Not worth that much. They're good rappers and all (overrated but good) but that doesn't mean you should charge an arm and a leg for the songs though. I could get more songs on RB2 or any other game for that price and a little less.
Third track pack for Activision's rhythm game will feature three mash-ups of six songs from the hip-hop impresarios, including "Without Me" vs. "Encore" and "Can I Get A…" vs. "Lose Yourself"; will be available for Wii, PS3, and 360.
In January, Activision declared DJ Hero the "highest-grossing new IP" of 2009 in the US and Europe, even though domestic unit sales were lower than expected at launch. (The game's $120 price tag and the popularity of dance music in Europe likely made up for the slow start.) In the subsequent four-plus months, FreeStyleGames has released two track packs for the well-reviewed rhythm game, including the Extended Mix Pack 01 and the David Guetta Mix Pack 01.
Today, Activision announced a third DJ Hero downloadable content pack will arrive on March 25 on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and the Wii Shop Channel. This one will feature the two high-profile hip-hop artists that helped launch the game at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo last year: New York impresario Jay-Z and Detroit rapper Eminem. Priced at MSP640 or $7.99, the pack will feature three mash-ups of six songs. The mash-ups will be available for the Wii a la carte for 300 Wii Points ($3) each.
"Shake That" by Eminem mixed with "Show Me What You Got" by Jay-Z
"Without Me" by Eminem mixed with "Encore" by Jay-Z
"Can I Get A…" by Jay-Z mixed with "Lose Yourself" by Eminem
The pack will be the second DJ Hero product to offer additional Eminem and Jay-Z content. When the game launched on October 27, it was also available in a $200 Renegade Edition, which featured a hard turntable case/table with extendable legs and a two-CD pack of previously unreleased material from the two artists.
A sequel to DJ Hero is planned for release in the second half of 2010, along with a new Guitar Hero game. They will be the only two rhythm titles Activision releases this year, following what analysts consider a glut of music games from the company in 2009. Slow sales of the game led to Guitar Hero creator RedOctane apparently being all but shut down and the IP reportedly being taken away from Guitar Hero 5 developer Neversoft, which also suffered layoffs.
at least they are not using dlc for milking like other games are to too much dlc that is milking if you think about it.
Asking price is way to much for what you get with this pack. I'm sorry just because its two well known rappers doesn't mean you should charge a premium for it.
yay!!! yeaaa!! this is so G double "O" D!!! hell no!!!! FU activision!! you and your greedy lame as* milking style!!
This sounds amazing! I would totally buy it but... 1. $8 for 3 songs? In RB2 3 songs are $5.50. Seems like EA beat Fail-ivision 2. I swore that DJ Hero would be the last Activision product I'd buy new - so no DLC
I like Hip Hop music, it's just that some of these songs go too far these days. I think people are desperate for "money". >_>
two of the greatest rappers alive (and of all time imo), but not exactly their best tracks. they have songs that are MUCH better. i dont understand why they dont mix their best stuff.
I think this is the best of the music genre games. Hands down... I absolutely loathe the guitar hero / rock bands games though. But this is pure crap! Plus they didn't bother putting JayZ's quote about needing to make cash so that is why they cost so much. Personally I would like to see a little more variety than just JayZ and Eminem.
Cool for the 8 people who own the game I guess. This game always looked interesting, but for my $120, I'll buy a real turntable
@Strawberry, that woulda been EPIC. But rap is not the typical demographic for this game. This is just to cash in on Em fans.
OMG.... yesterday was the anniversary of biggie's death... they could have done something on that, but no.... they go and do stupid things like this
