Video: Surround Sound System for PS3 is Available Next Week
It was first announced at E3 this year, and today Sony Peripherals Product Manager Anand Agarwal has confirmed that the Surround Sound System for PS3 will be available next week and shared a video of it in action!
To quote: Back at E3, we had announced that we will be releasing an all-in-one Surround Sound System for the PS3 system with built-in subwoofer. A device made for the ultimate gamer, the Surround Sound System will be available next week in the U.S. and Canada.
It's perfect for use with games and Blu-ray movies and more importantly, is easy to use. You'll be able to enjoy immersive audio by simply placing the Surround Sound System in front of the television and connecting it to the PS3 system with the optical digital cable. The sleek design of the Sound Bar compliments the design of your PS3.
So, why pick up the Surround Sound System? The Surround Sound System utilizes cutting-edge technologies, including Sony's S-Force PRO Front Surround Sound that creates the equivalent of a home theater system, bringing to life in-game sounds not normally audible with conventional acoustic systems.
Bringing in SCE's expertise in both entertainment and technology acquired from developing games, four sound fields and two sound modes have been designed with the help of our expert game sound designers. Check out this video that has excerpts from our conversations with the game sound design team:

looks alright.. is it only VIRTUAL surround sound, or are there more speakers? forgive my ignorance sony but i thought for it to be surround sound you needed more than just speakers in front of you.. i bet it will be dear in australia, if we ever get it here..
Lets face it, SONY speakers have a history of being crap! Think I will stick with Samsung Home Cinema system for now. Having said that it may be good for my second PS3. Lets just see how much this baby retails for?
