NBA 2K10’s 10th anniversary soundtrack

2K sports just hit my inbox with a press release about the soundtrack for NBA 2K10, the 10th anniversary of the game. They released a promo a few weeks ago featuring Kobe Bryant’s signature move, to the audio of Kanye West’s “Amazing”. (Not that Kanye needs the money, but he should just right a song for each sports league to use as it’s anthem.)

Remember when video games had shitty soundtracks? (Maybe you think they still do?) I mean the same monotonous Casio groove that cost the game maker nothing and drove my Mom insane. Now a video game placement is better than radio play for some artists. The Game is releasing an exclusive track just for the game (and bet he’s getting paid too). Shit, 2K is even featuring likenesses of rappers, as you can read below in the press release excerpts.

2K Sports announced today the complete track list for this fall’s highly anticipated basketball video game, NBA® 2K10. The soundtrack will feature a cross- genre lineup of music by top artists such as Kanye West, MGMT, K’naan, Metric, Ratatat and more. The soundtrack also includes an original song from Grammy-nominated artist, The Game, titled “Champion.”

In NBA 2K10, some of the featured music artists will also make in-game cameos as playable characters, including Kanye West, The Game, Asher Roth, David Banner, Twista, Pitbull, and a variety of others. Each of the in-game artists will appear exclusively in the NBA 2K10’s Streetball mode.
