So back to the original posit that this newest generation of consoles is filling up with HD remakes. At a cost of $1.99 per track times ten tracks, you are essentially getting the game for free and the tracks at half price. This update to the Xbox One costs less than two cups of coffee and is far more than just a new coat of paint. Come for the new and improved features, stay for the far better soundtrack.

Fans might be a bit upset with lack of of game modes and mini-games that usually get packed into a Dance Central title but this price I think they'll be able to appreciate the trade-off. It's definitely worth picking up if you want something fun to do with your Kinect besides telling it to go to Netflix.

Dance Central Spotlight seems like a logical next step for Harmonix. It's a safe release that's not tied down to an expensive physical copy, but rather a small serving that looks to be the appetizer to a build-your-own dinner combo comprised of only the delectable songs that fit your musical taste.

Dance Central Spotlight may not break the mold when it comes to being the ultimate next-gen experience, but it does provide a comfortable groove that fans will no doubt want to slip back into – especially as far as the new price point is concerned. $10 is a good value, and being able to add songs and DLC at your own free will is a nice freedom to have. Although, seriously, "Turn Down For What." That's a party in itself.
