I'm not a big gamer, but if you are then you probably know that Mirror Edge is one of the most anticipated new video games of the year. Produced by EA, the game is a so-called "first person action adventure game" that is set in "conformist dystopia" in which communication is heavily monitored by a totalitarian regime. A network of runners, including the main character, Faith, are used to transmit messages while evading government surveillance. Very intriguing indeed.

Video games have been an extremely successful way for record labels to promote new music. Whereas the sales of music is shrinking and the popularity of video games is continuing to grow, video games placement is a great way for music marketers to connect to their target audience in a non-obtrusive way. The Economist recently wrote about teenagers' renewed interest in Aerosmith after the rock group was featured in their own Guitar Video game.

Mirror's Edge will be accompanied by the release of a remix collection for the game's provocative title track, "Still Alive."  With vocals from one of Sweden's leading voices, Lisa Miskovsky, the remix EP features remixes from Junkie XL, Benny Banassi, Paul van Dyk, Armand van Helden and Teddybears. The remix EP will be available on November 11.

Definitely an interesting game with a concept that pretty much is a big FU to every first person shooter out there. They music is fantastic. It fits the atmosphere of the game perfectly.
I could write so much about how important music can be to a videogame.
Final Fantasy.
Nuff' Said.

"a concept that pretty much is a big FU to every first person shooter out there"
What?

This is a wonderful track though. I'm glad that interesting stuff is finally getting in games.

To add to music in games - atmosphere pieces can do it for you. See Half-Life 2 for reference.
