Activision Confirms DJ Hero, Turntable Controller

Activision this morning announced that the company will be releasing DJ Hero, along with Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5, in the Fall.

DJ Hero is said to include "diverse music genres including hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance" as well as the nifty turntable controller below. Endeavoring to "transform players into DJs who rule the club scene by creating original mixes of popular songs and music from the world's most exciting artists and DJs," DJ Hero continues Activision’s Guitar Hero franchise and helping to flog the not-dead-but-definitely-tired horse is the announcement of Guitar Hero Van Halen and Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits.

So what’s the verdict? Is anyone interested in trying DJ Hero? I’d like to try it, but there’s no way I’m buying this thing, I’m happy with Guitar Hero. I’ll probably try and convince one of my friends to get it (a much younger relative would do the trick, too) and then mooch a few minutes of play just to get it out of my system.

No word on pricing yet but we’ll let you know once we get wind of how much Activision announces something.
