Well, I don't have the time anymore, and besides, there are sites like who do a much better job. Here you can find scans of just about every variation of every official Nine Inch Nails media release.

NIN- Doom3 Update

Good and Bad news...
Trent Reznor is no longer involved with ID software's Doom3 project. The length of time needed to complete the gaming project has taken longer than expected. Reznor is now working full-time on the next NIN record and word is that recording is going very well. Stay tuned!
To clarify... Trent's music/sound will not be available for release in the retail game or in any further game demos.

Minor Doom III Update

With the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) just around the corner, USA Today is running a story about the progress of Doom III. There really isn't anything NIN/Reznor mentioned, it is worth noting that apparently the Doom III team is on the home stretch:
''We really did expect to be much more done at this point, but we're in the home stretch,'' says Carmack, 33. ''Everything works. It's just a matter of tuning it and making it into a great game.''
Soon, soon...
