Holy...that's an insane observation. Just watched a video of system startups after seeing this. I think my favorite startup at the moment is the 360's. It's simple like most current ones, but it really matches the systems design I think. It's also kind of weird that the PS3 slim eliminates the little chime after the strings.
Yes and I still don't get it. So I get that it's sped up but...the GC menu ACTUALLY sounds just like that when sped up? I dunno but I still find it very hard to believe. If true it's the most ridiculous impossible easter egg of all time. It's like, how can one possibly connect the two? When I listen to the slow version I hear no semblance of the famicom version.
