Home cinema-equipped gamers will be happy to learn that Dolby has licensed surround sound for both the PS3 and the Wii. But while Sony's Blu-Ray-enabled PS3 will sport up to 7.1 channels for BD movies or 5.1 surround sound for games, Nintendo's gone for the cheaper Dolby Pro Logic II. So while the sound will still come at you from all angles, it'll be only standard stereo that's going to the speakers.Will it bother thrifty Wii fans who'll be playing on their machines a full four months before the pricey PS3 gets its UK launch? We think not.
