Microsoft confirmed today that it will cost Dance Central players 400 Microsoft Points to import tracks into Dance Central 2 when it launches in late October. Dance Central owners will need to enter a code from the original game's manual then download an "Import Pack" to move songs over to the new game. Of course, those who pre-order the game can get a voucher that gives them the Import Pack for free. Of course if you're Dance Central game is second-hand (meaning you weren’t the first owner) then the whole "code in the manual" scheme flies out the window.
"Import codes are unique to each game manual included with the original Dance Central and are one time use," notes the Xbox.com website. "Consumers will need to purchase a new retail copy of Dance Central to take advantage of the import functionality."
On a positive note (if there is one in this story) DLC tracks purchased for Dance Central will automatically be available in your Dance Central 2 library.
