The DJ Hero 2 song list is now available

Finally we get confirmation of all 83 mixes to be included in DJ Hero 2 when it releases on October 19. After reading the list I’ll have to say I like what I see and look forward to being able to take the songs for a spin since I own and liked the first one on Wii. Any other takers?

Playstation Move: First Thoughts Move Controller VS Wiimote

Well, I went and purchased my Move bundle + extra controller. While I am stuck here at work i have been playing with the controller ever since I opened it. The controller has a GREAT feel and the weight is almost too perfect. the buttons are all very well placed and the Orb on the top seems like it will eliminate the need for any protective jackets. The rounded shape fits very well in the hands.

One thing that I like compared to the Wiimote is there are no buttons under your palm, and all the buttons are very familiar. The start and select buttons are within easy reach, as compared to a + – or House icon button. The white orb on top seems to take the place of the Tumor that you slip on to the wiimote. ┬áThe T-button (trigger) is smooth, and comfortable. Overall the controller seems to be a HUGE improvement over the wiimote.

WiiMote
