Nintendo Universe writes: Following news yesterday that Activision had disbanded its Guitar Hero Business Division, the publisher has further confirmed that they are to also cancel the DJ Hero series.
Don't be mad, be glad. If you ask me this is a smart move, why waste money on games that have expensive peripherals and are dwindling in sale (DJ Hero, Guitar Hero, etc..) when you can make mad money selling map packs and COD every year...yeah. Vote with your money people, stop supporting map packs....1.4 millions in MAP PACKS!!!!!!.....MAP PACKS!!!!!!!!! Yeah I am mad...they are mother 'effing MAP PACKS!!!! GOD! $15 for a MAP PACK...spend that in an actual game instead and stop supporting this company. I hear Demon Soul is going for $25 new, not to mention all those specials on STEAM every year and GOG.com games. Now thats money well spent.
Guitar and DJ and True Crime, Call of Duty will die and so will Activision
Shame, DJ Hero was actually fun to play.
True. I have both DJ Hero 1 & 2 and I'm very disappointed with Activision. Poor Freestyle Games. The DJ Hero series really had a great soundtrack. And the gameplay was fun... This is what I (and a lot of fans) get for buying their turntable? 2 games?? That's it??? Wow. Im really lost for words. Screw Activision! Im really not buying their games anymore! WORST. PUBLISHER. EVER. @dredgewalker below -Yes they should cancel Kotick - Most hated person in the history of videogames!
Can they also cancel Kotick?
nooooooooooooo! DJ Hero (1&2) were excellent :( so, is this include "no more DLC for existing titles" ?? don't need a entire team to add 2-3 songs no?

I didn't realize there were THAT many. haha Daaammnn!! Activision definitely knows how to whore out franchises. Just wait. In a few years, you'll have a list of Call of Duty games that long. Hell probably in like 2 more years, you'll see a list that long of Call of Duty games. haha I'm done with CoD until they bring back the old CoD4 formula, back when the game was fun and, more importantly, BALANCED! @fatstarr Ok, admittedly, haha, the game wasn't perfectly balanced, BUT it was still much more balanced than the following 3 Call of Duty games' multiplayer modes. And, the M16 was also a bit overpowered in CoD4, I'll admit. haha
Cod4 was the best and it wasn't balanced p90 was.the best gun
We nearly have that COD list now. Call of Duty Call of Duty: United Offensive Call of Duty: Finest Hour Call of Duty 2 Call of Duty 2: Big Red One Call of Duty 3 Call of Duty: Roads to Victory Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty: World At War Call of Duty: World At War: Final Fronts Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Call of Duty: Black Ops Good riddence to these milked Activision franchises.
Lol Tony hawk?
This is what happens when a company like activision doesn't care about the quality of there products!!! That's why i haven't bought a game from them in 3 years!!
Im glad to here this since GH2 they have been poor. RB has been far better than GH sine it release. Lets hope RB done end up going the same way but that they also only release a new game every 1 to 2 years instead of a new game every 4 months.
Got my keyboard yesterday for RB3 , currentlly learning keyboard pro mode .. GH stopped being intresting years ago
Dj Hero was at least doing something new.. It's the end of an era. Thank goodness I still have Rock Band.
