Just Dance 2 reaches 1m UK sales milestone

Wii music game franchise has sold 10m globally, confirms Ubisoft

Wii title Just Dance 2 has sold over one million copies in the UK alone, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz.

While perhaps not achieving the immediate headline figures of the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption, the Ubisoft Paris-developed rhythm game has been a staple in the retail top ten for much of the past year.

Said a spokesperson, "Ubisoft is proud to confirm that Just Dance 2 has passed the 1 million barrier in the UK.

"Globally the franchise, which includes Just Dance, Just Dance 2 and Just Dance Kids (Dance Junior in UK) has tallied 10 million copies."

Just Dance 2 was released in Europe on October 14 2010, and as of last week was number five in the UK retail charts.

It may have it's haters, but it's the best dancing game when it comes to just having fun, especially at parties. Harmonix should take note.

Well at least Dance Central requires you to move your body to try to accurately do the moves compared to what is required in Just Dance. It`s probably more fun because people can`t fail horrible and get embarrassed because they have no rhythm to follow the prompts compared to wave your controller around do dance.

I know I`m one of them :D

I don`t like that kind of motion games, but still in my opinion Dance Central is a way better product compared to Just Dance.

Isn`t there a dance mini game that requires people to strip? At least there was one in the trailer :D

@ Werner - I think that was implied. The actual gameplay fotage is incongrous with the trailer of young adults up to hijinks :)
