Music to kick and punch to: EA reveals tracks for two games
Beats and rhymes featured in FIFA Street and Fight Night Round 2 include tracks from Fat Boy Slim, Fabolous, and Dizzee Rascal.
Electronic Arts has announced the latest collection of songs for two of its sports titles, FIFA Street and Fight Night Round 2. Each piece was selected by EA Trax, the game publisher's music-licensing initiative that works closely with music industry labels and artists.
FIFA Street is now available and takes soccer to the streets on the PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Xbox. The game represents the debut of soccer in EA Sports Big's Street series, and it features fancy footwork and over-the-top maneuvers. The soundtrack features a broad roster of electronic music, including Big Beat king Fat Boy Slim, junglists Roni Size and Peshay, and UK hip-hopper Dizzee Rascal.
Fight Night Round 2 is the slugging sequel to Fight Night 2004, and it will be released on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube on March 28. The boxing game's soundtrack is dominated by hip-hop and features classic rappers The Geto Boys, a collaboration between Fabolous and Pharell, and up-and-comers such as Czar-Nok.
