Harmonix announced today that it will be making some more tracks and dance routines available to players of its Kinect dancing title, Dance Central, this week. The update, launching in the game’s online store tomorrow, will feature music from The Pussycat Dolls, Rupee and Timbaland. Up first is The Pussycat Dolls’ 2005 debut single, Don’t Cha feat. Busta Rhymes (apparently it was produced by Cee-Lo Green. Who knew?!?). That track is followed up by Rupee’s Tempted to Touch and Timbaland’s The Way I Are, from his second album.

The tracks will be available for a price of 240 Microsoft Points each, which, if you don’t recall, works out to $3 USD per song. I’m pretty sure that makes Dance Central tracks the most expensive downloadable content in the entire video game industry, likely only topping out Rock Band DLC. Since Rock Band DLC is available without the Pro upgrades automatically enabled, it typically works out to $1 USD lower per track. So how do you feel about that? Does the ability to play a track rather than just listen to it justify paying an extra two to three dollars per song?
