Beats Per Millennium - DJ Hero on the way!

DJ Hero on the way!

For a while now Guitar Hero has been sweeping the nation, proving that Radiohead was right, everyone can indeed play guitar…at least if it is connected to a video screen and not quite shaped like a guitar. Now, the game’s makers, Activision, have announced plans for a product to appeal to hip hop fans.

Developers FreeStyle Games are hard at work in efforts to have DJ Hero on the shelves by next summer. The game’s set up will feature a simplified DJ deck with three buttons for sampling and a cross fader.

Of course, this would not truly be a hip hop product if delays were not expected. Activision faces a long road of getting all the samples used in the game cleared. But hey…at least it will be out before Detox.
