Since Chac brought it up with his DMC4 review I wanted to compile a list of what games contain it. So far I know of two.

PS3 games with PCM(All titles listed are 7.1 unless otherwise noted. To avoid any confusion "THX stamp" just means THX certified):

1942 Joint Strike(PSN)-un4gvn2
All Pro Football 2K8-un4gvn2
Bionic Commando-un4gvn2
Black Site Area 51-un4gvn2
Blazing Angels-un4gvn2
Calling All Cars(PSN)
Cash Guns Chaos(PSN)-un4gvn2
Clive Barker's Jericho-un4gvn2
College Hoops 2K8-un4gvn2
Conflict: Denied Ops-un4gvn2
Dark Sector-un4gvn2
Dirt
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars-un4gvn2
Folklore
Genji(confirmed, got info from NeoGAF thread which had info from Sony board thread)(user Craiji)
Go Sports Skiing(PSN)-un4gvn2
Go Sports Skydiving(PSN)-un4gvn2
Grid-un4gvn2
GT5 Prologue-InfamousM
Hail to the Chimp-un4gvn2
Haze-un4gvn2
Heavenly Sword
Hot Shots Golf: Out Of Bounds-Craiji
Iron Man-un4gvn2
Kane and Lynch: Dead Men-un4gvn2
Lair(THX stamp, thanks to un4gvn2 here)
MLB 08 The Show(THX stamp)
MLB 2K7-un4gvn2
MLB 2K8-un4gvn2
Monster Madness: Grave Danger-un4gvn2
Motorstorm
NBA 08(THX stamp)-un4gvn2
NBA 2K8-un4gvn2
NHL 2K8-un4gvn2
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2(5.1 PCM)
Nucleus(PSN)-(Iceman-X
Oblivion-Craiji
Overlord: Raising Hell-un4gvn2
Pain(PSN)(THX stamp)-Infamous X
Ratchet and Clank
Resistance (THX stamp)
Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy(THX stamp)-un4gvn2
Sega Rally Revo-un4gvn2
Siren: Blood Curse-Craiji
Snakeball-un4gvn2
Super Stardust HD-alisound
The Darkness-un4gvn2
Timeshift-un4gvn2
Top Spin 3-nnyanks
Turok-un4gvn2
Uncharted
Virtua Fighter 5-(Iceman-X
Virtua Tennis 3-un4gvn2
Wall-E(-un4gvn2
Warhawk (THX stamp)

Feel free to list others and I'll add them to the list. Any games with minimal differences between the PS3 and 360 versions that have this as the difference I will buy the PS3 version as I want Lossless audio if it's a choice between one with and one without. It's a big buying factor for me.
edit(1/22/2009): Any new listings with credit not given to any specific person, credit is given to both NeoGAF and the Sony boards.
edit(11/04/2009): Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 has been added. This was added after I checked the back of the box and on the audio it specifically lists "5.1 Linear PCM".

I believe Lair has PCM as well...

this is a good topic, though. Well... for the caviar-eating crowd with fancy HT setups.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

DMC4 does not have PCM audio. This has been confirmed on a few threads at AVS as well as on my system.

Resistance, Lair, Uncharted and Ratchet all have 7.1 PCM and each sound amazing.

There are a couple of us on CAG with PS3's hooked up to current HDMI receivers. Perhaps a few of us should create a master thread.

I believe Dirt has 7.1 PCM as well. (I think that was one of the upgrades over the 360 version)

How can one tell if uncompressed audio is supported? Is it on the box somewhere?

Rarely does a game tell you.
I just go by what my receiver tells me.

Dallow could they also use Dolby TrueHD if space was an issue or would the game graphic's and so on be too taxing in addition to the decoding of a Lossless codec as well.

That's something I've thought about but I'm not sure if it's possible.

Since TrueHD is like a zipped version of the PCM audio, I don't know if it can unzip all the dynamic sound effects that games make on the fly.

With standard DD and DTS, it was just a matter of the sound being recorded at a lower quality and played back, but there's an extra process with TrueHD.

Not sure though.

Ok thanks for the info. We need to just support and demand this wholeheartidly. It was enough bullshit Sony and others dragged their heels and only the XBox gave us real 5.1 in the last generation. We need to make sure most all PS3 titles include it and make a big enough deal that Nintendo and MS will be SHAMED into doing this the next generation.
Frankly I'm FED UP as a gamer being one step behind the movie industry in this type of stuff.

Hell yes!

My friends can't though. Then again they don't listen to my setup every single day like I do. Most of them don't have a developed ear when it comes to audio.

Even if you've got an untrained ear, I still think there's a noticeable difference between the two. A lot of it has to do with the speakers you're pumpin' dat sound outta, of course.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Bump. Any word if Condemned 2 has PCM or not? Also I was wondering if "F.E.A.R." included it when released.

Why not? If they're equal, with the PS3 version having Lossless, that's enough for me to buy the PS3 version. The achievement in NO WAY for me trumps Lossless period.

MGS4 is a PS3 exclusive. And i somehow doubt it has PCM, the opening of MGS Online has a large Dolby Digital logo =(

Uncharted does.

I don't know about MGS4 though. :(
Every game features the Dolby Digital logo, but it's huge on that game.

What type of disc is the demo even on? Let's not just assume because the online beta has it that's all we'll get for it.

My Onkyo 605 tells me that GTAIV has 5.1 PCM. I don't know if it is real PCM, or dumped Dolby Digital 5.1 into 5.1 PCM, though.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D
