When I play games, or grinding, and I know I'm not close to an achievement popping I swear I hear the sound of an achievement.

I know there's a similar thread for this but all they speak about is when they're not playing any video game.

When I'm in certain 360 games, mainly Prey I think, I kept hearing it, if that's because some of the tunes or sound effects reminds me of an achievement I do not know, but it's just really weird though.

When I was doing my 1,500 games in Fracture I heard that noise all the time.

Yeah same here at least on easy games like lego games only to find out that lovely noise was a friend sign in...

Text notification? For you phone? If so, where'd you find that at?

Haha yeah happens all the time, worst is when friend signs on right when you're expecting to get an achievement.

Happens to me all the time, especially if I get a text.

I have my phone's text notification sound set to the achievement unlocked sound and whenever I hear the sound I need to check both my phone and the TV to see which one it was that made it.

If it's neither, then it's a sound in-game or something else that's slightly similar enough that I instantly think it's the actual sound.

Ahhhh, tell me where you got your phone notification sound from?

Or is this only if you have a WP7?

1 question - have you jail breaked your phone?

if the answer is no then you cant use it you have to use the standard apple ones, if its yes then you can but given mine isnt jail breaked I cant tell you how but it cant be too hard :Bounce:

Yeah I had a feeling you needed to do that in order to use it. No mines not jail broken and have no desire to either.

Thanks though for the link. I can use this as my email notification at work!

Some games seem to have really similar sounds - which in turn drives me crazy.

It's not only you, man. Happens to me every time when I try to get an achievement I really hate. Also when I have a new game. I don't mind it though, "achievement unlocked" is one of the sweetest sound ever. :D

I hate it when a friend signs in, even if I know I'm nowhere near an achievement I still think I've unlocked one :P
