will the PS4/PS4 games output Dolby digital 5.1?

5 replies 544 views Edited Jun 18, 2013
So the ps3 allowed players to set what kind of audio they wanted to output and which output to send it though. I have a TB headset that will only work via optical Dolby Digital 5.1. Will I be able to use it since the ps4 does have an optical out?

I don't know that there is confirmation of this, but, given that the vast majority of surround systems in the world are 5.1, I doubt you will have any problems.

depends on how the game is developed, but in all likelihood, yes

Since it's been confirmed by Astro and Turtle Beach that optical headphones will work for audio only for now, the PS4 does support Dolby 5.1. You wouldn't be able to get Dolby Headphone any other way which is the technology most of these surround sound headphones use.

I don't see why it wouldn't. The ps3 supports 7.1
PS1, PS2, 60 gig PS3, PS Vita, Ps4
