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.

The tech is incredibly impressive, and it will positively impact gaming because the sound world of playing video would become more immersive.

The sound is better than visuals on some moments, and it can transport players in the world of the games they’re playing through a 3D musical score or song.

Kichiro Kurozumi, Sony’s 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.

Kurozami’s 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.

He 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’re highly interested in integrating the tech in interactive gaming.

It’s great news Sony is planning to bring the audio technology in the world of gaming because it smells success for they’ve done that already in the past.

Sony is one of the most successful producers and distributors of audio equipment for decades, and it’s only natural for the company to integrate newer audio technologies in video gaming, which is also its niche.

The integration might not happen on PS4, but it might finally be materialized on PS5. There’s 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.

It might come sooner than expected because Xbox One has been making leaps on audio technology. There’s news Xbox One would get the Dolby Atmos, so there’s pressure for Sony to not lag in terms of audio support.

Gaming 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.

Stereo 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.

Its 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.
