DJ Max Portable 3 Introduces Three Track Remixing System

By Spencer . August 6, 2010 . 1:35pm

Pentavision gave DJ Max Portable an overhaul by creating a three track remixing system for DJ Max Portable 3. The new interface has notes flying in the center of the screen plus two remix panels on the left and right.


Here’s a demo video with the song “Out Law Reborn”.

  • So this is replacing the “spin the nub continuously” notes?If so…awesome. Those always felt finicky.Looks hype. (Sounds hype too.)

  • MisterNiwa

    I would probaly get it if they wouldn’t do some ultra special disturbing effects everytime the REMIX FEATURE is activated.

    • ZeroBlitz

      Yeah… I don’t think that actually happens in-game… ^^;

    Smart marketing with the sexy anime girls that I assume have nothing to do with anything in-game. Anyways it got me to watch the trailer and holy hell, the game looks terrible. It’s also got terrible Persona-like music.

    • ZeroBlitz

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. Sure the vid was poorly directed to say the least but the DJ Max Portable series is the best on the PSP and many consider DJM to be the best rhythm games out there.

      The ‘anime girls’ are actually part of one or more of the fully animated videos that come with every single track.

    • ZeroBlitz

      Here’s a better example of what the game looks like:

        I’m not someone that gets impressed by some crazy hard mode footage like that. The music wasn’t any better and it just looked like he was spazzing out. I like quirky rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven or simple stuff like Project Diva. This doesn’t appeal to me. I didn’t mean to sound like an ass but the trailer was terrible I was just judging what was shown.

        • MisterNiwa

          Well you were just judging as a person who doesnt really know anything about this game, nothing else.
          Your first comment showed everyone that you are not qualified to talk about the game in any way, that includes trashtalking.

        • ZeroBlitz

          That wasn’t meant to be an example of ‘some crazy hard mode footage’ or anything. In fact, there’s many songs far harder. Like I said, don’t judge the game based on that trailer…

          Don’t you think it’s hypocritical to claim the music sucks like you have refined taste and then say you prefer something simple like Project Diva (all vocaloid music…)? Admittedly, the vid I posted is playing one of my least favourite tracks but it was the first decent example of gameplay I came across.

          Better music and (to prove my earlier point) a much more difficult track:

          But seriously, try it before you diss it. If you do, I promise you’ll take back your insults – it’s the most addicting game on PSP. DJMP2 or Hot Tunes are the ones to start with.

    • Whether you like the way the game plays or not…it’s always a really bad idea to dismiss the entire soundtrack of a music game based on one song.

    • ShinNoKami

      Terrible… Persona-like… music?

      Ah well, to each his own, I suppose.

    • Hi. Welcome to a genre you’re not familiar with. Kindly leave.

  • JustAnotherTraveler

    I love DJ Max games, but I have no clue what is going on here. Are you supposed to switch to what part of the screen you’re playing on or something?

    • Yeah. Hold the analog nub right or left to switch to the right or left tracks.

      It’s a little hard to see due to how ADHD the video is, but you can see the player’s thumb moving accordingly at about 1:10.

  • I cannot WAIT for this. 3.2 button mode seems… interesting.

  • Wow. That’s pretty badass. Can’t wait :D
