Default Technically what is the best sound option for a PS3 game?

On Uncharted 2 I noticed it had the following in the audio options:

Dolby Digital
Dolby Pro Logic II
DTS
5.1 PCM
7.1 PCM

Technically, which is the best if your receiver is capable of lossless sound for Blu-Ray movies?

1. 7.1 or 5.1 PCM
2. DTS or DD
3. Pro Logic II

The 7.1 or 5.1 PCM is deff. the best, uncompressed audio!

Thanks guys.

Also I have one (actually two) more n00b questions about PS3 games:

- Does every single PS3 game come with uncompressed PCM audio?

- No PS3 game comes with DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD right? I assume there would be no need for it to, unlike a Blu-Ray movie.

And then just google each individual codec to learn more. Dolby Digital and DTS are just ways to "ZIP" PCM sound files into a neat, smaller packet. Before you get sound to your speakers, it must be "UNZIPPED" back to PCM. It sounds more inefficient, but its not. Which is why PCM is becomming more and more rare, especially in the movie world.

Do not know the answer to this... have yet to see a game that uses TrueHD or DTS-MA though
