DJ Hero makes spinning tunes easy, but won't turn you into John Peel

DJ Hero invites would-be slipmat superstars to mix, spin and scratch tunes on a plastic turntable.

Beats travel around an on-screen turntable and you have to press the corresponding coloured “stream” button on the turntable at the right time in order to keep the mix going.

More advanced DJs can take advantage of the deck’s effects dial, crossfader and “score boosting” Euphoria button - according to a description of the game.

DJ Hero Renegade Edition

DJ Hero is compatible with the Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Aside from the basic £80 ($132/€82) DJ Hero offering, which includes the plastic deck, a pricier “Renegade Edition” of the game is also available that bundles a "premium" turntable, case, stand and tunes from the likes of rappers Jay-Z and Eminem. ®
