DJ Hero stand-alone controllers hit US store shelves

Posted in Activision by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2010

I like me some music games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Rap and dance music isn’t my genre of choice so I have not had the need to play DJ Hero yet. If you like DJ Hero Activision has announced that stand-alone DJ controllers are finally available in the US.

The controllers are on Amazon now for about $60. When you add a second controller, you can have head-to-head DJ battles against friends. Activision is also talking up a couple more multiplayer modes that are pretty cool.

This is how DJ HERO would have looked on Nintendo’s Game & Watch.

dj-hero-renegade-600Today Activision announced the DJ Hero Renegade Edition bundle. The bundle includes a peripheral that’s darker with less silver and some premium metal controls and finish. The package also comes with a hardshell carrying case that doubles as a stand and a Jay-Z / Eminem two-CD collection with unreleased tracks and a collectible case designed by Shepard Fairey.

We don’t have anything on price, but the standard edition has a rumored $120 price tag, so you can expect to pay upwards of that.

DJ Hero gets a $120 price tag, October 27th ship date

DJ Hero, Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5 announcedOnline retailers Gamestop and Amazon have both independently put up listings for the DJ Hero / turntable bundle and both list the same October 27th ship date with a price of $119.99 for Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The PS2 version will cost you either the same or $20 cheaper, depending on which site you go with.

Nothing official from Activision though. We’re thinking the prices and date are accurate. But until Activision confirms it, nobody knows for sure. Looks like four more months until you can get your DJ fix.

Jay-Z and Eminem provide music for DJ Hero game

scratch-ultimate-sbGuitar Hero and Rock Band are a couple of popular music video games, but for some audiophiles rock music isn’t what they want. Some music fans are into hip-hop, electronic and other genres where DJs spin the tunes rather than rock bands jamming live.

Activision is set to add DJ Hero to its music game line up. We have already seen an aftermarket DJ Hero turntable from Numark and Activison has now announced a special edition DJ Hero game is coming.

DJ Hero, Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5 announcedActivision just went bonkers and confirmed a whole bunch of heroes. The most notable is the long-awaited DJ Hero. We wondered what a DJ Hero controller would look like, and we finally get to see in the image above. How you play the thing is a mystery to us.

Music genres include “hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance,” and the game will let users create “original mixes”. Activision is also putting the finishing touches on a family-friendly Band Hero game, as well as a Guitar Hero 5 followup.

First details of DJ Hero game

First Details Of DJ Hero GameLiving room DJ’s can now also be poseurs, joining the ranks of plastic guitar Gods everywhere. After two years of development, the “controller” for the new game is basically a “simplified DJ deck” as you might expect. You get a platter for scratching; sampling buttons; cross fader; and a sound effects dial which is the equivalent of the whammy bar in Guitar Hero.

It should hit shelves this summer and word is it will include the ability to use Guitar Hero guitars for versus mode face-offs. No flowing musical notes gliding down a guitar neck here. Instead, DJ Hero will flow the music down and around a virtual record in a half arc. Either left top to middle bottom if you are left handed, or right top to middle bottom if you are right handed. Wannabe DJ’s I’m sure have been waiting for this, as for the rest of you, do you guys have any room left in your home after buying all the other games?
