We learn that 3D audio will be available at launch via the new Pulse 3D wireless headset, on top of compatible headphones both via USB and the  DualSense wireless controller’s 3.5mm headset jack.

We also get a partial list of games that will feature 3D sound: Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Astro’s Playroom, Gran Turismo 7, Returnal, Destruction AllStars, Demon’s Souls, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Horizon Forbidden West, Resident Evil Village and “many others.”

Of course, not all of them are launch games.

Speaking of something else not coming at launch, we learn that Sony is working on TV speaker virtual surround, but it won’t be available at the launch of the console.

Incidentally, you can catch a lot of PS5 gameplay showcased last weekend by a large group of local YouTubers.

If you’re interested in the PS5, recently Sony announced both prices and release dates.

The standard edition will cost $499.99, €499.99, £449.99, or 49,980 yen while the Digital Edition is priced at $399.99, €399.99, £359.99, or 39,980 yen.

The first release date will be on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.

Everyone else will have to wait a little more: the console will launch in Europe and in the rest of the world on November 19.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
