Scratch


"Scratch: The Ultimate DJ" has just been announced by developer 7 Studios. It uses a lot of the same formula as Guitar Hero and will no doubt inspire a lot of knock offs. The game comes with a Scratch deck which is being created by Numark. Numark is a world renowned DJ equipment manufacturer so hopefully the Scratch Deck wont feel cheap like the Rock Bank instruments. I am wondering how long this trend will go on for, music games are huge right now. I like the idea, but I also think it could hold people back from learning to play music the old fashion way. Than again, I am sure the games have influenced a lot of people to start the real thing. Double Edged sword I guess. The game is scheduled to be released in spring 09'.
