The first one million copies of P.O.D.’s eagerly awaited new album, “PAYABLE ON DEATH,” will include an exclusive bonus PlayStation(R)2 DVD from SCEA, making good on an October 1 announcement with the group’s label, Atlantic Records, to provide P.O.D. fans and gaming enthusiasts with an unprecedented added value. The bonus DVD – playable only on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system – will contain a custom videogame track from the critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 music game title, Amplitude, featuring a newly recorded, non-album P.O.D. track, “Space.” The two-disc package will carry a suggested list price of only $19.98.
The release of the two-disc package demonstrates a groundbreaking, cross-media approach for the gaming and recording industries to deliver greater value to consumers.
Developed by Harmonix Music Systems, Amplitude takes advantage of players’ videogame/rhythm skills and allows them to recreate a song via the PlayStation 2 DUALSHOCK(R)2 analog controller – players can build and remix the song’s individual tracks, in effect to “jam” with the music, regardless of musical ability.
The full version of Amplitude is currently available for PlayStation 2 nationwide and features more than 25 tracks from various artists across all music genres for players to interact with both in offline and online gameplay. This game has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
