Atari 2600 anyone?

Before going any further I'll say straight up that the last gaming system I owned was an Atari 2600. And no, not one of those joysticks that you plug into your TV that has fifty games in it, I mean the actual Atari 2600 where you plugged cartridges into it to play like the one pictured above. Now that that's out of the way, there supposedly is a new first shooter game that will revolutionize the genre named Mirror's Edge.

As is becoming more common now a days, the music in the game is actual music composed and performed by real musicians. In this case, it's Swedish musician Lisa Miskovsky. In conjunction with the release of the game on the 11th is a remix EP featuring the song featured in the game, Still Alive, and five remixed versions. My favorite, the Teddybears mix, features a retro Go-Go's beat with the obligatory remix futuristic elements. Check it out below.
