Just Dance 4 will be the home for South Korean pop star Psy's mega-popular track, "Gangnam Style."
You have to believe that Harmonix, the makers of Dance Central, and Ubisoft, the folks behind Just Dance, were at odds over the chance to snag Psy's incredibly popular "Gangnam Style." With Just Dance 4 and Dance Central 3 both releasing in the same year that "Gangnam Style" takes over the world and approaches 500,000,000 views on YouTube, one would expect that both companies wanted the song for their games.
Ubisoft has made it official this morning. Just Dance 4 will feature Psy's "Gangnam Style" as a piece of DLC. The song will be made available sometime in November.
Just Dance 4 is on sale now for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will also be available for the Wii U at the system's launch on November 18th.
