    It's pretty flawless. You gotta love the sound, it's so satisfying. I remember on occasion just turning it on and off again just to experience the boot up :o Sony should have kept the tune for the PS2/3. It's so iconic.

    I never owned a PS1 but loved the boot up sound.

    The PS2 boot up sound was pretty shit, and the PS3 was even gayer.:wtc:

    I dislike the whole intro sound thing. Its like the console wants everyone in the house to know you turned it on.

    I remember first seeing that PS1 boot screen :eek5: :bowdown:

    Gave you a feeling of "Whoa, this is the new generation of gaming"

    Now they're all sensible and just boot into a dash :o

    PS2 boot was a mess.

    hence why after the Saturn and what 6 months later Sega announces the dreamcast EA said fuck you and didn't develop games for them anymore.

    I still want to buy a Sega CD just to round off my collection :o

    Kind of want a CDX just for the novelty.

    :werd: I bought Nemesis for the PS3 and it still has the ending sound with the last half of the boot screen. Got a little chill from it as it transitioned into the RE loading. :rofl:
