In the only logical follow-on from Sing Star and Guitar Hero, Activision will release a game for the bedroom bangers later in 2009. Said Bobbi Kotick at the World Economic Forum recently: "We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year, which is a turntable that you actually can play competitively and spin discs and mix songs." Perfect for a) procrastinating when you should be working/studying, b) practicing your closing set at Pacha, and c) finally settling that score with your DJ nemesis over who is in fact the better mixer and who just creates trainwreck after trainwreck. The game has been endorsed - unofficially, as yet - by Paul Oakenfold.
