Snowboarding is more than a sport, it's a lifestyle. Amped 3 features the most authentic snowboarding gameplay with perfected controls and the elements of a true extreme sports sandbox. Throw down stylish tricks, white-knuckle sled rides, and experience death-defying crashes as you earn your world ranking online. Tweak your tricks, gear, runs, music, and special effects while saving your crew in this twisted story that defines Amped 3.

Consumers will be able to log on to the official Amped 3 Web site (, listen to the tracks featured in Amped 3, and vote for their favorites. The top 20 tracks will then be featured on the Amped 3 Soundtrack CD, to be available as a pre-sell item at major retailers and on the 2K Sports' 'Bounce Tour'. From those 20 tracks, voters will "Make the Band" by selecting their favorite. The band that receives the highest average fan rating will win a coveted opening slot at the well-revered and influential music festival, South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and $10,000.

Available for the Xbox 360, Amped 3 gives snow junkies their fix with an all-new physics engine, perfected controls for all the hottest tricks, and the most authentic riding experience at some the world's greatest winter resorts.
