Capitalizing on the hugely successful industry of video games such as Blizzard Activision’s Guitar Hero and MTV Games’ Rock Band, Activision just confirmed their intention to release a similar game that puts players in the position of DJ.

DJ Hero, the title announced this week by Blizzard Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, has been in the works and the topic of video game rumor mills for quite some time now. Guitar Hero director Brian Bright hinted at the possibility of such a game at a party in October.

This latest installment in the Hero series will be similar to its interactive predecessors in that it will incorporate a lifelike turntable that players will use in place of a standard controller.

“We have the product called DJ Hero that’s coming out later this year which is a turntable that you can actually play competitively and spin discs and mix songs,” Kotick said.

Early critics of the game cite its lack of difference from Konami’s Beatmania, which also uses a turntable-inspired controller. Those involved with the project, however, promise that both the controls and the music (rumored to be centered around mashups) used will be more original and innovative than Konami’s effort.

No release date has been confirmed, but Activision seems optimistic that the game will be out later this year.
