'Dance Central: Spotlight' launching for Xbox One on Sept. 2 for just $10

"Dance Central: Spotlight," the newest entry in Harmonix's popular Kinect franchise, will make its way to Xbox One on Sept. 2 for just $10.

An announcement on the official Xbox Wire website states the base game will come with 10 songs, while an additional 50 songs will be available for download in the game's store at launch. Additionally, content purchased for previous Dance Central games on Xbox 360 will also be compatible with "Spotlight," and Microsoft says they can be "easily loaded into the forthcoming game." The 10 tracks that will come with the base game are as follows:

  • Avicii – "Wake Me Up" 
  • Cher Lloyd – "I Wish"
  • David Guetta featuring Sia – "Titanium"
  • Jason Derulo featuring 2 Chainz – "Talk Dirty"
  • Kid Ink ft. Chris Brown – "Show Me"
  • Lorde – “Royals”
  • OneRepublic – "Counting Stars"
  • Pharrell Williams – "Happy" 
  • Rihanna – “Diamonds”
  • will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber – "#thatPOWER"

"Dance Central Spotlight" will serve as one of the few Kinect-required games released thus far for Microsoft's Xbox One console, following Rare's "Kinect Sports Rivals." Rare's game saw poor sales, leading to the studio laying off more than a dozen employees. Kinect itself has an unclear future in Microsoft's plans as well, with the company releasing a version of Xbox One without the sensor for $399.

The previous entries in the Dance Central franchise were met with critical acclaim and strong sales, though it may be difficult for the new game to combat the tepid response to the Xbox One's Kinect sensor.

I can't believe people keep blaming Microsoft over this, isn't good to buy game cheap like this and then buy only songs that you love later instead of buying it with tons of songs that you don't love for 60$

$1 per song in the base game isn't a lot of money really, especially if you get plenty of enjoyment from each of them. Though I think for the digital version they should let you choose your initial batch of 10 songs.. there's nothing like getting a game like this, and only really liking 2 or 3 of the songs.

So basically Freemium model on console, except rather than free a significantly reduced cost and significantly reduced content
