Never DJ alone

Turn table

Tired of your roommate/family member/resident couch potato hogging your “DJ Hero” turntable? Then it’s time to grab a second spin instrument for a little head-to-head competition.

Standalone turntable controllers became available today from the Guitar Hero Store ( . With DJ competitions playing a large role in DJ culture, the inclusion of a DJ vs. DJ competitive mode in “DJ Hero” was a natural fit.

In the game’s multiplayer modes, two DJs can mix and scratch together on multiple turntable controllers; or using a Guitar Hero guitar controller along with a turntable controller, gamers can perform a series of infamous DJ-guitar exclusive mixes, just as many of the artists in DJ Hero have. Additionally, another player can join in at any time with a mic to emcee over any track in the game.

The turntables for PS3, XBox 360 and the Wii retail for $69.99.
