What mixes are you excited for? I’m especially into the inclusion of LMFAO and Pump Up The Jam, but it’s all trumped by “Return of The Mack”. Awesome!

    Admittedly I haven’t been keeping track of DJ Hero as much as the other music games. I’m assuming exports aren’t happening?

      “We aren’t ready to talk about that yet”

      DLC for DJ Hero being compatible is a good sign though… Right?

      • Shmoo says:

        DLC still “buy the whole pack or nothing” means I will continue my policy of spending $0 on DJ Hero/2 DLC. Is it that hard for them to recognize they could sell more as singles, especially when the packs are typically a random assortment?

        If Rock Band required me to buy pack or nothing I wouldn’t have purchased 300+ DLC tracks.

    Man, I played DJ Hero 2 at Best Buy yesterday. Well, a demo of it. Never played the first one, but was always curious about the scratch pad. Wow… I played one on Medium (Freak Like Me) and walked away after a minute. Keeping the three buttons on the left so the colors would go the right way was uncomfortable, the slider switch was too loose, basically I couldn’t get in control, let alone stay there. I like the idea, and the graphics were nice (something-MOU5 is awesome, the DJ) but damn, not for me.

    Sucks about the all-or-nothing packs too.
