Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Gangnam Style in 8-bit graphics

The horsey dance is now better with Kinect … possibly.

Developer Harmonix announced that it’s bringing several popular songs to its Dance Central 3 game for Xbox 360. The international phenomenon “Gangnam Style” from Korean rapper Psy is the biggest get for the dancing game. Konami previously announced it locked down the Korean pop song for Just Dance 4. Now, fans of both games can scream at butts and shimmy like Psy.

Harmonix also announced that singer Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” will also debut in Dance Central 3. Other artists set to release songs on the motion-control game include Justin Bieber, One Direction, and LMFAO. All of these hits are downloadable content. Harmonix has not provided a release date for any of the tracks.

Harmonix promises that, as with all the songs it imports into Dance Central 3, it’ll work hard to bring the authentic dance moves and choreography.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go pound this song out of my head with a hammer. Heeeeey, sexy lady….
