Sequels are nothing unusual to most gamers, but Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc., is throwing something new into the mix with the release of God of War II.
A battle of the bands titled God of Noise will be held for an upcoming game.
Until November 8, undiscovered musicians have the opportunity to submit a song of their own for judging. The winning band or musicians will get to see their song in the upcoming God of War II, set to be release early 2007 for the Playstation 2.
The competition consists of three stages, with each designed to narrow down the choices into a top ten. The top ten will then be voted by fans and the band with the highest number of votes will have their song feature in God of War II.
Band and musicians can read the official rules and enter the contest through MySpace.com, a well-known blogging and networking website. The site also features video clips , screenshots and concept art for God of War II.
"All Song submissions will be judged on the following criteria: originality 40%; musical compatibility with the feel/tone of the game 30%; creative use of game score samples 30%," according to Sony's contest rules.
