Finally we're getting binaural audio in games! I've been seeing a lot of demos of it recently, and I found it astounding that no major player has bothered to implement it for gaming yet when it is so superior in immersion. I was even considering writing my own audio plugin for Unreal Engine just to try to get it to be used more, but thankfully it seems the pros are going to be handling it now.

I know exactly what you mean. Aureal was the BEST! Even the Vortex1 cards were great. Why did it take 20+ years to bring back something that already existed and was awesome?

From what I have heard, patents and licenses. Apparently Creative bought out Aureal, and then left the patents in a storage room somewhere. Hopefully that changes soon, though
