Just Dance sells 2m, breaks sales records

No, we don't know how either

Ubisoft's Just Dance has sold over two million units worldwide to date, the publisher has announced. Just to put that in recent perspective, that's more than Bayonetta or Heavy Rain.

Okay, so it's not exactly CVG hardcore material - but it's become the fastest-selling new intellectual property from a third-party publisher on Wii.

Just Dance features a track list with more than 30 famous tunes from the '60s to today, including songs by Katy Perry, MC Hammer and the Spice Girls.

According to NPD data, the title was the best-selling music/rhythm game for Wii in the US from December 2009 through February 2010, and is on track to maintain its sales momentum for March.

The title hit No. 1 in the U.K. market, beating well-established hardcore video game franchises.

"The consumer response to Just Dance has been overwhelming," said John Parkes, EMEA marketing director at Ubisoft. "With Just Dance's success we've seen a renewal of the music video game genre, as this is truly a game that is accessible and enjoyable for everyone."
