Activision has announced three new music titles to launch this autumn - Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero and DJ Hero.

DJ Hero, described as "groundbreaking", is a clever way to get lucre out of those more into their hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance, rather than guitar-based music.

Introducing an all-new turntable controller, DJ Hero promises to "transform players into DJs who rule the club scene by creating original mixes of popular songs and music from the world's most exciting artists and DJs".

Guitar Hero 5 is more of the same from the franchise, and will offer the ability to drop in and out of songs and change band members, instruments and difficulty levels on the fly.

The franchises' first E10+ rated console game, Band Hero is said to "deliver an exciting music collection featuring top-40 hits designed to expand the experience to a new genre and appeal to a broad family audience who can play together on the guitar, drums, bass and microphone".
