Anyone that knows me knows that i despise music games (Namely Guitar/Band titles), simply because they have become far too mainstream. On the other side of the coin however i do love me some Singstar and cant wait to get my hands on DJ Hero. Working in a Hip-hop station for a couple years, one picks up certain things, things like how to suck at mixing, and later on how to not suck so much. Alot of details have been released already for HERO but alot more are still on the way. The latest video demonstrates how to play the actual game, enjoy.
So far we know the likenesses of DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, DJ AM and Grandmaster Flash will grace the game.
and will include tracks from
Bell Biv DeVoe
Black Eyed Peas
Boogie Down Productions
Eric B & Rakim
DJ Jazzy Jeff
LL Cool J
Tears for Fears
The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra
with many more sure to come, not to mention the inevitable DLC.
But then comes the hard part, price point, $120 for the standard edition and $200 for the badass Renegade edition. At a point like this we begin to question just how interested we really are in new game that requires the purchase of a peripheral (that will likely be outdated within the year). Unless of course some nice developer wants to send me a review version???? if you do, I’ll take the Renegade Edition
DJ HERO is scheduled to hit the PS3 XBOX360 and Wii this Oct.
