STANDALONE DJ HERO™ TURNTABLE CONTROLLERS NOW AVAILABLE AT GUITARHEROSTORE.COM

Second Turntable Controller Lets Friends and Family Join the Party

SANTA MONICA, CA – December 1, 2009 – Clubgoers, music lovers and living room legends around the world have already started the party with DJ Hero™ and now beat chemists who have been clamoring to invite their friends to join the party can spin in harmony with a standalone turntable controller, available today from the Guitar Hero Store. With DJ competitions playing a large role in DJ culture, the inclusion of a DJ vs. DJ competitive mode in DJ Hero was a natural fit.

In the game’s multiplayer modes, two DJs can mix and scratch together on multiple turntable controllers; or using a Guitar Hero guitar controller along with a turntable controller, gamers can perform a series of infamous DJ-guitar exclusive mixes, just as many of the artists in DJ Hero have. Additionally, another player can join in at any time with a mic to emcee over any track in the game.
