MWSF: SoundBlaster Live Not Shipping, Yet
3:14 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

We've received word from the show floor that Creative Labs is showing, but not shipping, their Sound Blaster Live! cards for the Mac OS. Supposedly some last-minute bugs in the software that ships with this card were discovered, and this will delay the actual ship date by several weeks.


Creative Labs assured us that the card is "95% there," with printed boxes, manuals and etc. ready to go. One item that may be of interest to gamers: The card ships with a full version of Aspyr's Deus Ex, presumably supporting EAX (positional audio).


The card itself is available for pre-order at the expo for $99.00, and will be in stores for $149.00 in the next month or so. System specs for the cards include a PowerMac 7200 or later, 64 MB of RAM and Mac OS 8.6. For more details on this amazing audio device, be sure and check out our preview.
