Creative announce PS2 speakers

To go head to head with Videologic's PS2 line, of course

Videologic recently announced their DigiTheatre and DigiTheatre DTS speaker systems for the PlayStation 2, and apparently Creative now thinks that it's their time to bite back with the new PS2000 Dolby Digital surround system. Despite the overly complicated website and Star Wars-like design, they seem to be a well-endowed set of portables, and we're assured that they can reproduce sound to the same level of quality as their esteemed competitors in the PC range. Whether they match up to the DigiTheatre is debatable. It's no secret that we regard the DigiTheatre DTS as the pinnacle of speaker brilliance around here - DTS itself seems like a much richer standard too. The reason for this is largely that it's an elitist solution, so when DVD executives produce DTS soundtracks they have higher standards to maintain than with Dolby Digital. It'll be interesting to see how much of this the public picks up on. If you're very interested in the set, then do a reasonable deal on them for £150 here. The DigiTheatre DTS costs in the region of £399, but many would say that you get what you pay for, in both cases. Related Feature - DigiTheatre for the PS2
