DJ Hero, the newest take on the music/rhythm genre from publisher Activision, is a ground-breaking endeavor no matter how you slice it, and only gets more intriguing with today’s announcement of the inclusion of world-renowned DJ’s Shadow, Z-Trip and AM.

That’s right, tunes from The Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Justice, Marvin Gaye, Beck, Beastie Boys, and N.E.R.D, and many more have been transformed into original mixes by the aforesaid legends of the turntable. Every mix is original and exclusive to the DJ Hero experience and will challenge you to scratch your way to club music excellence.

I must say, DJ Hero has transformed itself from a totally preposterous idea, at least in my perception, to a very intriguing, and dare I say it, worthy investment, and on grounds of ingenuity alone? Well, we’ll see.

    thanks for the link loli.

    voted for ZTRIP! that guy kills it!

    super excited he’s in the game. does anyone know when the game comes out?

    How much and when does it come out? That’s what we really want to now. Sure Shadow and Z-Trip are wicked fresh, but so what. Especially since we gotta put up with Am? I didn’t even know who he was until I googled him. Just found out he was in a plane crash and is suing the dead pilots.

    Maybe we should all skip the game.

    I take it that there are no AM fans out there anymore….THANK GOD!

    Im excited about this game, not just because it looks fun, but because activision decided to put Z-Trip on this fold. Gonna try this at E3.
