(NASDAQ:ERTS) announced today that Guns N’ Roses’ high-intensity rock anthem Paradise City headlines the playlist in Burnout Paradise for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 videogame system. The music propels the game into high speed action with forty major artists including Alice in Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden, Twisted Sister, Jimmy Eat World and N.E.R.D., as well as rising stars Airbourne, Jupiter One and Junkie XL who have been signed to EA’s own music label, Artwerk.
