By Andrew Shin

The gaming industry in Ontario, Canada continues to grow with today's exciting announcement that Toronto based Bedlam Games has been chosen to complete the development of the much anticipated Scratch: The Ultimate DJ game, a joint venture between Numark Industries, LLC and Genius Products, LLC. Commotion Interactive, a division of Bedlam Games created specifically to focus on developing music and party games will work on Scratch: The Ultimate DJ.

“With Scratch: The Ultimate DJ we will deliver an innovative, ground breaking video game for fans of hip-hop,” said Jack O’Donnell, CEO of Scratch DJ Game, LLC. “We have selected Commotion and are confident that they are the best choice to help us achieve our mission. The team’s rich and varied development experience includes talent from Rockstar Games, Ubisoft, and Electronic Arts.”

“Scratch: The Ultimate DJ offers a revolutionary take on the existing music/rhythm genre. The combination of the game and the proprietary Scratch Deck controller will bring the art of DJing to the masses,” said Trevor Fencott, CEO of Bedlam Games Inc. “The Scratch Deck combines a touch sensitive turntable from Numark with the drumpads from the iconic Akai Professional MPC. This combination delivers an authentic music gaming experience unlike any other. We are thrilled to embark on this venture with Scratch, and can’t wait for this exciting title to hit store shelves.”

Scratch: The Ultimate DJ will be released in early 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
