How Many Hours Danced? Just Dance 2's One Year Report


Coffee Beans
     Just Dance 2 was released on October 12, 2010 with a MSRP of $39.99.  The game was a sequel to the original Wii hit Just Dance, which released in 2009.
     The game was developed by Ubisoft Paris, and published by Ubisoft, and it received an "Everyone 10+" rating from the ESRB with "Lyrics, Mild Suggestive Themes" listed as content for gamers/parents to be aware of.

     How many hours have Wii owners reported dancing with Just Dance 2, with 370 days possibly reported?  Let's take a look!

Have you played all three Just Dance games?
The Brew
     Just Dance 2 now has about 293,825 Wii owners that have reported game-play data through the Nintendo Channel, compared to 10,067 Wii owners when the game-play data debuted for it on November 22, 2010.
     The game's average play-time per dance session/day reported is now 1 Hour 11 Minutes.
     Just Dance 2 can currently be purchased new from Amazon.com for $34.99 with free shipping, and from GameStop.com for $39.99.
     Just Dance 2 has seen an increase of more than 900 customer reviews on Amazon.com since last November, and now has 997 customer reviews.

Filtered Thoughts
     I have yet to play a Just Dance game, but I am still impressed by the community of gamers the series has created; and I'm interested to see how Just Dance 3, which was just released, performs overall compared to Just Dance and Just Dance 2.
     Below is a trailer from Just Dance 2, which was released as part of the game's advertisement campaign in Europe:


     Seeing Just Dance 2 with more than 3 million "Total Hours" reported in a year, I think is really incredible for a third party Wii game, and especially one that does not have any sort of online multiplayer aspect.
     Just Dance 2 took 42 days to debut, and I am watching to see if Just Dance 3 will beat it; or if perhaps with Just Dance 3 being the first multi-console release for the series, if the reported Wii data might take a little longer to debut.

Questions
     Have any of you played Just Dance 2, and if so, was it the first game you played in the series?  Also, about how many hours have you played Just Dance 2 if you own it?
     As I asked in the image caption above, have any of you played all three Just Dance games?

  1. I've got both Just Dance 2 and 3, and Just Dance 3 is the better game, slightly. It's got a slightly better, more rounded selection of music, and the dance moves are slightly better choreographed to appeal to everyone.

    It is only slighly better though, both games are great.

    Pretty impressed that the average play time is over an hour. That implies some people played this game for far longer than that, and it's a good workout.

  2. @MattS:
    Kind of interesting, just today I saw the Kinect Just Dance 3 trailer, and it looks pretty interesting...though I really do wonder if the accuracy thing is something that may not be as appealing as the Wii version, since the Kinect version can register different body part motions, and not simply Wii Remote input.

    But yea, the average play time being over an hour I thought was very good for this type of game. More than an hour of dancing I would imagine is a great workout!

    Thanks for the comment/feedback!
