DJ Hero, Band Hero, GH5 for autumn

Activision confirms melody of titles.

Activision has said Guitar Hero 5, DJ Hero and Band Hero will be out this autumn, confirming our report from March.

No platforms are mentioned by the publisher and few details are offered, however. We've heard all three games are in development for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.

Activision does offer that Guitar Hero 5 will let us drop in and out of songs, as well as change band members, instruments and difficulty levels on the fly.

DJ Hero has a a turntable peripheral we popped pictures of in a gallery earlier. Activision says players will be able to create their own mixes from a slew of music covering hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance.

Finally, Band Hero be a more casual affair to ensnare the iPod-wearing youth with a selection of top-40 hits. The game will use drum, bass, microphone and guitar.

We'll let you know more when we do.
