DJ Hero – Activision gives official blessing

It's three months since DJ Hero crossed our gadget radar. But the Guitar Hero spin off has at last been confirmed by the chief of Activision, finally

According to the chaps at CVG, Activision's Robert Kotick couldn't help himself and let the new slip before his PR machine could get in on the act. "We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year," he said. "[It has] a turntable that you actually can play competitively and spin discs and mix songs."

Doesn't get much clearer than that. Now we know how we're going to become the next superstar DJ, all that remains to be seen is a full tracklist and whether you can throw the guitars and drums from Guitar Hero into the mix. I mean, who doesn't want to sound like an early Noughties hard rock outfit?

Are you keen? Or will you be sticking to striking poses like Eddie Van Halen in front of the TV while you're pals look on in barely concealed amusement? Tell us in the comments section.
