    I think it's a leftover from the early 90's:
    "Wow, that's cool, the computer can make sounds! What will we have next? 640x480 graphics with more than 16 colours?"

    You guys made me miss the PS1 boot sound, I got a anniversary update on my PS4 that actually gave me this sound back which I thought was neat.
