So Much For Confidentiality Agreements: Tiësto Spills the Beans About ‘DJ Hero’

tiesto dj hero

As speculation among gamers and DJs grows about Activision’s top secret DJ Hero, a spinoff of the Guitar Hero franchise which will supposedly receive a summer ’09 release, Tiësto has gushed about his involvement in the hush-hush video game project on his newsletter.

“We are proud to announce that Tiësto has teamed up with the game developer Activision and their latest project DJ Hero,” proclaimed the newsletter. Tiësto added: “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!”

But how exactly will the game work? Will any other artists’ music appear on the soundtrack? Tiësto, fill us in and forget all that loose lips sink ships nonsense.

  1. Am I the only writer on Big Shot’s staff that doesn’t understand why we cover this guy? He doesn’t need any more coverage, and his music is terrible to boot– even friends of mine who love trance music think he’s an idiot.

    Additionally, DJ Hero? WE’RE APPLAUDING THIS BULLSHIT?!?

  3. This story is about DJ Hero, a game so top secret Activision isn’t even talking about it. This piece neither praises or disses Tiesto’s music; it simply states the fact that he has a big mouth.

  5. What I don’t get is why all of these people addicted to these games don’t seem interested in learning to play for real. They need to spend all of the time they do on the real instruments instead of the BS… They may suck but the world would still be a better place.

  9. what a load of bollocks they push to the kids, Guitar hero is about pressing buttons, that’s all laptop and CD’s DJ’s do in real life, so i can’t see how they could make it easier. Perhaps a baby shitting it’s nappy, will be able to activate a time stretch or something, turn off the box and experience life , sad fuckers.

  13. Cause buying a $100-200 game is a lot cheaper than buying a (at a minimum) $1000 turntable/mixer (or replace that with a guitar or drum kit) for entertainment?

    Grow some brains people??
