Spanning 11 platforms and hitting more than 7.1 million users as of last March, EA's Madden 07 garnered a substantial amount of playtime for the up-and-coming artists who landed a slot on its soundtrack. EA released the details on its Madden NFL 08 soundtrack this week, and as in past years, the collection includes a variety of established pop, rock, and hip-hop artists, as well as a few newcomers.
Headlining the show are platinum-record-selling artists such as The Bravery, Swizz Beats, Sum 41, Timbaland featuring Justin Timberlake, The Hives, and Yellowcard. Airbourne, Datarock, Operator, and Enter Shikari will make their big-time debut, hoping to seed an ascent to superstardom. Lending a track to the proceedings for the first time will also be rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, with "I Don't Wanna Stop."
Arriving this August, Madden NFL 08 will be available on the Xbox 360, Xbox, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Wii, PC, PlayStation Portable, mobile handsets, and Mac.
