Hi guys, I just got a PR bulletin from dts regarding GTA:VC being the first video game released in the dts format. Here is a copy of the bulletin: GRAND THEFT AUTO: VICE CITY FEATURES DTS SURROUND SOUND Latest Version of Popular Game Raises the Bar for Audio Agoura Hills, CA - October 30, 2002 - DTS announced today that Rockstar Games has become the latest developer to incorporate DTS Interactive surround sound technology for PlayStationÒ2 games into the hotly anticipated release, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Only DTS allows PlayStationÒ2 players to experience real-time interactive discrete surround sound during actual gameplay. Widely expected in the gaming community to be one of the strongest selling titles for the PlayStationÒ2 this holiday season, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City debuted at retail on October 29th. Published by Rockstar Games, developer Rockstar North has incorporated DTS Interactive specifically to enhance the gameplaying experience through sound so that players feel as though they are in the middle of the game. After hooking their console up to a DTS-capable surround sound system, players need only select DTS from the audio menu to experience the best audio effects available on the PlayStation2. "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a perfect game to incorporate DTS Interactive. Players will feel like they are surrounded by the city and its environs, which transforms the role-playing activity in the game," said Jon Kirchner, President and CEO of DTS.

Expanding the DTS commitment to current and next generation consumer electronics delivery devices, DTS Interactive allows gameplayers to enjoy the same high-quality DTS digital surround sound found in cinemas and DVD-Video / DVD-Audio titles.
