Joystiq and MTV have posted some news about DLC enabled soundtracks for next years EA games. What do you think about this? Would you pay for the songs?

Quote:
"When I interviewed Schnur yesterday about the soundtrack for “Madden NFL 09“ he finally named a timeframe. “You’re going to see it in 2009,” he said. He said that by “Madden ‘10” gamers can expect some of the “broader-based” EA games (not just any music titles) to be able to “continually recommend” new music that can be downloaded to enhance a soundtrack."

Nope, I usually just stream music off my computer through the 360 as is, no need for in-game soundtracks nevermind DLC soundtracks for me

shhhhhh let ea think this is a good idea, then when it fails epically maybe they wont have enough money to re-up the exclusive license again.

Maybe, just maybe, a little bit more focus on your games would be a better idea?

The people working on this stuff, I'm sure, don't have much to do with the game play. Yours is a very easy statement to make but it's just not relevant.

I'm not interested in paying extra money to listen to a track in-game.

I beg to differ. EA like every company has a budget and every dime of that budget going to unwanted schemes like this is 1 less going towards actual game development.
We just had an EA rep in Game Informer talk about budget limitations.

Actually I would. There have been a few songs from Fifa that'd I'd love to have. They normally have some really cool, international tunes. Madden, some, just not as many.

Why would I buy music to play in a game if I can just use the XBOX Media Player to play it during the game?
