With the launch of a new generation of video games consoles comes the expectation of a huge leap forward in technology. After all, a single console generation currently lasts around seven years. And yes, there were hardware revisions in the last generation to try and keep up with the world's technological advancements (namely 4K), but it's still just a new coat of shiny paint on the same house. And sometimes that paint doesn't even dry properly and instead looks a bit of a mess (Xbox's Dolby Atmos implementation, anyone?).
Interesting, I know Sony in the past has always tried to push their own standards. Will be interesting to see what happens as things unfold.
I don't even know what an "Atmos fan" is.
Their goal is great audio for all not just those with Dolby Atmos licensed products.
I bet those Atmos fans are worry that they might lose that superiority of spending thousands on their Dolby Atmos setup or something.
And Those who can afford Dolby Atmos are so much better off financially than gamers that this is more of a fake concern than anything,they can just buy another system if they hate the Playstation approach to 3D audio so much.
Kinda like the PC masterace in gaming we have the same equivalent snobs in audiophile community.
Nobody is getting true ATMOS from a console anyway, who cares.
No - people without Home Theatre setups will have better sound from their TV's.
