Xbox did this with Windows sonic surround sound before adding Dolby Atmos to the Xbox. Windows sonic is actually good and reviews back that up. I wouldn't be too worried, looks like PlayStation are trying something similar? Sony won't mess up sound, it's partly what made the company it is today. Plus like Xbox they can always add Dolby at a later date. I'm no a fanboy I have the Xbox. But I'd trust Sony when it comes to this.

Is it really any surprise.
They’ve never really slowed mainstream Bluetooth headset to work with the PS4. A USB steering controller would work with PS4 and PC but not Xbox. Sure there is many other peripheral issues.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they introduce a paid for upgrade to get ATMOS functionality.

I don’t trust any of them, not just Sony. They will try everything to get extra money. You can’t blame them that’s what there in it for...

Not really surprising with it's limited bandwidth
No issue with Xbox removing the optical out.
I use the HDMI so I'd have the HDMI cable running to my Dolby Atmos soundbar which is better as you only have the one cable for both audio and video and of course more bandwidth

If you had read my whole comment, I said that...

kudos for trying to state the obvious..
I play games with headphones, i play media through my android TV (or PC) and Av receiver. Couldn't care less if PS5 has Atmos and i'm sure neither will 95% of gamers.
