Have any of you ever heard the spooky voices coming from the background on the xbox main configuration screen???. The first time I turned on the xbox I noticed the background sound, and I thought, cool! and just when I was about to put a disc on the tray I heard this kind of weird robotic voice on the background!!! it scared the s$%# out of me!!, I then waited to see if it happen again but it did not! until.......a couple of days ago I was about to turn of the machine and BINGO! I heard it again. The next time you find yourself on the config. screen pay close attention to the sound, and try to figure out what IT! says, THIS IS NO JOKE I SWEAR.

No, he speaks the truth. It actually is kinda scary...and I dont do drugs. I prefer to call them what OXM did - the "Super Creepy Satanic Rumblings."

I have heard of this happening, but it has never actully happend to me. I never pay to much attention to the sound on the configuration screen, but I will now, and see if it happens.

Mine has that sound too. The trick is not turning it too loud. It says "I own your soul".

I have to admit, I've heard that weird robotic voice a few times. Can't really tell what it says, but it's there, you just have to be there at the right time to hear it.

actually the longer you have the xbox dashboard on the more you will hear those interesting sounds.

Yeah, I've heard 'em too. It sounds like a robotic female saying some thing, just not sure what, and some screeching and winding noises too.

Yeah, its just a jabbering robotic noise. Leave your Xbox on at the dashboard and turn the volume up, you'll be able to hear the voice just jabbering in the ambience.:watchout:

I noticed this to. Im a perfectionist so one day I just sat there editing EVERY SINGLE SONG TITLE to the exact name on the cd and those little voices started and they got more frequent and they were goin off at me like every twenty seconds. Its too hard to hear what they say I tried turning my surround all the way up and still couldnt make it out.

I never noticed until I got my theater system. I was just looking through my hard drive at all my game saves. I was bored and I had the volume turned up on my receiver. I heard the voice, but it was from the rear speakers only. I jumped. I wasn't quite ready for that.

Something tells me that Microsoft didn't intend for the Xbox to be used in instrumental transcommunication. :D But if that's the case, we shall have to contact the Spiricom project immediately. Good thing they're right up the road from me!

The longer you are on the dash or going through the options, the louder it speaks, and the more frequent it does. I've just heard it yambering on, I can't understand what there saying.

I turned up the sound on full and sat down for 20 minutes listening to it up close. It sounds like raidio transmitions. but i still couldn't make out what they were saying.

i would like to know whats really goin on in the dashboard.


maybe its just a sound that sounds like voices or commotion goin on.

i think its just for an ambience "techy" feel. nothing really to be worried about. i don't think they are saying anything in particular.

take this sort of test that is similar to the voices heard from xbox. if u keep ur volume high, u could hear it at the end. but this one is much more scarier.

Haha :) I like the test.

Also, you don't need a 5.1 system to hear those robotic voices. It's just mumberish stuff and it never scared me one bit.

I think M$ put that to give the Xbox more of a 'futuristic' feel when powered up.

Actually, I like it. Makes me feel I own a personal 'Xbox Robot'. :D

Yeah, those effects are on every Xbox. Nothing new. It simply says, "be sure to drink your Ovaltine".

I heard it for the first time 2 years ago when I first got XBOX. I just finished playing Halo for the first time and then had it on the config screen where I heard it. It scared the hell out of me.
