“Gangnam Style” steps to Dance Central 3 this month


If you haven’t noticed, there’s been a new jam that’s been all the rage lately, PSY’s “Gangnam Style.” While the song is undoubtedly catchy, its music video has inspired people all around the world to get their bodies moving in a whole new way and countless parody videos, flash mobs and fan videos have flooded YouTube ever since its release.

It comes as no surprise that “Gangnam Style” has been one of the most requested songs for Dance Central 3 this year and Harmonix has heard your request, and is bringing the craziness of “Gangnam Style” to Dance Central's servers on November 27th. That’s only one week away!

While you wait and to get your mood flowing in true ‘gangnam style,’ check out my personal favourite “Gangnam Style” YouTube video before jumping into the full Press Release (which includes this week's releases from Usher) below:
