Scratch: The Ultimate DJ (for Xbox 360 and PS3) will be going head to head this fall against Activision’s upcoming DJ Hero video game and now we have a first look at Scratch’s controller.
The “Scratch Deck” controller is a collaboration between Numark and electronics manufacturer Genius. It allows for realtime turntable mixing, while five promised-to-be-authentic Akai Pro MPC-style drum pads trigger various samples. A crossfader, USB mic and right/left-handed controls round out the options while the game allows players to battle it out “in distinctive urban environments.”
