First Glance at the DJ Hero Controller

We’ve rocked it out with our Guitar Hero controllers. We’ve banged on drums for Rock Band. We’ve crooned on the mic for the top score. But this is not the end-all of rockstardom.

FreeStyleGames and Activision once again brings out the music star in us by bringing us hopefuls to the turntable. DJ Hero is set to invade our consoles by the end of this year.


Yes, Activision Publishing, Inc. is set to once again transform how consumers interact with music by releasing three new titles this fall, including DJ Hero. The slate will modify the way consumers enjoy and engage with music by presenting the biggest array of music genres, innovative technologies and new social entertainment experiences for existing aficionados and millions of new consumers who previously have not joined Guitar Hero’s global community of fans.

DJ Hero will primarily simulate Turntablism and will feature gameplay similar to the Guitar Hero games. The controller will consist of a wireless deck having a turntable, 3 buttons, an effects dial, and a crossfader. DJ Hero will transform players into DJs who rule the club scene by producing original mixes of popular songs and music from the world’s most thrilling artists and DJs. Notes will travel in an arc across a spinning record, and the player will hold down one of the 3 buttons and scratch the turntable to play notes. The effects dial will work like the whammy bar in the Guitar Hero games.

Again, DJ Hero will be available later this year but no exact date has been set. In the meantime, you can sign up here on Amazon to be one of the firsts to know the moment DJ Hero hits the market.
