Microsoft "It's game time for Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft's chief executive. Microsoft disclosed a series of management changes on Tuesday that will alter the shape of its business unit responsible for products like the Zune music player, Xbox gaming console and phones. Most notably, Robbie Bach, the current head of the entertainment and devices group, will retire from Microsoft after 22 years at the company. As a result, Mr. Ballmer will take a more hands-on role in Microsoft's gadgets and games by having various division heads report directly to him." Maybe we'll finally see an Xbox that doesn't sound like a tornado. I recently finally got the opportunity to fiddle around with a PlayStation 3 (the big one), and by god, the Xbox is a joke, construction-wise, compared to Sony's beast.

PS3 quiet?

I have the 80GB PS3 that was the MGS4 bundle. So it's the big one. It's heavy, it's big, and it's loud. I have to turn the TV up everytime the fan kicks on. The key is to keep the vents clean for max airflow to keep that fan from coming on so often.

I have actually considered buying a xbox for the bedroom to use with ps3mediaserver. I didn't know it had the same issues with loud fan noise. I had never considered buy a MS product until Sony pulled the OtherOS crap the other month.
