227w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Demon's Souls pre-order PS3 bonus has expanded, and now includes a full soundtrack.
To quote: As you may already know, we're offering fans who pre-order either version of the game (Standard or Deluxe, at participating retailers only) a full-color, 40-page art book featuring sketches, designs, and renders that wonderfully show off the game's gritty medieval aesthetic.
On its own, this is a pretty nice bonus (says the publisher offering it), considering it is being thrown in at no additional cost to the customer, but we've recently decided to take things a step further.
In addition to the art book, fans who pre-order will now ALSO receive the game's FULL soundtrack CD. That's right, we're going to throw 24 tracks (about 71 minutes) of music into the pre-order bonus as well. And if you've ever heard the game in action, you likely know that the music is haunting, atmospheric, sweeping, and orchestral.
Don't worry, people who have already pre-ordered: the music disc is secured on the back inside cover of the art book, so you won't miss out!
So, whether you reserve (at participating retailers) the Standard edition of the game, which would net you the game, art...

285w ago - The Metal Gear Solid series has consistently delivered some of the best original soundtrack material in games, due in large part to the orchestrations of Harry Gregson-Willams.
Those smart enough to have picked up the Limited Edition Bundle of MGS4 were treated to a bonus CD featuring 16 tracks from Gregson-Williams' killer score for the game.
For those not in the know, Harry Gregson-Williams is one of the most prolific composers of the past decade or so, with film credits ranging from "The Rock" to the upcoming "Wolverine" movie. Gregson-Williams is also unique since he is a film composer, who was sought out to lend his style to video games, starting with Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and continuing through this latest game. In fact, the only other game soundtrack to feature his music so far is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Now granted this is merely a sampler of the music from MGS4 and the Japanese got a full on two disc soundtrack release (nudge, nudge Konami), but the tracks here give you a "greatest hits" type feeling. The disc also features the game's "Love Theme" by Nobuko Toda with lyrics by Hideo Kojima and a cover of Ennio Morricone's "Here's to You" (originally from the 1971 film Sacco & Vanzetti) but the majority of the music is Harry...
