Hmm, I'd quite like to see this as well.

Looking forward to seeing both DJ Hero and Scratch. They can't be as horrible as Beatmania. I always thought that controller looked fun, but it was just kinda terrible. More like playing a piano than spinning.

Funny you mention that as House music (really early House) is the only kind of EDM I listen to.
Still, even that is a bit too progressive for me.

I grew up on house as well, will always be my first love. Just imagine how awesome this game would be if you were tappin' and scratching to Loose Joints "Is It All Over My Face".

They are actually developed by the same company. Or rather, Scratch *was* developed by the same company until Activision bought them and put them onto DJ Hero. Hence the legal battle between the publishers of Scratch and Activision over the issue.

This better be one of the only SKU's and not be one of those yearly new hardware deals. If I buy the damn mix pad I don't want it to be obsolete in a year. And for the love of God if you do make a sequel make all the DLC work with each version and allow importing like RB does!

Interesting. Wikipedia mentions in passing some sort of legal suit but I didn't know what that was all about.

Thanks for the info. Will be interesting to see how this'll work.

wtf, never heard of Bong-Ra & End.User. They remind me of RoG Hardcore Produktionz, which is a good thing. What the hell is up with this "breakcore" term.. what ever happened to gabber. Damn, I haven't listened to electronic music in a while.

:lol Yeah, it can be hard to follow. Speedcore, gabber, breakcore, subgenres WITHIN SUBGENRES! I just love really fast, complex music. Bong-Ra though is really awesome and worth checking out, Enduser has some really good songs but I'm not huge on him.

Edit: In regards to breakcore, just hit up the wikipedia article for basic information, I don't think you'd be looked down upon. :D

No - Scratch was being made by 7 Studios, who Activision purchased. FreeStyleGames, who Activision also purchased, are developing DJ Hero.

The hardware looks better then that shitty render from a few weeks back.

The fact I assume Red Octane are making it helps too.

I read the GI article. The controls are much more complicated than GH, but shouldn't be too hard to pick up. This game wouldn't be so bad if there weren't a fucking torrent of these music games and their plastic toy counterparts.
