In The Groove

Intersting (well, to me at least), it looks like Red Octane is trying to one-up Konami and put out their own DDR type game, "In the Groove". It will be interesting to see how this shakes out since Red Octane is making a very western style dance game; will Konami still find it worthwhile to put out DDR games in the U.S.? Probably, but I read that Konami doesn't put out DDR arcade games in the U.S. and that the DDR Extreme arcade games floating around are boots from Japan (and those that aren't boots are OLD). This may also explain why Dave and Busters has 'Pump It Up' (i.e. Korean DDR), but not DDR.

This makes me wonder since when I went to the arcade recently, many of the arcade games looked very roughly translated (i.e., if it didn't directly apply to the gameplay, it was Kana).
