Activision Readying DDR Competitor, Dance Hero?

And so, the music wars continue.

After producing what many consider to be one of the first instrument-driven music games with Guitar Freaks, Konami has finally decided to plunge back into the genre with Rock Revolution, which releases on October 14. They're hoping it will pose stiff competition to the likes of Activision's Guitar Hero and Harmonix's Rock Band. But wait, Konami has Dance Dance Revolution...and Activision appears to want a piece of that pie, too. According to GameSpot, Activision Blizzard has filed an application to officially trademark "Dance Hero" with the US Patent and Trademark Office. When approved, the trademark would allow Activision access to "computer game software," "interactive video game programs," and "downloadable computer game software." Of course, none of this constitutes an official announcement, but it certainly makes sense. These days, if you don't have at least some small stake in the music/rhythm genre (from instruments to dancing), you're definitely missing out.

We'll just have to wait and see when and if Activision decides to unveil a game called Dance Hero. If they do, all those DDR freaks out there will throw a party in honor of the impending momentous event...we know how nutty you guys can get; just admit it. :)

I play DDR, and I can't see myself playing any type of knock off or alternative version. I really do wish the PS3 got the newest version like the 360 and Wii did.

yeah. you can't beat DDR. they have used tons of songs and many people play it. Konami can make any type of game and it will be fantastic. i have yet to see a disappointing Konami game.
