Released to Japanese arcades in 1998, the DDR series has been credited as one of the earliest rhythm games that gained worldwide success. The PlayStation release, originally available only for Japanese systems, was such a heavily imported title that when the American release finally hit, it too became a bona fide hit, showing people that a game with a peripheral can be successful in the game market.
Since then, DDR has spread to as many platforms as possible from the PlayStation family to the Xbox family to the Nintendo home consoles. Even the PC saw a few versions of the official game before the knockoffs took over. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of a series that some schools recommend for their PE classes, Konami has released DanceDanceRevolution Universe 3 for the Xbox 360. With the first two titles getting a lukewarm reception at best, will the third time be the series' charm on Microsoft's white box?"
