UPDATE: Harmonix has announced Dance Central: Spotlight at E3. It's a digital-only (download only) game that's coming this September. Harmonix boss Alex Rigopulos said the game had new technology that gets music tracks into the game faster than ever before. This should mean more, newer content and more often.
