Tiesto Breaks the Silence on DJ Hero, Guitar Hero Simile

Even though Activision has yet to announce any spin-off versions of Guitar Hero, rumor on the web has it that they will release DJ Hero by the middle of 2009. DJ Tiesto, whom I think needs not introduction, is the latest big name to lift the veil on the upcoming release.

“I am very excited about this! I think this is a great way to introduce people into Djing. Maybe they realize it's not as easy as they think. I am sure this brings new fans to the scene, dance music is not far from hip-hop for example. Hopefully the music I have composed appeals to all kinds of fans!” says Tiesto.


Big name bands such as Metallica and Aerosmith already have their very own special editions of Guitar Hero. Since Tiesto is one of the biggest names in the electronic dance music scene, once DJ Hero drops, we can expect to see the launch of a Tiesto edition as well.

There are a lot of things we do not know for sure right now – things like how the game will look or feel. What we do know is Activision has filed a trademark for the name “DJ Hero” and that Brian Bright, Guitar Hero World Tour project director, has somewhat confirmed the title.

In related news, at the end of November we were reporting that Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger was not too hyped up about Guitar Hero and used the release of their latest album, “Dark Horse”, as a pretext to invite Guitar Hero players to put down the game and pick up a real instrument instead. Chad Kroeger complained that there are not enough rock bands on the circuit, and if you really like to play, then why not form a band and play for real – start a rock band and hit the road.

Having a baby is tough, with all the crying, severe lack of sleep, and constant care and attention you have to pour into what is essentially a tiny poop machine. There’s absolutely no way you could ever compare it with something like, I don’t know, playing video games. Could you?
