Video games get THX-certified
According to this story over at C|Net, THX will begin certifying video game audio. Five upcoming titles from Electronic Arts will be among the first games to be THX-certified, though it's unclear what level of audio quality or complexity will qualify a game for the certification. Personally, I'd like to see the certification demand a certain amount of positional audio content in addition to an option for 24-bit/196kHz audio quality. As eye candy continues to make games more visually stunning, high quality audio can go a long way towards making environments more immersive.
