noise is I think too high, is this common?
the other game that gives a degree of background noise is BFBC2, (my game) but nothing compared to the WWE game.
Other games we have are Pure, COD Black Ops, FIFA 11, FIFA World Cup 2010, a few Kinect games but none of these make any noticeable noise, my wife is telling me we should have got the PS3 but I'm an XBox fanboy and pushed for this console, is there a solution to this noise problem??

Is the noise coming from the console itself or as sound out put on your speakers / TV?

If it is the console, than it sounds like a faulty drive or cooling fan. (Wrestling games have to load a heck of a lot of file per match for each individual wrestler, etc.) Take it back and get it replaced.

If it is coming through the speakers than it may be a fault with the game itself or the cable (HDMI, AV, etc.)

Just out of interest are you installing your games to your hard drive? If not, I highly recommend you do, it will give your laser a much longer life span.

It comes out of the console itself, so the reason is that the drive is working harder for these games than some others? I will get the thing swapped over asap if that is the case
how do you load the games to the HD?

Thanks for the prompt reply!!

Some games do cause the console to be worked harder, especially if you are running the games from the disk.

Assuming that you have the new "slim" model, the fans are a lot quieter than the original XBOX, so I would recommended you exchange your console ASAP.
