Eidos, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced details of the new school tracks featured in its upcoming rap game Get On Da Mic. The game is the first true music performance game where players use a microphone or headset to rap along to songs by their favorite MC's. Get on Da Mic is in development by Artificial Mind & Movement (A2M) in partnership with Highway 1 Productions. Get on Da Mic boasts a robust soundtrack including 40 tracks originally made popular by the hottest names in hip hop. Get On Da Mic will be available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in North America on October 5th and in Europe in late October.

"Get On Da Mic is the first pure rap game to feature both songs from old school legends and tracks from today's hottest artists.
