Halo 5 Console Sounds

GAME Unwraps just fully unboxed the Halo 5 1TB Limited Edition Console Bundle showing off the sounds for startup, eject, empty-tray eject, and shutdown.

I’ve added a time marker leading direct to the sounds for those who would rather cut to the chase/save the experience for release day/have seen 343’s video/don’t care about the rest.

Can’t link yet, sorry! Hope you guys like it… I’m not the biggest fan :confused: Oh well, keeping my preorder!

Thanks! I need to get as active here as I was on B-net

You’d think they’d have recognizable sounds rather than random electronic or futuristic sounds. Lol.

Did you get your hands on the Reach 360? I still have no idea what half of those sounds are.

It was the same with the Halo 4 xbox 360

I know! I don’t remember the Reach console, but the Halo 4 console’s sounds were annoying. Beautiful console; annoying sounds. I hated that sound every time I turned it on.

I imagine that the novelty wears off pretty quickly… There should really be an option to turn it off.

I just got used to it after a while, but yeah it was annoying

I wonder if you could open up the xbone and just cut the wire leading to the internal speakers?

Thanks! Now I know what my Xbox will sound like!

Does anyone else notice the mic he unboxes??? It looks completely different from the Xbox One headsets that I have seen.

yeah looks like the 360 mics, does anyone even still use them?

Holy -Yoink-! It does look weird. It has the switch on the cord like the older 360 models.

Really hoping that it is not the new Xbox One mic… I like the original for the One way better.

As far as i’m aware, if you turn on or off your console with your controller it won’t make any sound

Looks good. Only 3 days left until mine arrives. Would be cool if you could change/choose what sounds you want but.

The Reach console only makes two sounds. One is the shield recharge and the other is an overshield pick up, both of which have been mostly the same since the first Halo. So they’re completely recognizable unless you’ve never played a single Halo before.

I just looked it up and I am at a loss for words. I’m convinced this guy’s never played Halo in his life.

It sounds like the plasma-grenade build-up, sans explosion.

Now THAT… that I most certainly would not do.

You’re welcome! That was my intention (: just wish they could’ve shown them sooner, eg back when the console was announced and had a whole ViDoc for it. Could’ve easily been a make or break for many.

Thanks for this info! Will have to get into this habit, I guess.

Welp. GAME messed up my preorder; despite me ensuring I had changed it, they chose to send it to the address I chose when I initially placed the preorder. I luckily managed to intercept it before it reached the courier and have had it rerouted. On track to me now, but sadly a day late.
