Yesterday Sony quietly - very quietly - revealed a brand new console accessory, one that hopes to bring "surround sound" to the PS3-owning masses.

It's called the Surround Sound System for the PlayStation 3. Catchy, we know. Priced at $199, and available in the Fall, it appears to be a standard "project single-speaker sound into a room to make it sound 3D" piece of kit with a PlayStation logo on it, which works by simply plugging it into the back of a PS3.

I'm yet to see one of these things actually work the way it's supposed to, but hey, Sony fanboys who can't get enough of PlayStation-branded accessories, if you feel like trying, write in to us, tell us how it all goes.
