French DJ David Guetta Unofficially Confirms DJ Hero 2

DJ Hero was one of our favorite games of 2009, garnering several music-related Game of the Year Award nominations. Therefore, we're certainly happy to hear about a sequel.

All these "Hero" spin-offs may not survive in the long run, but you can bet that Activision will attempt to keep them all popular for as long as humanly possible. And besides, DJ Hero sold relatively well and a whole lot of people would be annoyed if they only had the opportunity to use that nifty turntable once. Well, it's highly unlikely Activision would pass on a sequel but at least we've got an unofficial confirmation from French DJ David Guetta, as reported by Destructoid. He says he's "going to work on the No. 2 version" of DJ Hero, which isn't too surprising considering he contributed to the original. It seems that just about anything Activision touches in the music realm turns to gold these days, but that doesn't mean all their innovative attempts are successful. Tony Hawk: Ride bombed out big time but we try to look at the positives 'round here, and there's no doubt that we got a big winner with DJ Hero. You may not like stuff like Guitar Hero: Van Halen but you might not say that if they suddenly produced a special GH iteration with your favorite band in the spotlight.

We'll let you know when Activision wants to make this official. Don't be surprised to see DJ Hero 2 slated for a holiday 2010 launch.

Music games are the reality tv of video games.

I disagree. The thing I appreciate most about rhythm/music games is that they expose players to tunes they may have never heard before. I'm old enough to remember when the "classic rock" songs from Rock Band and GH were first played on the radio. It's nice that my 13 year old can now appreciate and LOVE some of the music that some of us oldsters grew up on.

Now I'm also very much into house/dance music. I remix and DJ, as a hobby. My family and friends never understood the appeal of the house genre before playing DJ Hero. Now my friends wanna go clubbing with me!

Gaming is all about having fun...and music games are a ton of fun! I'd love to see another DJ Hero. Can't wait to see what DLC is coming soon. Girl Talk DLC would be incredible!

and has you see like reality tv a lot of people enjoy it.

I'd say it really sucks what activision are doing with their franchises.

I stand behind my comment. Reality tv and music games are attractive genres for content producers. They are relatively cheap and easy to make and bring in large amounts of cash.

Introducing new audiences to music does not counter my opinion that music games are the gaming industry's equivalent to reality tv. I'm not too invested in the music industry to care if these games bring new fans to artists and genres. I have a well rounded love for music and my personal choices are just that.

I've played Guitar Hero and DJ Hero. I've also watched my share of reality tv, and I see similarities in the two media formats. Both can't be created fast enough because they are money makers. No need to get offended.

If they do decide to keep the series alive and keep it at par with what the original did, i don't see any big problem, i personally loved DJ Hero. (erree erreee) hahah

My favorite bands are Muse and Radiohead and I can easily say that I would much rather play their songs on my real guitar as opposed to a fake plastic one...not to mention you get so much more satisfaction out of being able to play a real instrument...

YEah i know what you mean! I play drums and guitar so i totally agree with you on that. Nothing beats playing your own insturment, but i don't mind playing some DJ game especially since i have no idea how to play it hahah

Not to mention, not everyone has the luxury of learning or playing their own instruments, so maybe it's plastic to us, but for them it's like being Van Halen hahaha

Anyways, i still have fun jamming on those guitar hero games, gives me and my friends a chance to have fun and blow off some steam you know?

Guitar hero is harder than real guitar.
I know this much, so do my guitarist friends (who only play blues & solos).

I hope fellow guitarists don't take it the wrong way.
Because obviiiously the real thing is harder but I just say the 'Hero' stuff is difficult because it's so different from the real thing.

Some things in Guitar Hero are harder than playing the song on an actual guitar. I can play Reptilia easily on a real instrument, but i barely made it through on GH.

I won the DJ Hero Demo Kit and still haven't opened it because of the song selections. I'd be more inclined if they didn't go for the radio pop stuff but I know, this is a video game aimed at the mainstream.

I'm not denying that these games can be fun, cause they can...I just think with the sheer number of titles being produced they are starting to wear out their welcome...

I think they can be fun if it depends on taste, like if you hate all the pop/punk bands or Coldplay then it will become a deadly borefest.
Hollywood Dead was in the free Rock Band pack I never play it but by the preview it can kill

let the milking commence.
as i said earlier, i hope bobby kotik is lactose intolerant because hes going to be drowning in his office soon.
im shocked there actually releasing a new IP in singularity, normally they take a old series and just piggyback of the name.
i use to love guitar hero, the first was my most played game on the ps2.
loved the series to death till they had to get greedy and send the series down the sh*tter.
and just to prove the extent of their laziness and unwillingness to spend money the adds for guitar hero 4, guitar hero 5 and DJ hero are exactly the same.
hugh hefner saying what i like variety, than some playboy girls dancing than a gameplay video.
real original!

Scrap the endless sequels and go for DLC. EA and Harmonix have made a killing without the extra cost of developing a new sequel every single year.
