DJ Hero Confirmed for This Year

DJ Hero has been a long-lasting rumor, and up until this morning, I thought it was a joke. Activision’s CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed the rumored DJ Hero, also saying that it will be released this year.

DJ Hero will be similar to the Guitar Hero franchise, as the name implies, shipping with a peripheral that will allow you to play along recorded music.

Revealing to CNBC, Kotick says “We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year which is a turntable that you can actually play competitively, spin discs and mix on”.

Kotick also added in the interview that the peripherals and online play help to reach a wider audience and be able to grow in the market.

“This physical interface is definitely starting to have a real impact on the consumer. Online is creating a much more social experience than videogames have had before. You’re continuing to see lots of innovation that’s adding lots of new audiences.”
