DJ Hero controller

There’s something weird about all this, don’t you think? The complexity gap between the gadget and its Hero controller has shrunk–even as it powers-up the brain-melting recursive virtuality of toy instruments controlling virtual representations of real instruments using a frenetic crypto-performance that it itself staggeringly hard to master.

How long until Guitar Hero Hero? How long until we have Game Hero, in which an on-screen character plays a game, and you have a game controller modeled on a game controller? And where Jean Baudrillard punches you in the dick when you lose.

    why do i have the feeling it will make loud clacking noises like the guitar hero controllers?

    the weirdest thing is that there are some people who hate the Rockband controllers for not being noisy as heck

    Baudrillard is dead though, so it would be his avatar or his skeleton, punching you in the dick.

    I recall having something like this for BeatMania back in the day. Maybe it was a Japan only thing. Thats embarrassing come to think of it. This kinda thing is OK in the hands of a 10 year old but thats about the limit.
