Numark and Genius hope to challenge the popular "Hero" franchise.


The producers of Scratch: The Ultimate DJ revealed the first images of their turntable-based controller today in preparation for its showing at E3. The game is due out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the press will get hands-on experience with the "Scratch Deck" controller next week. The game hopes to challenge Activision's name brand recognition for DJ Hero, which recently revealed its own turntable controller.

Numark, a manufacturer of real turntables, co-developed the controller to replicate the DJ experience. Players will be able to customize their tracks by loading samples or uploading their own. "For decades, Numark has been developing turntables, DJ mixers, and digital DJ controllers," said director of Business Development Adam Cohen. "We know what professional DJs demand, and we used that knowledge to produce Scratch Deck."

Scratch and DJ Hero are bound to go head-to-head with such similar products, so the real test for consumers will be how the games function and feel. We'll get our hands on both next week and let you know what we think.

Yet another way to fake any actual playing. I guess calling a turntable an instrument is debatable anyway though. - no offense retro. But if it sucks, maybe you'll understand why as a guitar player I hate guitar hero.  :D

I am not to big on alot of the digital tools that are offered for deejays but this one looks cool & BTW I hate rock band due to the fact I play bass guitar ;)

This would be a fun toy to mod & maybe make into a USB midi controller

I've seen such a feat accomplished with garage band on a mac using a Rock Band drumset. Pretty good stuff.

were the Rock Band instruments Bluetooth? Is that how they got it to work with GB on Mac?
