  • Amazon lists DJ Hero for $119 (including turntable)

    I’m not sure how much faith we should put in these numbers, but here we go. Amazon has DJ Hero, of which I’m still deeply skeptical of, listed for $119.99. That includes the game and turntable. Read More

  • Guitar Hero 5 slated for September launch

    Activision has declared war against the most popular band of all freakin’ time. The fifth installment in the Guitar Hero franchise (aside from the band specific titles) goes on sale September 1st, which is eight days before The Beatles: Rock Band hits store shelves. Oh boy!

  • CrunchArcade Preview: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game

    I’m still pissed off that Bay gave Optimus moving robotic lips in the first film, but the overall awesomeness of seeing CGI Transformers 20+ years after the fact allows me to tolerate such insubordination.

  • Guitar Hero comes to PlayStation Home

    Today, Activision and Sony announced “Backstage with Guitar Hero” for PlayStation Home so players can congregate and accost each other virtually while watching GH videos and sharing their own greatest hits.

  • Activision's DJ Hero Web site is now live (but don't expect too much information)

    Heads up, wannabes. The Web site for Activision’s upcoming game DJ Hero has now gone live. There’s, like, zero information on the site as yet, except for a “sign up to be the first to know” sign-up button. Read More

  • Yes Yes Yes: Activision confirms DJ Hero

    And now, the greatest news since that time I was coming home from a bar in Barcelona only to find out that Radio Slave was performing by the club near my old apartment and I freaked out because oh my God it’s Radio Slave: Activision has confirmed the development of DJ Hero. Call me a jerk, I don’t care, I’m getting this game. Read More
