Game developer Commotion Interactive, DJ equipment manufacturer Numark, and home video company Genius Products have joined forces to create Scratch: The Ultimate DJ, an exciting new music/rhythm title for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Coming in 2010, the game will offer armchair turntablists the opportunity to create their own scratches and beats on over 60 licensed hip-hop and R&B tracks, keeping club crowds moving as they rise through the ranks to become ruler of the DJ universe.
