I used to be a DJ in the 80′s, and I enjoy doing party mixes for a crowd, or to a tape recorder. Having two turntables (and sometimes a drum machine), and playing various dance/club songs were fun me. It was an expensive hobby too, I bought a lot of vinyls.
Now, it looks like Activision is going to bring back memories for me with their latest game DJ Hero. It’s like Guitar Hero but using turntable and mixer instruments. I’ve been anticipating this for a while. It looks like it has the “fun” factor in it. However, just like a serious guitar player would laugh at Guitar Hero, I’m also laughing at this setup. It’s marketed to gamers, I suppose I can’t put it down too much. I’ll just roll with it, and enjoy it as pure fun & games.
Here’s the demo from E3 2009.
