You won’t believe the music in SSX

Quartertothree: When I played Saints Row 3, I eventually set up a custom mix tape consisting of my favorite songs from the various radio stations. Thanks, game, for letting me assemble from your licensed music my own personalized soundtrack!

So after my first few runs in SSX, unimpressed by the random tracks that played — Who knew Foster The People has a song that isn’t Pumped Up Kicks? — I went into the custom music option to pick which tracks would accompany me down SSX’s glorious mountains. And what a surprise to discover they’d licensed Daft Punk’s soundtrack to Tron. What a great idea. That’s perfect snowboarding music! (PS3, SSX, Wii, Xbox 360)

Um... SSX has always had the best soundtracks. I'm not sure why anyone would be surprised. It introduced me to imarobot, The Caesars, and MIA. It just proves, once again, that snowboarders have fantastic taste in music.

Hate the music. Would love for them to chuck metal in there.

nothing beats streaming internet radio through a game

i am surprised EA (or someone else big) don't use an EA soundtrack that streams over live. A service that could be used for every game by that publisher, a database full of songs. they would probably ruin it by charging for it or filling it up with ads. it has potential though to add value to the brand even if it is free.
