According to Billboard magazine Activision is running out of bands to peddle on Guitar Hero and have turned their marketing eye to hip hop and Electronica with their upcoming game DJ Hero..
Question: I wonder if the game is going to come with SL1200 tables or monome style game controllers?
Answer: According to this USAToday article, the games comes with “a turntable-shaped controller, DJ stand and metal traveling case.”
Players use the features on the game’s controller — a rotating record platter, sampling buttons, an effects dial and a cross fader — to match streams of song tracks, create effects and add personal touches to score points.
Contributing Artists to the game include Jay-Z, Eminem, 50 Cent, Beastie Boys, KRS-One, Blondie, N.E.R.D., Gorillaz, David Bowie, DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, DJ AM and about 62 artists more.
Anyway, I hope someday, Activision sees the light and makes a no-holds-barred GG Allin-Hero video Game!!! Now.. that would be interesting!
wow, i can’t wait until electronica makes a comeback.. can you imagine Madonna being produced by Brooklyn’s own Datach’i?
I can’t wait to see KTEL selling electronica all-star compilation CDs on TV! oh wait.. the CD is dead.. ah, nevermind..
