'Guitar Hero' makers working on 'DJ Hero'

Post by Baz on Thu Sep 18, 2008 2:54 am




The makers of the 'Guitar Hero' computer games are working on a new title, 'DJ Hero'.

FreeStyleGames, a company owned by Activision, is currently developing the DJ simulation title, reports gaming blog Kotaku.com.

According to the blog, the game is set to be released in summer 2009. It will involve using a DJ deck-style controller with sampling buttons and a cross-fader.

'DJ Hero' is set to include a number of mash-ups, with songs by 50 Cent, Beastie Boys, Beyonce and Jimi Hendrix all in the running for inclusion, pending licensing rights being granted.

Guitar Hero DJ spin-off due next year?

Post by Baz on Mon Dec 08, 2008 6:09 am



A DJ based spin-off of the phenomenally successful Guitar Hero game is due out next year, according to reports.

The DJ Hero spin-off has long been rumoured to be in the works by developers Activision, but the cat has apparently been let out of the bag by Dutch techno DJ TiŽsto.

A newsletter apparently from the DJ was sent out to fans, saying: "We are proud to announce that TiŽsto has teamed up with the game developer Activision and their latest DJ project. I am very excited about this! I think this is a great way to introduce people to DJing.

"Maybe they realise it's not as easy as they think. I am sure this brings new fans to the scene, dance music is not far from hip-hop for example. Hopefully the music I have composed appeals to all kinds of fans!"

However, the DJs reps are questioning the validity of the statement and say that while he has been in talks with developers, his involvement has not been finalised.

Guitar Hero has been a global phenomenon, selling 23million units worldwide. It is now in its fourth incarnation, Guitar Hero: World Tour.
