Reuters are reporting that a deal between Electronic Arts and MTV will make the Madden 09 soundtrack available in the weekly downloadable content update for Rock Band.


The nugget of info was couched in a broader report about the run-up to the 20th anniversary of the seminal sports simulation. Huge hat tip to reader Max for spotting and pointing it out to us.

Quoth Reuters:

Under the deal, "Rock Band" will feature music from the "Madden 09" soundtrack in its weekly downloadable songs update, a handful at a time, over several weeks, with each song carrying the "Madden" brand. Additionally, each soundtrack song will be available for sale via iTunes as part of a special "Madden" playlist.

@Hamsnibit: Yeah, god forbid EA try out a way of getting Madden fans to cross over to RB.

@Neo Deus: Because EA has their hands in both Madden and Rock Band...

If I'm EA/HMX, I'm looking at a way to offer these songs at a discount, or tie a few "freebies" in with people who buy Madden '09 (your first taste is free after all)
