The Kinect will be here soon, and of course there’s games coming for it. One is a dance game called Dance Central, that’s exactly what it sounds like, a Dance Game but it utilizes the Kinect motion sensing system to play the game.

“We felt it was very important to launch Dance Central with a balanced selection of the latest, greatest and all-time classic tracks,” said Paul DeGooyer, Senior Vice President of Music, Electronic Games and Programming for MTV Networks. “The setlist on the disc really achieves that goal, offering everything from “jerking” to disco, from Rihanna to Young MC. Whatever your jam, we think you’ll find something to get you moving in this contagiously fun soundtrack.”
