Gearbox and Harmonix have worked together in the past with a dance section in one of last year's trailers for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. At the PAX East Inside Gearbox panel, Gearbox and Harmonix announced a new p...

Dance Central Spotlight is a new Xbox One Kinect dancing title. The idea is to keep the focus on dancing and music, serving as a sort of follow-up to the hit Xbox 360 title Dance Central. The difference here is that Spotligh...
In a shocking turn of events, after 275 straight week of DLC, Harmonix announced that Rock Band would cease offering new content. Now, it seems as if its other major franchise, Dance Central, will be following suit "for ...

[In this guest blog written by Dance Central superfan David Nguyen, we're given a look at how he was able to go from cosplaying and creating some mash-up art for the fun of it to working with developer Harmonix on the pixel-...
I'm going to be straight with you on this blog post. I like Dance Central 3 and all (I got a copy for my niece for Christmas), and Carly Rae Jespen is great, but I really just posted this story to have another excuse to shar...
Urrrrsherrrrr? Say his name correctly, you idiot! In the coming weeks you'll see a couple of fun track additions to Dance Central 3. The biggest of the bunch is PSY's "Gangnam Style," though you'll have to wait until November...
You had to have known that Psy's "Gangnam Style" was in the works for Dance Central 3. I'll be curious to see what society thinks of the song a decade from now, but for now, Harmonix is getting in on the sensation while the g...
SmatGlass lets your phone or tablet become the most connected remote control ever. Or, in games, turns it into a second screen. All this functionality goes live on October 26, alongside the launch of Windows 8, Windows RT and...

I was having a hard time remembering whether or not Smart Glass is cool, because I feel like I haven’t been primed on the application since Microsoft’s E3 conference -- I’ve already forgotten most of the nea...
The Dance Central franchise took me by surprise. In the very early stages of Kinect, I was extremely skeptical of the tech --  to be blunt, I didn't really believe in it. After testing the first entry at E3, however, I w...

There are a lot of games that let you dance in front of your television, but how many of them tell you an original story while doing so? This new movie trailer for Dance Central 3's Story Mode had me saying 'what?!' over and...
The Burch brood do their best Shabba Doo and Boogalo Shrimp impersonations in the latest Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Can they move to the groove and shake what their mama gave them? Probably not. But give them props for the effort! Also, SUPER SECRET ENDING! Is Ash gonna die? Also probably not. Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? - Dance Central 2 [GameTrailers]
I was both excited and scared when I learned Harmonix would be swinging by the studio last week to show off some of Dance Central 3's new Story mode. Excited at the prospect of upholding my reign of internet humiliation...
With a mostly sorry launch lineup, Kinect's first-year appeal came almost entirely from Dance Central. Since then, it too often feels like this series is solely providing the legs for Microsoft's motion platform. Less than a ...
Do you like to dance in front of a robotic eye bar in your living room? The best way to do that is with the Dance Central series, and it looks like Dance Central 3 will top its predecessors with a story mode and several hot t...
As co-host of The Destructoid Show, I consider it my prerogative - nay, my mission - to embarrass myself on a near daily basis. It's not something I typically take issue with, as long as I can say that at the end of the day,...
The new Dance Central 2 Facebook app lets you check your high scores, compare leaderboard rankings and see how you stack up against your friends (or the world) on individual songs. Go here, get the app, link your gamertag, an...

Been getting enough of the dance game craze yet? Well, I'm sure some of you out there aren't because the dancing games are still selling like crazy. As a result, new DLC is on the way for Dance Central 2 tomorrow and this tim...
More Dance Central 2 DLC is on the horizon and tomorrow's bounty brings more Lady Gaga tunes to shake your groove thing to. "Edge of Glory" and "Marry the Night" from her recent album Born this Way will be available for...
Update: This contest ends tonight!  Good luck! News-wise, people are going nuts for Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim's got a bitchin' soundtrack, Sony's cutting down on game sharing, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Patriots got a...
Today is the last day the entire Dance Central DLC song catalogue is on sale so if you completely forgot about it, but still want that sweet DLC, you better get on it fast. The thing with these DLC songs is that even if you l...
It's Kinect's birthday! I...I didn't get him anything. My week got so busy -- you know how it is.  There is some kind of celebration going on, though. Dance Central's entire song catalog has been discounted on XBLA. Son...
I'm not a dancer. At all. I dance about as well as you'd expect someone that blogs about games for a living to. That said, recently I've seen more and more of my peers dancing at events and other industry functions, and I've ...

If you're a Kinect owner, odds are you own Dance Central. After all, it is, arguably, the best piece of software for the device by a mile. Harmonix did a wonderful job of bringing the well-traveled dance  genre to Kinec...
A handful of new tracks were announced for Dance Central 2 during the PAX Prime festivities. As it turns out, developers, your dance game only needs to reference Humpty Hump to get us to write about it. We go through a checkl...
[Update: We had originally reported Dance Central 2 would be launching on October 21, and while that's true for Asia and Europe, folks in North America will have to wait until October 25. Sorry for the confusion.] The headli...
Three new songs for Dance Central are hitting Xbox Live on August 16th, with the common theme being "Songs that start with 'Get'" this time around. I thought James Brown was dead, but later on it turned out he was still alive...
Now listen to me baby, oh oh-oh! There's new songs for Dance Central, oh oh-oh! They're out to-morrow, oh oh-oh! You might not really care much, oh oh-oh! Here's what's on offer: Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force &...
I love Kinect even if I do only use it for impressing my Mum and playing lots of Dance Central. So what else do you do when you see the Dance Central 2 booth at E3? You grab the most metrosexual guy on staff and play Usher. 
Dance Central 2 has been officially announced with voice control additions and simultaneous multiplayer dancing. With all songs from the original being imported, the game will boast over 100 songs at launch, which Harmonix sa...
