Ripoff Hero: The Activision Game

That's actually a really rude title. I know I still give Activision a hardtime for ripping off Guitar Freaks, but it's just as much Konami's fault for not pushing their Bemani games. 

Now, info is starting to come out about two new games... DJ Hero and Scratch: The Ulitmate DJ, by Activision and Genius, respectively. However, instead of arguably making the game more difficult as was the case between Guitar Freaks and Guitar Hero (The addition of two more buttons), this time, instead of the 7-button layout you all should know about by now, they will be returning to a simpler 5-button control, because apparently Activision and Genius couldn't think of two more colors (Yes, the color scheme is, AGAIN, Green, Red, Yellow, Blue, Orange, in that oh so familiar order.) It looks like it could be interesting; it looks pretty. Genius just confirmed the first tracks in it. They include artists like The Beasite Boys, The Black Eyed Peas, The Gorillaz, Run DMC, Nelly, and Kanye West, but I ask you, do any of those sound like they could be better than Lovely Trans Pop? (No.) DJ Hero and Scratch: The Ultimate DJ are both set to drop more of the same colored beats on the PS3 and 360 later this year.
