In a recent interview, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed that DJ Hero does exist. The game had been rumored to be in development from a few sources, but nothing was confirmed by Activision up to this point. Unfortunately, Kotick did not discuss platform details. However, that information should be known in the near future.

“We have the product called DJ Hero that’s coming out later this year which is a turntable that you can actually play competitively and spin discs and mix songs.”

“What we are looking at are the cumulative Wii and DS sales through the end of 2008. Wii has been selling at industry’s record pace so far, and with new customers acquired by the gaming population expansion efforts, it is not impossible for Wii’s total sales to exceed the final install base of PS2. Wii still has much more room for expansion. We can expect more sales of software in the next fiscal year than in the current year. With what kind of software is Nintendo going to achieve this goal? Well, it will be shown at E3 to be held in the U.S. this June.”

Okay, so who wants to start guessing what software will be present at this year’s E3? I’m not entirely sure myself, but at least we know Nintendo will probably have a more exciting show this year than they did last year.

“I think it is true that new information penetrates through the Japanese market very quickly and that Japanese people tend to get tired of something new very quickly. It is also true that the population is smaller when compared with that of other major markets, so it is inevitable that the market starts to feel saturated earlier than others. I don’t think any hardware can enjoy eternal life. Someday, we’ll need a new platform for sure, and of course, Nintendo is always preparing for that. However, now that our customer base has expanded this drastically, we do not think it’s appropriate to conclude that past platform lifecycle theory can or should be applied to the current generation.” – Satoru Iwata

“Third party titles sold more [in the U.S.] on Nintendo hardware than on any other platform for two consecutive months. As the hardware expands the installed bases, we are starting to see a cycle where more titles from the third parties are making the million-seller list.” – Satoru Iwata

It would be rather silly for Nintendo to release a new console at this point, but that’s just stating the obvious. I can actually see the Wii remaining on the market for quite some time.
