I saw DJ Hero on sale yesterday. At three places. And then I went to the used game store that I check weekly. They had a ton of controllers on the shelves. It looked like a DJ Hero graveyard. I wanted to take a picture, but I...
As if being able to totally bring the house down with fat beats isn't enough incentive for you to pre-order DJ Hero 2, GameStop and Activision are sweetening the deal a bit. Those that order the DJ Hero 2 "Turntable Bundle" o...

Time to pretend like I'm down with the sick beats, yo. As we all pretty much assumed, DJ Hero is getting a sequel, although it hasn't been confirmed. We've already heard that DJ Qbert and David Guetta may be involved with the...
We found out yesterday that DJ Hero was 2009's highest grossing IP, so it should come as no surprise that DJ Hero 2 is already shaping up to be huge. FreestyleGames' Chris Lee dropped some tease on the sequel this week: "We'r...
If I had to guess what the highest grossing new IP of 2009 was, I probably would not have picked DJ Hero. Nothing against Activision's game or anything, but I didn't think it made that big of a dent last year. It did, though....

DJ Hero hasn't been on store shelves for more than a few hours, and already the entrepenuers are crawling out of the woodwork. One enterprising North Carolina resident is already offering up his DJ Hero services on Craig...
