The PS4 made me shiver. The Xbox One did too, but much less so than that PS4. That thing sounds god-awful.

haha disc drives are so 1990's.
Do all the consoles sound like that?

The problem with disc and disc drives, is they can get hot, and can cds explode in the drive.

Pure digital is the way to go.

I liked the PS4 one, sounded like an old printer or something. Though if I had paid for the sixty bucks that was making that noise, I would probably be laughing less.

Frightening because disc drives aren't supposed to make these horrid noises.
Nope. That's why these are so awful.

My 360 sounds kinda like that PS4, so it didn't bother me too much.
But the One made me cringe so hard, it sounds like a card on a bike wheel.

Explain to me how both videos have previous uploads belonging to the opposite console, no bias at all. I really hope these guys didn't just buy the opposite console and destroy the disk trays in an attempt to sabotage potential customers and ruin a console someone else could have cherished for its lifespan.

Dude, I really don't think anyone is obsessed enough with console-wars to waste $460-560 for a 6-14 second YouTube video. That would be incredibly dumb.

Both of the consoles are, in fact, faulty with their drives; they should call helpline. I hope others won't have drive issues thus far?

I'm rather curious as to what is making the noise in the PS4. If the disc was fine afterwards, it's not scratching anything (at least anything significant), right? Even when the disc was only partially in, it made the noise.

WELL SO LONG AS IT DOESN'T HAPPEN TO -MY- CONSOLE, WHO CARES RIGHT?
