LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- CES 2008 -- THX Ltd., Neural Audio Corp. and Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced that Prototype, the first-person shooter (FPS) for next-gen gaming consoles and PCs, will be the world's first video game to feature Neural-THX(R) Surround. The Neural-THX Surround technology enabled Radical Entertainment, an internal development studio of Sierra Entertainment, to extend the surround sound experience from 5.1 to 7.1, allowing gamers with Neural-THX Surround capabilities on their audio-video receiver to play Prototype in 7.1 discrete surround sound. Prototype will go on sale in the U.S. in fall 2008.

Prototype and inFamous are looking awesome.

This will sound awesome on my stereo headphones. I kid, very cool indeed, will be quite the experience if you have the correct setup

lynx1halo3935d ago

they make headphones now that can project a surround sound image in your ears using algorithms to place the sounds just saying

i thought prototype was a 3rd person actioner- guess those screenshots lied then

Skerj3935d ago (Edited 3935d ago )

Yeah [email protected] it an FPS.


@Everyone, it's still a 3rd person open world action adventure game. Earthtimes screwed up or was misinformed.

Lcarrero53935d ago

so did I. I want some in-game footage.

shotputking3935d ago

i was definitely looking forward to this game... if it somehow made the transition to fps, then i probably won't even buy it, i have too many of them already... hopefully it was just easier for thx to understand a "fps" for their press release, as opposed to third person action/adventure game...

mullet3935d ago (Edited 3935d ago )

I'm pretty sure it's an error. I mean, Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was in 3rd person and I expect the same from Prototype. I must say that if it's in FPS form I will not buy it or even rent it. I'll save that money for inFamous and other titles.

khrisnifer3934d ago

They simply got it wrong on the press release - trust me, it's a 3rd person action game and it's gonna kick major a$$

This game is shaping up to be another must have title on the Xbox 360

everyone get ready for another season of "how much BS zhuk can spread" and "zhuk sounds like a retard with his repetitive comments about how the 360 is more powerful blah blah blah most devs agree that ps3 is more powerful"

mullet3935d ago

He trolls with multiple accounts and gives himself bubbles, obviously.
