You simply hook up this special speaker with a digital optical cable to the PlayStation 3, placing it in front of your TV and voila - surround for you.
This speaker includes a sub-woofer (the thing really big booms come from) as well. It will cost you $199/199 Euro if you want one gracing your ears.
"The Surround Sound System utilizes Sony’s S-Force PRO Front Surround Sound that generates rich realistic surround sound over one front speaker," say Sony. "It will immerse users into a cinema-like experience in the living room, making them feel like they are actually in the game or movie itself." Do we live in an age of sci-fi?!
No, we don't, otherwise Microsoft would have completed their Death Star by now, to spook Apple. "It comes with two audio inputs − an optical audio input for connecting high-end entertainment systems including PS3, and an analog audio input for connecting portable devices like the PSP to enjoy listening to music in the living room."
"The form factor of the system features a sleek and casual design that matches perfectly with the PS3 system, and delivers dynamic sound without the physical space required by a traditional home theater system," continued the blurb, reports .
Perfect then for someone without the room to have a surround sound system installed in their room, but who wants to really hear those pew-pew noises deafen their soul. Does something like this help you upstage the neighbours in the audio wars?
