Platinum Wireless Headset: 3D Audio Dev Diary
With Sony gearing up for their biggest console year to date in video game releases, in-house studio Naughty Dog has revealed some news for the company’s first major peripheral of 2017. On January 12th, the Platinum Wireless Headset will be available for PlayStation 4 at the price of $159.99 USD.
For those of you who haven’t purchased a premium headset, the new accessory features 7.1 virtual surround sound, which will take advantage of 3D audio technology for titles like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and MLB The Show 17. During launch, Naughty Dog will be the first gaming company to have 3D audio featured in a console game with Uncharted 4 through a patch in a few weeks.
Along with noise-cancelling microphones, the Platinum Headset is also compatible with PSVR and mobile devices not named the iPhone 7, featuring a 3.5mm audio cable.
