Activision unveiled the first renders of DJ Hero's controller today, giving gamers some idea of how the basic game mechanics might work.
The controller has three buttons, all of which rest on top of the turntable. The smaller green and blue buttons are set on either side of the larger red button, which sits comfortably in the center of one side. We imagine that during play gamers will hold down one or two of the three buttons to create different scratches or sound effects in line with the music.
Activision officially announced DJ Hero earlier today, along with the likes of Band Hero and Guitar Hero V.

omg... this looks epic
i dont really want the rap... but the trance/eletronic will be awesome... and some rap/hip hop will be cool
in the game informer article it said the game would be like music version of skate... with lots of tricks to perform... i cant WAIT

For f**k sake! are real instruments even relevant to most people anymore?

i may get this if the track list is decent

@ Number 2 YES!! REAL HIP HOP!!!! but I doubt we will see any realness probably just that garbage main stream rap you see on BET. But there is always hope right??

do u know what the point of video games is?
i mean... as much as i would love to go out and buy a turn table... learn how to become a rappper... and go perform infront of large crowds...
i guess i would rather have the mates over... and mess around and have some fun

tell me about it. As a guitarist, i hate when people go on about how great they are at guitar hero and how they have the highest score online for some song. My response is usually "great, well done. now go do something requiring talent and dedication rather than just too much free time."

lmao this is terrible, I feel for all my fellow hardcore gamers, and also everyone in the music business.
@6 me and my mates always get together and have a great laugh, but you know, with real instruments. Go out and buy a second hand guitar or some turn tables, then when you get good you can actually impress people.

"i feel bad for all the hardcore gamers"

I cant see how some people like this 0_o, this is taking the hero series TOO far, stick to guitars, PLEASE.
- 3:28pm EDT - May 7th, 2009
cant tell how big/small the turntable seems.
- 3:33pm EDT - May 7th, 2009
What are these; V-TECHnics?? they're like decks for kindergarten, I'll stick to the real deal with real vinyl playing real tracks that aren't chart music.

@ 9 you got a point... are you going to go out and buy a gun instead of playing COD? Playing guitar hero is not meant to teach you how to play a guitar or replace learning how to play one. it's just a game! To all you guys that are hating why do you even play games??? Why not go drive a real car instead of playing a racing game?? why not go play football instead of playing madden? You dudes are haters!!
