DJ Hero Turntable Controller Better Than Beatmania?

It looks like our friends over at Destructoid are up on the whole Twitter thing. I can barely keep track of a few friends much less all the accounts for game developers and even individual games. They’ve reported that shots of the controller for the upcoming DJ Hero rhythm title from Activision were posted on the official DJ Hero Twitter page this morning. While it looks interesting, I don’t quite understand what you’re supposed to do with it. I guess you press a button and move the “ring” that it’s embedded in like you would a turntable?

Anyway, one can’t help but compare the controller to the only other DJ-like input device out there, which is the turn table from Beatmania. While Beatmania’s version is rather simple, as it was a secondary input to the keyboard buttons, it would have been cool to see multiple turntables in DJ Hero. Then again, I know nothing about scratching, so maybe this is a more realsitic input method? Be sure to watch for coverage of this title in the coming month, are we’re hoping it will be playable at E3 this year.

What do you guys think of the turntable controller for DJ Hero? Are you looking forward to this game at all?
