Analyst: DJ Hero Disappoints

Michael Pachter beware, a challenger has risen and is gazing at his balls (crystals ones, of course) to forsee the future. Let us welcome Cowen Group analyst Doug Creutz who has been predicting the sales of games in the United States for October. Doug thinks that overall sales will be down compared to last year due to the lack of big releases and that PS3 hero Nathan Drake sitting at the top of the charts.

Good news too for Borderlands which he predicts to be on track with sales around the 500,000 mark but bad news for DJ Hero which limps in with sales of just 200,000 in the US. According to VGCharts, DJ Hero has only sold 290,000 copies worldwide on all formats (PS3, Xbox, Wii, PS2), by comparison Guitar Hero 3 has sold over 15 million units, 1.4 million units in it’s first month of sales.

With the recent news that Beatles Rockband is only likely to break even and Guitar Hero 5 sales well down the death knell may be sounding for rhythm action games.
