Attendees will dive deep into the audio design pipeline (Project Acoustics) and the relationship to dedicated hardware-acceleration on newer generation Xbox consoles.
The Xbox One currently supports Dolby Atmos and Dolby Atmos Headphones, it doesn’t sport a dedicated chipset for audio. Sony's Mark Cerny has confirmed a 3D audio for the PS5.

PS5 will support 3D audio and will make you feel more immersed in the game as sounds come at you from above, from behind, and from the side.
