You know it's a multimedia world when a games company has a music executive. Steve Schnur, worldwide exec of music and marketing at Electronic Arts, announced today that music from EA's games are now available for download from their EA Trax site, or from iTunes.
From my casual browsing of the site, the selection appears to be entirely made up of the songs heard in different games -- for instance, the NFL 2005 selection touts music from Franz Ferdinand, Burning Brides, Sugarcult, The Network and Ash. Many of these songs are exclusive recordings or remixes, but if you were hoping to get the score to your favorite game, you might be out of luck.
Schur promises that "if it's in the game, it's now available for fans to own," but that doesn't appear to be completely retroactive. After going through the list of game titles, it appears that SSX 2 isn't on the list. Looks like I'll still have to wait before I can get that Rahzel cut.
