One of my favorite features on my xbox360 is to install a game to my hard drive so I don't have to listen to the whirring and clicking of a disc playing, that and it prevents wear from the disc drive. I remember the Wii getting a bit loud with games that have to constantly load stuff.

Don't think so, and the Wii U is actually one of the louder consoles as far as disc spin as the thing constantly spins the disc... yeah.

Ah :S I was hoping Nintendo would have used some high capacity cartridges or something for the Wii U. Why can't consoles get away from the lousy discs? Too many moving parts, sigh.

The Wii U is silent. If yours is making noise, there's something wrong.

Not true. The drive spins constantly, unless there's no disk in it.

Which wears down the life of the console.

Because it will never happen unless you find a way to mass produce high capacity cartridges cheaper than the few cents it takes to press a disc.

I may be in the minority here, but I play my games with sound 'on' and music 'on'.

Nintendo was the only one of the console companies to use cartridges in the PS/N64/Saturn era, and look where THAT got them.

Which would take a while unless you constantly play the system. The 360 didn't even have the option until a few years into it's lifespan.
