    Unless I'm mistaken, the PS2 will only play 5.1 sound in cutscenes etc, and not actually in the game itself.

    Can anyone correct me?

    well i have heard that before, this was common place on older games, but i thought some of the newer games did have some sort of digital surround sound 'in-game'.

    GTA: Vice City can be played with DTS surround sound.

    A shame that GTA: San Andreas only supports Dolby Pro Logic II.

    I think sony was caught off guard when microsoft released the Xbox with propper 5.1 for every game. Im sure the PS3 will compensate for any faults the PS2 has.
