    Are you allright in the head?

    The Wii is built to run quiet and small. It is the least likely out of the three next gen consoles to "sound like a chainsaw".

    Are you following yourself. Pizzaluvr gave you what was a pretty good explanation to your question.

    I heard that the 360 was very very loud when it was first released but the disc drive was changed to a quiter version and its not a bit quieter. From what i've heard the PS3 is suppose to be almost silent but i don't know how confirmed that is.

    I'd guess that since the Wii is a mega upgrade on the Gamecube Nintendo will be very familiar with the hardware so hopefully it won't be too loud.

    at first i thought you meant how loud the speaker on the wiimote will be, i get it now.

    Anyone know how loud the Wiimote speaker will be? I can't really tell from the videos because of the crowd and stuff

    What does 90MN and 65NM mean? I think that the PS3 will actually be a really good console in terms of bugs and stuff. I think Sony might have learned from Microsoft's mistake in the 360 and kinked out all the bugs and it should be nice and quiet.

    The Wii however will be so quiet that it'll suck up sound like a blackhole!

    ^OOooh, but doesn't the fact its so small constitute more powerful fans, to stop overheating.



    But nevertheless, it wont be louder than a Gamecube, and as long as you're playing with the TV not muted, the sound will be ignorable, easily.

    if you read the interview on wii.com they talk about the amount of noise the console will make and the factors that they took into consideration when making the console really small yet having the console have an ALWAYS on feature :p

    Lets do this, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being 360 loud, 1 being GC loud, the wii should be about -4.

    Well judging by the size of the Wii, it should be almost nothing when turned on. On the other hand, my 360 sounds like a 747 Jet taking off. But yeah, the Wii should be very quiet.
