    Is there any 5.1 Xbox or PS2 software available? If not, is there any coming in the NEAR future? Also, is anyone using either system in their home audio setup? If so, how does it sound? Is there any real low bass information on any of the disk?

    Thanks

    As far as I know... ALL XBOX games are in Dolby Digital 5.1 [​IMG]
    On the PS2 side... there have been a couple of DTS 5.1 releases by EA.

    All XBOX games are in 5.1, whether it is obvious or not is rare. Rarely in DOA3 will you hear directional effects, but HALO is a great show off for a 5.1 setup. Great directional effects.

    I also recommend a 4+ player game of Rockets on Prisoner. Also, if any player (in Campaign or multiplayer mode) is reduced to the red zone, you can hear heart beats, which get louder the closer you are to death.

    If you want to give your sound system a good work out I would suggest giving Enclave a try as well. One of the few 5.1 games out there that can compete with Halo's directionality and bass.

    I wasn't sure if I was going to purchase an XBox or PS2 but I think the decision has been made for me. Any idea if there are any effects on the professional sports games like football, basketball or baseball?

    I have three sports games for X-Box. NHL Hitz, World Series Baseball and NFL 2K3. IMO, the best sound by far is on World Series Baseball. The crowd noise is so cool and the crack of the bat and the sound of ball in glove is very realistic. Basically it's the crowd noise that does it for me. Makes me think I'm at the park. Great ambiance.

    Oh Boy. This is going to be good. I am planning to buy my Xbox this weekend and hopefully I could be up and running by Saturday night. I will let you guys know of my findings once I run the Xbox through my system with a few choice games.

    Thanks
     
  14. I got my xbox and playing Halo is sweet. I have the high def pack with component video and optical audio into my receiver. You can track the Covenent around you in a room which is really cool.

    I'm surprised Romier didn't mention SH2. Sure its not the best sound from the Xbox, but what sound there is sure can scare the poop out of you.
