• This week sony revealed the PULSE wireless stereo headset - Elite Edition, a nice new headset featuring BassImpact™ technology*.
    the interesting part is in the small writing.

    * BassImpact™ technology, 7.1 virtual surround sound & on-screen
    headset updates are only available on the PS3™ system and require system software version 4.20 or later.

    Though the oficial ps web page still states that the latest version as 4.11.

    When this new version will be released? Maybe in the next week after the E3 annoucements.

      Hopefully (if it does go down) it doesn't affect Rebug, or isn't anything a spoof can't fix!

      virtual surround...i wonder if some day that'll overtake real surround. it seems pretty popular, especially if you live in an apartment/condo.
      i just don't see it being too upgradeable, you can't just like buy another speaker, you have to buy a whole new headset.
      i digress, i'd like to try it and see how they are. i have a pretty decent speaker on my tv in my bedroom and a good setup in my main tv room.

      well.. in a sense it will. In each 0.1 firmware version incrementation, they change the pass phrase
      I jus hope, they havent changed the technique they used, so they can release a new. It's cool what is going on lately

      So i guess it's just a fix for the first headset's ''sidetone issue''

      Wasnt there a headset to be released a while ago, that needed 4.11 ?

      Or is that this same headset, just delayed?

      I think are different, the other was 7.1 too but LPCM format without surround
      And the shape is different, the other had like a big rectangles of plastic at the sides (ugly)... this new one looks a bit more "pro"

      The thing that i still dont get is what they mean when they says: "on-screen
      headset updates"
      There will be updates for the headset firmware ?... also displayed on screen (with new PS3 firmware messages)... and instalaltions managed by the ps3 (new PS3 firmware functions) ?

      150$ ? expensive but tipicall sadly
      More expensive thinking that there will be no games supporting this sound mode at release date (we will need to wait for games released after 4.20.... or patches for the old games)
      I wrote some notes in the wiki about how this new sound mode can be triggered, are mostly to dont forget it but probably will need to be erased later because will be no needed
      http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/PARAM.SFO#SOUND_FORMAT
      *at the bottom of SOUND_FORMAT section

      If anyone has something to add or discuss i think this is the better thread to do it but it seems we will need to wait to 4.20 and somebody to explain how it works in detail to understand it

      maybe cos it not out yet and from now till it does come out .sony could change there mind and make the fw 4.21 . so then if the the rumour was removed now then the site would be giving out wrong infomation as the fw could be 4.21 . it probley will be 4.20 but untill sony says 4.20 is coming , i would think the rumour tag would stay
