    Dolby Laboratories, Inc. have now confirmed that Wii will use Dolby Pro Logic II technology. Previously used in the GameCube console, Dolby Pro Logic II allows for two-channel stereo sound to be split in order to produce a pseudo surround-sound audio experience through a traditional five-speaker home theater setup.

    "The Wii console will break down the walls that separate gamers from everyone else," says Koji Kondo, manager of the Sound Group of Nintendo's Entertainment Analysis and Development Division. "Sound is a key part of this equation and because Wii supports Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound technology, we think everyone can have a great audio experience."

    Below is the full official press release statement:

    Glad they atleast garantee DD Pro Logic II, although I would have prefered true Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, this will probably be good enough.

    For me having Pro Logic II is good enough, but it would have been more reasuring (in a, for once wii has the top of the line, no one can argue sort of way) to have full Digital 5.1 or even 7.1

    PLII sucks, still NGC games have been totally cool without true surround but it would still be really nice to have it.

    Why would it have been so hard to add 7.1? What does PLII sound like compared to true surround?

    i suppose its saving us money, remember they want the average non-gaming family to buy this and an average family like that wont have a full surround sound system at least for games anyway.
