EA’S NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED SOUNDTRACK PUMPS UP THE ADRENALINE AS GAMERS SET OUT TO BECOME THE MOST NOTORIOUS STREET RACER

Chertsey, UK October 13, 2005 - Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed an in-game soundtrack that will get gamers' hearts thumping as they race their way to the top of the Blacklist to become the most notorious street racer in Need for SpeedTM Most Wanted. In addition to hot tracks from T.I. Presents The P$C, Jamiroquai, and Disturbed, composer Paul Linford will bring a Hollywood-caliber score to the game. Linford has composed music for such popular films as Bad Boys II, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Coach Carter, Enemy of the State and Con Air among other blockbusters.
