Microsoft have announced that the Xbox One S will be adding 3D surround sound to it’s growing list of features.
The news was revealed at a press event in New York, where it was confirmed that Dolby Atmos and bitstreaming will be supported for games, movies and TV shows on the system. As well as this, it was revealed that DTS:X and Auro-3D will also become supported features.
It has been reported that a large number of audio visual receivers that have launched into the market support Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D, achievable through bitstreaming. With it now being possible to have one format that supports all three, Microsoft have seized the opportunity to further enhance the features of the Xbox One S by announcing the newly supported features.
Microsoft have made no secret of the advanced capabilities of the Xbox One S over competitors, including being the cheapest 4k Blu Ray player currently on the market.
Although there are no current games that support DTS:X or Auro-3D, a handful of titles such as Overwatch and Battlefront already support Dolby Atmos. However this could spur on devlopers to make use of other audio options for future games.
Do you think this is a good move for Microsoft? Be sure to sound off and let us know.
