Is this because its installing? I was playing Killzone last night and this morning and it sounds like a small vacuum cleaner. Maybe its my machine ha.

The blue ray spinning speed is 6x unlike the ps3 2x. Thats why you will have to hear a sound

Yeah I noticed this too. It's mostly because of the disc drive ramping up during the install process. Once it gets the bulk of the data installed it chills out.
When you say chilled out does it literally stop? Or are there still bits and pieces it reads from the disc?

It's a ploy to make PS4 owners go all digital so that they can be sucked into Sony's ecosystem!!!

I assume this is only during the install process. Once it's through with that, it should quiet down, if it even spins at all beyond the initial authentication.

people may have forgotten, but even computer drives are loud when you are installing a game from disc

Is it less, as or more loud than the Slims that are loud? My slim gets pretty loud after a couple of minutes of playtime.

Just installing or playing? Need for information!
Edit: Installing while playing? Man I am out of the ps4 loop or I am just sleepy from yesterday. Update with more info OP!

I wish you could install your games and not have to use the disc to play - I hate that. I try to get most things digitally, but Australia gets done over with prices on digital games. I'd go all digital if I could, just for speed and noise reasons - not having to find a place for a new game case is another bonus.

Any official numbers comparing the dB to the legacy systems? I was under the impression this would be damned quiet compared to the 360.

I and many others want a clarification now please, stop the troll posts:

Does the Ps4 disc stop spinning completly when the install is finished, or does it still spin/read data from the disc, and how loud is it then.

Thanks.

Anyone throw a Blu-Ray in there? It would be annoying to hear the spin while reading the movie data...

It's a faster Bluray drive, it was always going to be louder than the PS3 and as others have said once it is finished installing it is far quieter.
