186w ago - Today Sony's Hardware Product Marketing Manager Anand Agarwal has revealed that an official Wireless Stereo Headset is coming for the PS3 entertainment system.

According to their [Register or Login to view links], surround sound on the PS3 requires system software version 3.70 or later and surround sound does not work with Blu-ray Disc movies.

To quote: Do you hear that sound? It's the sound of the enemy approaching your bunker. Only you've heard them way before they've even seen you and now your commandos are ready to unload.

What's your advantage? It's simple - the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset - the latest addition to the PlayStation 3 accessories family.





The official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset will be available for $99.99 (MSRP) at retailers nationwide this September. Many more of your favorite franchises, such as [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links], were also designed for surround sound audio.

Featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset lets you hear all the minor in-game audio clues clearly, whether you are in a firefight in a first-person shooter game or racing for the checkered flag.

Designed with comfort in mind for hours of gameplay, it's the perfect addition to your PlayStation experience. Connecting the Wireless Stereo Headset with PS3 is made easy with the included USB Wireless Adapter.

Precise volume controls and accessible microphone mute make it so you never have to interrupt gameplay to fumble for buttons. You can easily stay informed about battery status, sound controls, etc. with on-screen headset status updates.

On top of that, the Wireless Stereo Headset also offers the highest quality voice chat for crystal clear online conversations. The mic is retractable so you can put it away if you just want to listen to music or play a single player game.

We're very excited to be able to offer you yet another new way to get immersed in the game. Be sure to keep checking the Blog for more information soon.

Sadly - it HAS USB dongle - as already discussed here the built in chip would not be able to handle the bandwith for the multichannel audio

You don't like sony products, don't buy them, plain and simple. This article was just about the new wireless stereo headset, nothing more. Stop complaining about everything, it's annoying.
