Activision spins out DJ Hero

Master the decks, with three coloured buttons

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Guitar Hero brought the guitar to gamers who can’t play the real thing and Rock Band did the same thing for drums. Now the franchise’s being expanded to let inept disc jockeys scratch and mix using three coloured buttons.

DJ Hero looks fun, but won't make you Pete Tong

DJ Hero uses a physical turntable and the game’s publisher, Activision, has promised it’ll “transform players into DJs who rule the club scene”.

Precious little else has been revealed about the game, but we do know that you’ll be able to create original mixes of popular songs and music from global DJs and artists.

It’s worth noting that because DJ Hero’s buttons are on the turntable, the title won’t actually help you learn how to spin vinyl – just like Guitar Hero won’t teach you chords.

DJ Hero’s set to premiere later this year. ®
