A closer look at Scratch: The Ultimate DJ’s turntable

Although all eyes are currently on Activision’s DJ Hero, let’s not forget about the other DJ/music contender, Scratch: The Ultimate DJ.

We had a chance to check out the game and the turntable peripheral ourselves awhile back, but with the game pushed out into 2010, it’s time for an updated look. The latest trailer focuses on the authenticity of the controller, designed by Numark. The video compares it to real DJ equipment — the Numark NS7 and the Akai Pro MPC. 

What we don’t see is the game in action. We’re curious to see what Commotion Interactive, who took over development of the title in August, is up to with the game. Scratch is said to be targeted for an early 2010 release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so it can’t be long until we get a chance to find out.
