    Default Scratch:The Ultimate DJ (DJ version of Guitar Hero)

    So I just saw this today about a new Guitar Hero-esque game called Scratch: The Ultimate DJ that will be out on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

    It apparently has a hardware controller that was made by Numark called the "Scratch Deck". It looks kind of interesting, but it really depends on the game play and how accurate it's going to be.

    Overall it's good to see the DJ culture moving a little more mainstream. And it's good to have real equipment designer working on the game controller instead of a company that thinks they know about DJing.

    Here's the link:

    Let me know what you think good or bad.

    I played this in an arcade a year or two ago.

    It was terrible. There was a footswitch and four buttons. I don't understand what anything did, it was not like DJing at all. I'd rather play Frequency

    You sure it was the same thing? They were talking about having a "scratch deck" made by Numark?

    Maybe they made a new controller for the game or something. But, I doubt that Numark would just come up with a footswitch and 4 buttons. But, you never know.

    This is just more fuel for vinyl or cd dj's to talk sh*t about us!

    This is a dj from L.A. that hates laptop dj with a passion

    I'm sure Numark is coming up with a new controller and it's not the same.

    But the game just wasn't good. They would need to redesign it
