Well prologic isn't going to get you discrete surround. Prologic converts any stereo source into surround by using "natural cues" (as how dolby describes it) to make some sounds come from the rear channels.

This is OK for DVD's and music, especially if they are specifically mastered for prologic usage, but you aren't going to get anywhere near the same effect in games that you'd get from discrete audio channels.
