Sony showed its latest 360 Reality Audio technology at CES. Speakers and headphones can use the tech to transform audio and music into a surround sound experience. Fans need to imagine Dolby Atmos, and it came from Sony.\r\n\r\nThe tech is incredibly impressive, and it will positively impact gaming because the sound world of playing video would become more immersive.\r\n\r\nThe sound is better than visuals on some moments, and it can transport players in the world of the games they\u2019re playing through a 3D musical score or song.\r\n\r\nKichiro Kurozumi, Sony\u2019s head of the product planning division and branding has spoken to Forbes, and he said the company is looking forward to bringing the technology into gaming.\r\n\r\nKurozami\u2019s have been asked if 360 Reality Audio could have implications aside from music and he said they want to start simple to have a solid foundation, a future-proof tech, and a strong core.\r\n\r\nHe also said Sony is thinking of 2 to 3 tech directions in the future. One of them is to integrate 360 sound into the video, and they\u2019re highly interested in integrating the tech in interactive gaming.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s great news Sony is planning to bring the audio technology in the world of gaming because it smells success for they\u2019ve done that already in the past.\r\n\r\nSony is one of the most successful producers and distributors of audio equipment for decades, and it\u2019s only natural for the company to integrate newer audio technologies in video gaming, which is also its niche.\r\n\r\nThe integration might not happen on PS4, but it might finally be materialized on PS5. There\u2019s no news yet about the launching of PS5. An investment analyst said it might be launched before the end of next year or before April 2021.\r\n\r\nIt might come sooner than expected because Xbox One has been making leaps on audio technology. There\u2019s news Xbox One would get the Dolby Atmos, so there\u2019s pressure for Sony to not lag in terms of audio support.\r\n\r\nGaming is becoming better. There are a lot of remastered versions of cult classics lately, and playing the most popular titles with crispier details should be accompanied by a surround and more engaging soundscape.\r\n\r\nStereo will be missed. The audio world has finally moved on, and the gaming community will find themselves more than prepared on having more than two audio channels when Sony incorporates the tech on their games.\r\n\r\nIts 24 object-based channels will be arranged within a 360-degree soundstage. It might have been ambitious to craft an immersive audio format, but Sony did it again.
