DJ Hero - Less Guitar Wanking, More Sub CrankingWell, they did it, they finally did it. Activision is bringing the DJ game out of the arcades and into your living room with the impending release of DJ Hero. Now, don't let the title fool you, I'm a guitar guy first and foremost. I love it to listen to it, I love to play it, I just love the guitar. That said, I will admit that the idea of letting gamers the world over work their scritchy-scratchies over their weedly-weedlies is a genius move.
Guitar Hero, for all it's greatness, has been and always will be rock-centric, and that leaves a huge consumer base untapped. With DJ Hero set for release on October 27th, hip-hop and electronic music fans will finally have a game that's all their's. No more playing and replaying the thrown bone of a Beastie Boys track on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, as DJ Hero allows players to scratch and fade all over their favourite pop, urban, and electronic songs.
Artists like Grandmaster Flash and the late DJ AM will be making appearances in the game; and the songs of Public Enemy, Tears For Fears, Gwen Stefani, and even Benny Benassi will be there to work your magic on. With the new turntable controller being included, DJ Hero is poised to try and take over the gaming world one cut at a time.
