Communication is the key to online gaming. Now, audio communication takes a massive 3D step forward with the release of Dolby Axon. Ten Ton Hammer looks at the good and the bad of venturing into this 3D audio world with Dolby Axon.
Imagine standing in a room full of people at a party. Your ex walks into the room with her new beau. The buddy you're with wants to dis her, but doesn't want her to hear. So what does he do? He takes a step closer to you, turns his back to her and says quietly in your direction "tramp." Well, this is exactly the sort of thing you can do with Axon. Just drag your avatar closer, aim your audio pointer at the person you want to have hear you, and speak.
