The game was unveiled by the Actvision CEO during a chat with CNBC. Kotick stated that:

"We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year which is a turntable that you can actually play competitively, spin discs and mix on."

As expected, the upcoming game will feature its own set of dedicated peripherals. The Guitar Hero franchise was very successful in selling plastic axes, now we’ll see the same shopping madness looking forward to toys pretending to be DJ gear.

With DJ Hero Activision seeks to reach new audiences by appealing more and more to those outside the hardcore area of the gaming universe.

We’re only wondering if DJ Hero will soon be followed by a competitor dubbed DJ Band…
