Sony has released the official PS3 All-in-one Surround system and that thing is looking very sexy and surprisingly affordable. The All-in-One system comes with only one speaker using 4 different sound fields and 2 modes for the optimal gaming experience. It works similar to Bose systems, but much cheaper, so you know it’s should be, chiquito, pero picoso–(little but Hot!) It’s still a 2.1 system, but it does use the S-Force technology which creates the equivalent of a surround sound system, supporting DTS, Dolby Digital, MPEG-2 AAC, Linear PCM (2ch).
The unit is available via Amazon PS3 Surround Sound System for $179.99
