Yes, they listen to people who are hacking firmware of current drives so they are changing them. But I do applaud this, I cannot stand how ridiculously loud my 360 is, to the point that I put keep it in a big storage closet adjacent to my home theater, with cables running throught he walls. Still though, even with the quiet drive, the power supply & fans make too much noise!

I wonder if they will do an integrated HD DVD drive in the future.
