My xbox 360 makes this really loud buzzing sound or humming sound when I play certain games some games are fine they dont make a loud buzzing sound.

Its probably because you have the game in the wrong way. That happened to mine and i realized it was in backwards. So check that out and reply back. Also don't move your Xbox 360 with a game or DVD in it, it will get the game/ DVD scratched up.

Chatting sound on playstation 3 network

The game you are playing should have an adjustment for online chat volume when you are in the options for online play, alternitavely if you use a bluetooth headset you can control the sound of the other players with the headset.

Hope this helps.
