CREATIVE LAUNCHES SOUND BLASTER® X-FI™ GO! THE USB STICK SOUND CARD FOR ULTRA-REALISTIC GAMING WITH HEADPHONE SURROUND

Acclaimed X-Fi™ technology delivers compelling audio performance for gaming on the move. Now available in Europe.

Creative, a worldwide leader in digital entertainment products, announces the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi™ Go! Approved by the World Championship Gaming Series™ and tested by world-renowned gamer Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty' Wendel, the USB-powered Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! uses acclaimed X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity™ audio technology to enable users to experience ultra-realistic gaming with surround sound over headphones.

Sporting a sleek and distinctive black finish, the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! is incredibly lightweight (less than 20g) and compact. Its 1GB of built-in flash memory stores all the software needed for fast and easy installation on any notebook or desktop PC without requiring a CD. It also incorporates Read/Write Protection which prevents important files being accidentally deleted, so users can save their custom gaming profiles, plug-ins, add-ons and any other essential files.

The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! harnesses the power and performance of Creative's award-winning X-Fi audio technology, which enables users to experience ultra-realistic sound effects and 3D surround that totally immerse them in the game. X-Fi technology features X-Fi Crystalizer and X-Fi CMSS-3D. X-Fi Crystalizer intelligently revitalises and restores details lost during the compression of MP3 music or movie soundtracks, enabling users to hear everything in crystal clarity. X-Fi CMSS-3D expands stereo games, MP3s and digital movies into virtual surround over speakers or headphones. The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! also supports Creative EAX® Advanced HD™ 4.0 which provides a more realistic gaming experience. Over 400 game titles currently use Creative EAX technology to improve their sound effects.

The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! comes bundled with Creative ALchemy software. This restores surround sound under Windows Vista so that users can enjoy the same great gaming experience they had under Windows XP. The latest VoiceFX technology provides additional fun, allowing users to select over 18 different voice effects for their avatars during online games, or to amuse their friends during voice chats.
