My interest in video games has drastically been reduced over the years. Leading factor is how involved and intricate most games are leading to a sinkhole of time waste. There are some gems here and there the past couple years that have peaked my interest enough to plop down and widdle away at my day. I think that the new dj related games, a-la Guitar Hero will be new additions.
There are two games coming to market, much like Guitar Hero has competing Rock Band in the marketplace. Little bits of info have been released over the past 6 months regarding the games, finally though the first controller by Numark has been released for “Scratch: The Ultimate DJ Videogame Controller” (pics below).
I have been dj’ing for about a decade now and scratching for about 9 of those ten years. Although I am not a fan of Numark gear in any capacity (Vestax/Rane for me) I cant wait to get my hands on this thing and see what the feel of the controller is like with the game play. Now all I need to do is get my hands on an Xbox to give this thing a test drive when its out.
Those of you attending E3 will be able to get some hands on for a early preview.
