DJ Qbert to Appear in DJ Hero 2

Filipinos, rejoice! World famous DJ Qbert, he of Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Scratch, the synonymous documentary on turntablism, will be converted into CGI-generated goodness and will appear in Activision’s music based video game, DJ Hero 2.  Which makes sense, right?  The game is essentially Guitar Hero with turntables and fader switches and sampler buttons rather than an electric guitar, and what better way to showcase a turntable than, oh, the three-time DMC World Champion?  I mean, I love Daft Punk — the stars of the original DJ Hero video game — but if we were really had a video game where we tried to emulate how they perform for crowds of tens of thousands, there’d just be a Mac laptop and all you would have to do is press the PLAY button on the one-beat.  (Oh, snap!  I went there.)
