Wait, Activision is giving away something for free?!
A few weeks ago, Activision and FreeStyleGames announced the full list of 105 songs included in DJ Hero 2, and now they’ve revealed the 83 playable mixes.
Activision and FreeStyleGames have announced six more DJs that will be contributing mixes to the upcoming DJ Hero 2. Returning from the first game are DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, and the Scratch Perverts (who were responsible for the hardest mix on the first DJ Hero), while A-Trak and Diplo make their series debut.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.

Tiesto, one of electronic music’s most popular and successful DJs, will be making his video game debut in DJ Hero 2 this October.
Looking back, Tiesto has quite the track record. The scratching legend has worked with the likes of Muse, Justin Timberlake, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Three 6 Mafia and has spawned dozens of albums in the process.
Coming off the announcement of the latest installment to the Guitar Hero franchise, Activision has kept the rhythm ball rolling with DJ Hero 2.
We hope you’re ambidextrous because the game will feature two turntables along with a microphone, making you that much closer to being an actual DJ in a club.
This may come as a surprise to many, but Activision has pointed out that DJ was in fact the highest grossing new IP for the whole of 2009 in both the United States and Europe.
Now obviously the high price tag had something to do with it, but when you consider the amount of big games out last year, it is a bit unexpected.
We’re already big fans of DJ Hero here at Attitude Towers, partly thanks to our early hands-on with the game, but we were always a little worried about the track list.
Would it be varied enough to attract different ages and music fans, or would it be just for the hardcore turntablists out there.
Well, wonder no more as Activision have revealed all 93 tracks, and they seem to have covered everything.
There are a few things this particular writer used to be good at in the ’80s, but that can no longer be managed without the aid of a team of assistants.
Skateboarding, BMX, rock climbing and turntablism to name but a few.
But now thanks to the nice people at Activision, it is possible once again to spin ‘the wheels of steel’ and sound like you actually know what you’re doing. Welcome to the world of DJ Hero.
Even if you’re not a fan of the DJ scene, you at least have to admire the colourful and inventive names of its super-stars.
Announced last week, Activision have confirmed that British wheel-spinners DJ Yoda and Scratch Perverts have been added to the line-up of upcoming sign of armageddon/music title DJ Hero.
It looks like collector’s editions are all the rage these days and DJ Hero will be no exception. Endorsed by both Jay-Z and Eminem, the Renegade Edition will feature an exclusive controller, hardshell turntable carrying case that converts to a performance-ready DJ stand, and a 2-CD pack featuring new unreleased songs from the rapping duo.
Announced to the world today, actor, R&B record producer, world famous “turntablist”, personal friend to Will Smith and Grammy Award winning hip-hop super-star DJ Jazzy Jeff will feature as a playable character in the upcoming licence-to-print-money Activision game DJ Hero.
From costly equipment to rare vinyl, the price of entry into the cool DJ sub-culture has always been somewhat astronomical.
It appears however that this trend is also now bleeding into the burgeoning “fake-DJ arena” with a report over at GamesIndustry.biz (via their sister-site Eurogamer) that Activision are suggesting a whopping Â£109.77 be set for the upcoming DJ Hero game plus necessary deck peripheral.
When it comes to rhythm games, Activison is on the top of the list; releasing one Guitar Hero after another, the most recent being Guitar Hero: Metallica. Stepping aside from the guitar for a moment, the company sets its sights on another instrument, the turntable.
Announcing today plans to expand their Hero empire beyond the mere guitar genre, Activision have revealed three (maybe four) new titles to ensnare anybody left on the planet who enjoys pretending to play music but …
