Did a search, couldn't find anything.

Seems Konami are to release a new DDR for the PS3:



Yes, DanceDanceRevolution fans, it’s true—we’re bringing DDR to the PS3! And we’re bringing YOU to the launch party. Thursday evening, August 12, in LA. Join us in person, on Twitter, or on Facebook for exclusive, interactive, fan-friendly, multiplayer Music & Motion fun. Stay tuned for more exciting details.

Just went up on their facebook page. (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/konami?ref=ts) and on twitter (https://twitter.com/konami_ddr)

edit (10/08/2010) more info courtest of gofreak and Eurogamer:

For the first time in the history of the franchise, DanceDanceRevolution PS3 will feature a truly interactive dance experience via PlayStation Move as it challenges players to use both their hands and feet simultaneously - providing the most rhythmic and realistic dancing experience yet on PlayStation 3!

Additionally, compatibility with the PlayStation EYE allows players to take pictures of their room and add dance club components to transport their home into a virtual club.

The game, due out later this year, will come with 25 new original songs by Konami's in-house artists, as well as 25 "famous" licensed tracks.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-supports-move

Honestly about bloody time. I, for one, am hugely excited.

Maybe they'll even support Müve?

Excited for this, I thought DDR would never leave the arcade any more.

Day one if it supports "move" or rather the ps3eye in a way that I don't have to get a dance pad. You, know it can be done Konami, and I would think they increased sales would make up for whatever cash you get for said dance pads.

Some detail. It's coming this year, although it's not clear if that's for Japan or worldwide. 25 original tracks from Konami's in-house artists, and 25 licensed tracks:

"For the first time in the history of the franchise, DanceDanceRevolution PS3 will feature a truly interactive dance experience via PlayStation Move as it challenges players to use both their hands and feet simultaneously - providing the most rhythmic and realistic dancing experience yet on PlayStation 3!" reads an excitable press release.

"Additionally, compatibility with the PlayStation EYE allows players to take pictures of their room and add dance club components to transport their home into a virtual club." Banging.

Excellent, I've always found the DDR series to be much more enjoyable fitness games than actual dedicated fitness games (and thus I'm much more likely to stick with it). Now all I need is a converter that would allow me to plug my PS2 dance mats into my PS3 - does such a thing exist?

I'm guessing standard PS2 to USB adapters made for the PC would work. Might want to wait till it comes out for confirmation on that, but the PS3 accepts most gamepads through USB anyways.

50 songs, on a Blu-Ray disc, really Konami? Ugh. The rumor around E3 last year was that there would be something like the Singstore where they would put up all the DDR songs and you could download them. I hope that this still is in the works. I'd much rather have this than some ridiculous PSEye or Kinect or Move functionality.

DDR is about smashing arrows, it's never been about dancing. Embrace what it is, and maximize that. Don't shoehorn crap into it that's uninteresting. Give me a set list as awesome as the Extreme setlist from the arcade, put it onto a home disc, and let me flail away. Hopefully it works with USB converters so I can use my nice pad. If they actually did a store and it had reasonable prices per song, I'd probably buy a metal pad, too.

But hey, Konami has sucked most of this generation and I don't expect that to change now. Please give me IIDX Sirius on the PS3 :(

Well, back when I used Stepmania it wasn't nearly as nice as DDR, nor did it have the same timing windows. Maybe that's changed now but I don't know. I bought the JPS2/PS1 DDR games and those scratch my itch.

But US versions have always been weak, how many 15+ songs will this game have? And where's my X2?

It wasn't a rumor, it was a trailer. They had said 150 songs @ launch from past games.

I don't want Move, or crappy licensed tracks from America. All I want is DLC from the past games.

Here's hoping it actually is a quality game that doesn't require motion controls and has lots of old Konami Originals and J-Pop tunes available for DLC. I'm quite surprised they announced that half the built-in songs are originals, the last few releases have been VERY license-heavy.

A large part of that lag was probably upconverting the PS2 to your TV's native resolution. As long as the PS3 game can render at your TV's native resolution, it should be fine. Also, the PS2 games have options to adjust the timing, you should play around with that to try and sync it up.

well if they sell the DLC as all songs from each disc for $20 I would buy it all. (well nothing beyond Extreme 2 :lol)

Knowing Konami lately, it's really hard to tell if including "Never Gonna Give you Up" by Rick Astley is a clue to it being a fanmade trailer or not.
