    When the party starts this October, virtual DJ's and MC's throughout the universe will fire up two turntable controllers and a microphone and mix it up with Tiësto – one of electronic music's defining artists, DJ's and producers – in DJ Hero® 2. Having worked with the likes of Muse, Justin Timberlake, Jónsi from Sigur Rós, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Three 6 Mafia, performed for billions of fans at the opening ceremonies of the Athens Olympics and headlined the Coachella and Bonnaroo music festivals among others, Tiësto has earned his status as the world's hottest DJ. The GRAMMY® Nominee will be spinning for a new audience as he takes to the virtual ones and twos, delivering a pair of pulse-pounding exclusive mixes and joining the ever-growing roster of playable characters, including Deadmau5, David Guetta, DJ Qbert and others. Tiësto is king, apparently.

    "DJ Hero 2 is all about bringing people of different backgrounds, ages and music tastes together to have some fun DJ'ing their favorite music. The way the music comes together is fresh and unique and as a DJ, I couldn't ask for more than that,"said Tiësto. "I am excited to be involved with this medium and to be contributing to a great game with an amazing soundtrack." The ultimate mixer of music and friends, DJ Hero 2 will deliver the definitive way for players to come together and party with a host of new multiplayer modes – including DJ Battles that pit DJ against DJ in mixes produced specifically for battle gameplay – and invite vocalists into the spotlight with integrated on-screen singing and rapping of lyrics and rhymes while bringing the party to life with jump-in/jump-out Party Play gameplay. Featuring the biggest dance, pop and hip-hop hits by the hottest artists everyone knows and loves remixed by world-class DJ's in an all-new way, the game's soundtrack delivers over 80 unique creations only available in DJ Hero 2. Further immersing players into the music, the game offers a heightened level of creative input and allows everyone to add their own touch, directly imp acting the beats they're spinning with freestyle scratching, crossfading and sampling. The game will also feature an all-new career-based Empire Mode where players start out as an up-and-coming DJ on the road to becoming the head of a major entertainment empire, all of which is founded solely on their success as a DJ.

    Do you play DJ Hero? Is Activision overkilling it with too many music simulator games?
