Creative teases us with new Sound Blaster reveal

When was the last time you got excited by a PC sound card announcement? Sure, some of us get pumped for a new processor, or a new graphic chip, but sound on the PC has become something of an also-ran in terms of its rung on the PC technology ladder.

Today, Creative wants all of us to get excited about its next Sound Blaster product. That includes launching a new teaser page that promises something with the word "Axx". We don't think that's a real word, but at least it sounds interesting.

We will have to wait until May 30th to find out what all of this "Axx" stuff is supposed to mean. However, Creative is giving the community a chance to guess exactly what this new Sound Blaster product is suppose to be. Creative says that the "most accurate and most creative answers will be the first to axx-perience the new Sound Blaster."

The first Sound Blaster PC sound card was released back in 1989. Creative hasn't released a new Sound Blaster product line in a little while; the last was in September 2011 when the company launched the Sound Blaster Recon3D family of products.
