DJ Hero, Band Hero coming

Video game publisher Activision announced on Thursday it will launch three new music games, with the turntable controller pictured designed to work with DJ Hero. That title, along with Guitar Hero and Band Hero, are due for a release sometime this fall. DJ Hero will include hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance music genres and, as Activision calls it, feature some of the "world's most exciting artists and DJs." It's not clear whether the DJ controller will allow scratching in addition to its button controls.

The new Band Hero title aims to bring the traditional Rock Band experience to younger gamers, as it's the first E10+ rated console game from the franchise. The varied music collection will include a top-40 list of songs and feature the same guitar, drums, bass and microphone controllers as in the Rock Band game.

The latest Guitar Hero 5 title will add new songs and offer more flexibility by letting players drop in and out of songs and change band members as well as instruments and levels of difficulty while in the middle of a performance.

Activision has not released exact launch dates for any of the new titles nor the controllers, and pricing is also a mystery thus far.
