With Madden 2009's soundtrack announcement, EA's Chief Music Executive Steve Schnur plans to have downloadable soundtracks available for non-music games. "You're going to see it in 2009," said Schnur in a MTV Multiplayer interview.
Schnur said that by Madden 2010, we can all expect a more "broader based" EA games (not just solely on music-based game titles) that is able to "continually recommend" a new tune that can be downloaded to improve the soundtrack. He mentions "recommend" as he is well aware that a majority of console players have already their own custom built playlist while playing games.
Electronic Arts, being the world's largest third-party publisher, has a knack for introducing new tunes to players through their game soundtracks so the DLC-enabled soundtracks would be a great approach. But, how much is this going to cost? Schnur never said any price tag, but we're expecting for each song to cost a buck or two....maybe nine.
