    Also, go to the Gaming-age.com forums and you will see plenty of threads about this.
    Dark Jedi Knight (EA canada) made a post saying there will be an announcement from EA/DTS soon...
    PS: SSX Trick and NHL 2002 will be the first PS2 games to use real-time DTS.

    Sweet. It might not be 5.1, but its closer to it than it was before.

    This is cool. I wonder just how much compression they'll be using, and how it will sound? Nintendo loses out because of the lack of a digital audio connection, unfortunately.

    P.S. Morgan, DTS is 5.1!

    Oh yeah, duh on me.
    EA has been publishing a lot of SquareSoft games, maybe they can delay FFX by a month and implement 5.1 into it.
    And people said it couldn't be done on the PS2.
    I heard that the GCN can do 5.1 (I don't know how they would have it go out) but it has to be done on the software, which is why they don't have an output for it. Thats what I heard, and that was a long time ago, so I'm not sure if thats still true.

    This is cool to see. EA does a lot of things wrong in their games, but they can do a lot of things better than anyone else.

    I said they should add a month so they could spend the time from now until its release on adding the 5.1 and doing the localization. I hope that a LOT of future PS2 games have 5.1, cuz the only game that I have that uses it (in FMV) is The Bouncer.

    I'm a little confused on whether or not future games will use Dolby Digital as well as DTS, and what the difference will be....
