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.

FIFA 13 remains top of the UK all-format charts for a fourth week, seeing off competition from toy phenomenon Skylanders Giants and Bethesda's Doom 3: BFG Edition.
Hello Eurogamer readers, I hope you're enjoying the website you're currently staring at and don't mind Outside Xbox interloping with another weekly update about what we've been up to out in the colonies.
Developer Backbone Entertainment has confirmed a round of layoffs but insisted Midway Arcade Origins remains unaffected.
James North-Hearn, boss of Backbone parent company Foundation 9, told Gamasutra the studio's problems were the result of "a lower demand for conventional console development".
North-Hearn declined to specify the number of layoffs, but insisted the developer will continue to operate at a reduced size and will honour its commitments to existing partners. It had been rumoured that Backbone may be forced to close.
Right. Can't remember if we've mentioned this, but we're doing a show at Earls Court in London next week. It's called the Eurogamer Expo. (Bit pretentious?) Anyway, we hope some of you will come. To help make it more interesting, we've asked Microsoft to bring everything they have in development for Xbox 360 for you to play. They said yes.
So, if you come along you'll be able to sample Halo 4 Infinity Multiplayer, Forza Horizon, Fable: The Journey for Kinect, Gears of War: Judgment's OverRun multiplayer mode, and Dance Central 3, plus various Xbox Live games.
We're also told that "the Mountain Dew crew" will be distributing drinks to people throughout the show. Presumably they'll be distributing Mountain Dew, unless that label is just a massive coincidence.
Kinect-exclusive floor-filler Dance Central 3 will waltz into UK shops on 19th October, Microsoft has announced.
Dance Central 3 will launch with more than 40 tracks, including fly tunes from E3 press conference time-waster Usher and 50 Cent.
You'll also be able to import tunes from Dance Central and Central 2, although Microsoft notes there will be "an additional fee" for doing so. You'll also need Xbox Live and a storage device.
Dance Central 3 is on its way to Xbox 360, Microsoft has announced.
A brief trailer for the third entry in Harmonix's Kinect-ony dance game was shown during Microsoft's E3 show.
No specific new features were mentioned, but Usher did jump on stage to cut a rug. The guy has some moves.
