50 Cent is everywhere. If he's not delivering the latest rap hit, he's starring in his very own film and videogame, and from what here, even in the process of writing a children's book. Ok, so one of those listed projects is fabricated (a film? Puh-leeeease), but he most certainly is the central character of Vivendi's "gritty urban" action game, 50 Cent: Bulletproof. As if playing as the guy isn't enough, the entire soundtrack is being done Fitty's way, featuring 13 of his never-before-released tracks and remixes (with some exclusives even thrown in there), along with hits from his multi-platinum albums, Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Massacre.

"The exclusive tracks are as good as any song I've ever released," assures 50 Cent. "I wanted to give my fans something new as a thank you for always supporting me and G Unit and they won't be disappointed."

G-Unit president, executive producer, and all around cool guy, from what hear, Sha Money XL, will be contributing a good 90 minutes of original score to the game. Not to be left out is the G-Unit crew themselves, with Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo throwing down their respective tunes. And for (we) gamers who aren't so partial to 50's stuff... better luck next time?

"50 Cent: Bulletproof is the must-have video game this November," states a brazen Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, VU Games. "50 Cent's involvement yielded an impressive collection of exclusive new tracks, and access to a huge library of 50 Cent and G Unit music and music videos, allowing VU Games to offer one of the largest soundtracks ever in a video game."

Those aforementioned exclusive 50 Cent tracks include:

1. "Pimp Pt2"
2. "I'm A Rider"
3. "Maybe We Crazy"
4. "Don't Make Me"
5. "Grew Up"
6. "Hit Your Ass Up"
7. "Hole In Yo Back"
8. "I Run NY"
9. "I Warned You"
10. "Simply The Best"
11. "Southside G Unit"
12. "When You Hear That"
13. "Why Ask Why"

After all of that, we couldn't imagine you'd wan—-what's that? You want more 50? Well cripes, thank goodness VU Games is offering a pre-order offer for the game, treating gamers who fork over 5 bucks ahead of time with "No Fear, No Mercy Live," the 50 Cent live performance DVD that has hitherto never seen retail light. Who'd have thought so much buying incentive would be put into the "the must-have video game" of the month?

50 Cent: Bulletproof comes to town on November 22, with the PSP due out sometime in 2006. Keep it locked for more updates, suckas.
