DJ Max Technika Testing On The East Coast, Hits Arcades Starting In March

By Spencer . February 4, 2009 . 9:34am


Now that DJ Max Fever is out the door PM Studios is turning their attention towards DJ Max Technika. The arcade version of DJ Max is built with a touch screen and vibrating floor. Players tap notes similar to Elite Beat Agents to hit them. DJ Max Technika made its US premiere in Southern California and cabinets are beginning to head eastbound. Eight on the Break in Dunellen, New Jersey just got one.


More locations should have Technika soon. PM Studios plans to release of DJ Max Technika in North America this March. No specific locations have been announced, but we should hear some news after arcade operators preorder machines.

  • I didn’t enjoy this game that much but one thing I loved about it is the speaker under the little stage you stand on to play the game, it’s very bassy so kinda like force feedback. I think it just takes some getting used to, I wouldn’t turn down a chance to play it again but i’d much rather fill the Ubeat machine with my money than this.

    A little off topic here–but I bought DJ Max Fever, it was my first experience with the franchise and I really wish it came with a tutorial. Eventually I went into the control options and figured out which buttons I was supposed to be using that way–which, I dunno, maybe that’s totally obvious in retrospect but it wasn’t to me–but a quick tutorial screen really would have helped.

    Ok I’m confused, I was just there and they didn’t have it! As soon as I heard news about this (around 2pm) I went there before I went to work. I even called before I went there and they said they had it! WTF!

    Here’s hoping they get GameWorks and D&Bs to carry it.

  • When you think of 8 on the Break, you think that they test all the games. I saw this and I was in for a shocker. When I played this, it made me reminisce of an iPod touch, ala Tap Tap Revenge 2. I would see an iPod touch/iPhone port in the near future…

    The only thing I don’t understand about new music games, especially if they came from overseas, is song selection. I want to play ALL songs and see what I like. Then you find the perfect song to play and realize that, even if you are a complete newbie at the game, the song is waaaaaaaaay too tough, i.e. too fast or too many notes to tap to.

    Still though… ala GameInformer… music games will be obsolete. Thank Konami for starting it… AND ENDING ITG2!!! D:
