56w ago - Today Sony Computer Entertainment Hardware Engineer Todd Tokubo has announced news of a Bioshock Infinite Audio Mode for the Pulse Elite Edition Headset.

To quote: Tomorrow marks a big day for world-acclaimed studio Irrational Games with the release of Bioshock Infinite, so it's only suitable that we mark the occasion with something special.

For the first time, we are partnering with a game developer to deliver a specially crafted audio experience exclusive to PlayStation. Tonight at midnight, we are launching a new audio mode for the PULSE-Elite Edition Headset designed especially for BioShock Infinite. Better still, it will be free.

Why a custom audio mode? Irrational Games wanted to elevate the dark world of BioShock Infinite to a new level by providing a richer gameplay experience.

We worked with them to take advantage of our new BassImpact technology embedded in the Pulse-Elite headset to create a sound profile that enables players to feel gunshots and explosions in a much more dynamic and powerful way.

Engineers on both teams worked together to tie the pulses from BassImpact to key audio elements in the game, creating a more immersive experience as you fight your way through...

To quote: Tomorrow, we€re releasing a free App to support the addition of new audio Modes for PULSE wireless stereo headset - Elite Edition.

This new app will add five new Modes to your already enhanced audio experience:

€Football (Game):
BassImpact lets you feel the crunch of bone-crushing tackles or jolts behind every kick of the football

€Horror (Movie):
Deep bass sounds are enhanced to heighten the eerie atmosphere while the high shrill of screams are boosted to make you jump out of your seat.

€Action (Movie):
The low and high sounds of explosions and gunfire are magnified delivering a bigger and more intense audio experience.
