'Uncharted 4' To Get 3D Sound Support For PS4 Platinum Wireless Headset To Be Released In January
Originally set to launch this holiday season, Sony's latest premium gaming headset, the Platinum Wireless Headset will finally hit the market on Jan. 12, 2017. It will cost $159.99 (MSRP), or $199.99 in Canada.
According to PlayStation blog post, the Platinum Wireless Headset sports an improved and highly positional 7.1 virtual surround sound using PlayStation's 3D audio technology. It is also compatible with PlayStation VR as well as mobile devices using the 3.5 mm audio cable that comes with the headset.
The Platinum Wireless Headset sports a hidden noise-cancelling mic, which provides crisp and clear transmission without having to add a boom mic. Its top-quality construction and design offers durability, style and extreme comfort perfect for gamers who play for hours.
Additionally, Naughty Dog will be the first to integrate 3D audio support on the Platinum Wireless Headset for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" including a patch for the game, reports GameSpot. Numerous impending games will also support 3D audio, which includes "MLB The Show 17," "Days Gone" and "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" with more games to arrive.
A YouTube video shows how the test for the Platinum Wireless Headset went for the "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" where Drake was in the attic and Elena called him from downstairs. With the 3d audio support for the game, Elena is heard calling from underneath, which improves the engagement of the scene, according to director Neil Druckmann.
Druckmann said that with games, the picture has been in the foreground as always where people see the advances from generation to generation, referencing to the Platinum Wireless Headset 3D support on "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." "But audio has been having these same leaps and bounds," he added.
Apart from the 7.1 virtual surround sound, 3D audio and 50mm drivers, Platinum Wireless Headset also has an exclusive audio mode that can be downloaded from the PlayStation Store. It also includes wireless adaptor with 3D audio components, travel pouch, 3.5mm audio cable and micro-USB charge cable.
