Scratch: The Ultimate DJ -- AKA DJ Hero Killer?

When DJ Hero was released last year, some people found the DJ-ing experience to be a bit too corny for their tastes. In steps Numark - makers of premiere DJ equipment - with Scratch: The Ultimate DJ. Unlike DJ Hero, Scratch offers a more "authentic DJ experience" as the deck is a replica of a real Numark deck and you score points in the game by using real life DJ moves, such as the hamster scratch, rather than push buttons as the come on the screen in a "Simon Says" type of manner. The game will also be a little bit more underground and old school as songs from the likes of Deltron 3030, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Whodini, Murs, RJD2 and The Knux will be featured. Add a cosign from Mix Master Mike and QD3 and you have a game that seems to be pretty enticing for those who crave a more realistic approach to DJing. The game will be released early in 2010 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Check out some images after the jump.
