The status of DJ Hero developer FreeStyle Games has been in limbo for some time, but the company has announced this afternoon that it "will continue its strong relationship with Activision"
In fact the British studio is already working on a new super-secret project for the publisher, which will be announced in the coming months. Unfortunately, the studio did confirm that it had made 35 positions..
DLC for Activision's main-line music games -- DJ Hero and Guitar Hero -- was supposed to have dried up by now, but the publisher's decided to extend support for the platforms due to "continued support" from fans
The cynical side of us reckons Activision's still making good money from this stuff. No word on what's on the horizon, just know that there...
Fact: DJ Hero, and particularly its sequel, are amazing games
Fact: DJ Hero underperformed at retail. Fact: Activision just killed Guitar Hero. Fact: People are probably going to lose their jobs. Which really sucks because there's clearly piles and piles of talent at the British studio behind the scratch-em-up, FreeStyle Games. Like we said, the DJ Hero games are amazing. The second one in..

Perhaps we're biased by the games being fresh in our memory, but if you asked us our favourite games of the year right now, Vanquish and DJ Hero 2 would certainly be up there
It's sad to see both games miss out on solid spots in the UK sales top ten, then. Vanquish only managed a spot at number 12, while DJ Hero 2 was way behind at 25. Disappointing, then — but as one of our followers pointed out..
The first DJ Hero 2 reviews are in and it's all love from what we can see
Eurogamer's plumped up a juicy fat 9, as have IGN UK and Destructoid. The Metacritic's currently sitting pretty with an average score of 90; and they say the music genre's dead right? DJ Hero 2 is out this week. Who's picking it up?
Activision's confirmed that European copies of the DJ Hero 2 bundle - both the turn-table and party sets - will come with an additional bonus while stocks last: a copy of the original DJ Hero game
That means if you're coming into the series fresh, you'll start out with a whopping 170 mixes. Not bad, right? The problem is, both bundles are still extortionate. But hey, if you like free things...

Activision's just sent us a press release that's got us screaming like the little PopJustice fanboys we are -- every single mix in DJ Hero 2's roster
Squeeeeee. It looks so good. There's a bit of Tiesto, bit of Guetta, and plenty of GaGa. Hell yes folks. Hit the jump for the full shebang. S'gonna be great. The game's gonna be available in a range of bundles. You'll be able to get a massive £150..

Activision's dropped the bass--erm, the setlist for their upcoming DJ-'em-up sequel, DJ Hero 2
Among the artists features are Basement Jaxx, Chic, Lady GaGa and Timbaland. Naturally we're pretty stoked. This is the only music game we're excited for this Fall (sorry SingStar: Dance) and it looks like it's going to be killer. Get the full list after the jump. And imagine the party you could be having..
In high school we used to have these keyboards with a "Dictionary" mode on them
Nobody really remembers what the button did because we were all too busy pressing it multiple times to notice. Y'see, the button used to have a voice sample attached to it, which made for some fantastic rhythmic manipulation: "D-D-D-D-D-D-Dict-D-Dictionary", we'd go. Good times. We're telling you this story..
In the original DJ Hero you played tracks and that was about it really
In DJ Hero 2, that's set to change. Freestyle games are introducing a massive career mode called "Empire", in which you'll pick a brand and location and watch your DJ turn into a super-star as your reputation grows. It sounds like a cool way to flesh out the dry experience of simply playing tracks for stars. We're..
DJ Hero is a party game
It is strange, therefore, that the original game had nothing in the way of party modes. Thankfully, DJ Hero 2 rectifies that. There are a ton of multiplayer modes being added to the game, the most exciting of which is the "Party Play" mode. This allows players to drop-in and drop-out of the game seamlessly, without ever stopping the music from playing. So you can..
Activision's confirmed that the Netherland's own DJ maestro, Tiesto, will join the roster of DJ Hero 2
He'll be providing two unique mixes to the game, aswell as his likeness. Presumably the mixes will include plenty of four to the floor kick patterns and gated synths. 'Cos that's what Tiesto does, innit? As much as we like Tiesto, we can't help but feel DJ Hero already played its trump-card with..
Would you like to know which artists are participating in DJ Hero 2? Of course you would
There are a whopping 108 musicians/bands/producers taking part. Rather than us sitting here typing a load of waffle, allow us to just pick out some of the listed artists that take our fancy: Basement Jaxx, Chic, Lady GaGa, Metallica, M.I.A., Stevie Wonder, Timbaland. That's just a cross-section. This game's..
.. We're in heaven — DJ Hero 2 has been officially announced and now, via Joystiq, we've got some early details on the game's set-list. Activision's outrageously expensive E3 party - which featured performances from Usher, NERD, Chris Cornell, Tool's Maynard Keenan and Jane's Addiction - also featured plenty of DJ Hero 2, with the lists of artists we've placed after the jump all due to make an..
Activision wants you to know that they've signed up a range of world-leading music artists for a pile of their upcoming releases, including Call Of Duty: Black Ops, DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock and True Crime
Of all those titles, music by Usher, Eminem, Soundgarden, Pharrell Williams and David Guetta makes sense in two. "Activisions autumn titles are set to give gamers an..
Oooooooh man, DJ Hero 2 is a real product, and it sounds kind of amazing
Like literally sounds amazing. Leaked mixes include a Deadmau5 reimagining of Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" and some remixed Pussycat Dolls. It also looks like Activision are going for more of a party feel with DJ Hero 2, offering karaoke lyrics at the top of the screen. But, as you know, DJ Hero is really all about the..
This debut trailer for DJ Hero 2 will tell you everything you need to know
The game's designed for c0ol people (not greasy metal-heads), features microphone and dual-deck support... and it also has Lady GaGa in it. That mix sounds kind of rad, yo. We've placed the trailer after the jump courtesy of IGN. We literally cannot wait. <object id="vid_57891"..
If this morning's story wasn't confirmation enough, Activision's just formally announced DJ Hero 2
First details reveal that there will be over 85 artists involved in the game, with a total of 70 mashups included. Artists name-dropped include Lady GaGa, The Chemical Brothers, Dr. Dre Metallica (?) and more. There'll be all new multiplayer modes in the sequel, including a DJ Battle Mode which will..
Sorry, excuse us a moment while we run outside and dance to the hits of Madonna - DJ Hero 2 is finally official
The over-priced (but totally awesome) mix 'em up was overshadowed by a stonking price-tag when it launched last year, but with the peripheral already in a number of homes, we're looking forward to simply picking up DJ Hero 2 on disc. We want more tracks, y'see. And we want a little less..
We don't know how they've done it, but VG247 has got their hands on a release schedule from British retailer GAME
Amongst many interesting discoveries, the listing outs a number of key Activision titles for release in October. Amongst the big hitters are Call Of Duty 7 - the latest foray into the military shooter franchise by spin-off developer Treyarch - aswell as DJ Hero 2 and James Bond Racing..
Top DJ David Guetta [and the mastermind behind tons of amazing French house - Ed] has hinted he's working on a follow-up to DJ Hero
In an interview with Kelowna, Guetta said, I think its amazing, this game [DJ Hero], and Im going to work on the No. 2 version. Its a really crazy game, he said.After ten minutes, you get the rush that a DJ gets after ten years of practising. I have fun..
