There's no denying that the upcoming hip-hop brawler from EA Chicago, Def Jam: Icon, looks practically unlike anything else out there. Where else can you take control of rap stars like Big Boi, Ludacris, and The Game and duke it out in amazing stylized environments that pump and shake with every beat emitting from the game's cutting-edge soundtrack (or one of your own choosing)? Truly, this one's got style to spare. The game (which we recently previewed) is due for release in just a few weeks for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but up until now, we didn't know about one of the key components of the Xbox 360 version of the game: the Xbox Live achievements. We recently got the full list from the folks at EA Chicago, which we've reprinted below. The 34 achievements in the game include a mix of special move requirements, online wins, and several built around the single-player "build a label" mode. Check them out:
