Beastie Boys hit new videogame soundtrack

The Beastie Boys will be seen and heard in the forthcoming PlayStation2/Game Cube/Xbox title “NBA Street V3,” due Feb. 9 from Electronic Arts. Digitized versions of each member of the veteran rap trio will appear as unlockable characters in the game, meaning they are added into the playing options as bonuses once gamers have achieved certain goals. Mike D, MCA and Adrock sport New York Knicks gear in the game and each has individual that affect game play depending on the mode. The in-game soundtrack will sport “An Open Letter to NYC,” a cut from the Beasties’ latest studio set, “To the 5 Boroughs” (Capitol). They headline a track listing that includes cuts from De La Soul, House Of Pain, MC Lyte, Elephant Man and Guerilla Black.
