Nope. I sincerely doubt it will be anything earth-shattering, but. A tablet, an MP3 player, or another shithouse headset.

Although that hexagon in the middle does bring to mind the X-Fi's ring structure...

I saw it this morning, and a "great" guessing competition as to what it is.
Some of our answers they might not like (e.g. another crappy headset with a game logo on it, poor quality overpriced sound card with a Fatal1ty logo on it or a mp3 player that struggles to keep up with an Apple product).
I don't think I'll enter thier competition.

It's a fucking soundbar.

I have no idea why Creative keeps persisting with this shit.

Keep trying to be the Singaporean Sony, Creative. See how that works out for you.

Actually, that doesn't seem to be working out so well for the Japanese one, either, come to think of it.

They should be lobbying the fuck out of MS to put an X-Fi in the Xbox 720.

Wow, really, thats it?

Ha. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

lithos, as per usual in matters of pc audio, has the hot tip here- creative should have been going hard on 3D sound being the next 3D graphics and getting into next-gen consoles.

Portability, style, and of course "Big sound from a USB connection" !

It listens to you

Sound BlasterAxx's high-quality dual-microphoneš array functions as its ears. It accurately picks up your voice, and together with the applied technology, intelligently adjusts the audio.
Yay!!! The future is here

Sweet, they got some out-of-work Aussie actor to do an awkward "Seriously, this is what I do, and I totally needed this" ad .

Don't worry mate. I'm sure the West End'll call back on that Axx soon.

And just for Catalyst:

Wait, what? I don't even, but? Huh?

Thank christ i don't have sound on my work pc.

I'll go an extended rant about this later, but since when the fuck have "Creative" made lifestyle products? And why does the SoundBlaster name have value in this segment?
