Surround sound environment delivered in all-in-one speaker, offering a whole new PlayStation experience to the living room
Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) today announced that it will release a subwoofer built-in, all-in-one Surround Sound System for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system in fall 2010 in Japan, North America, Europe/PAL territories, and Asian countries/regions at a recommended retail price of 19,800 yen (including tax), US$199, and euro 199 respectively. Users will be able to enjoy immersive audio on the PlayStation 3 system by simply placing the speaker in front of the television and connecting it to the PS3 system with the optical digital cable. The Surround Sound System comes with two audio inputs − an optical audio input for connecting high-end entertainment systems including PS3, and an analog audio input for connecting portable devices like the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system to enjoy listening to music in the living room.
