Just Dance 2 sales reach 5 million units worldwide

The motion dance category seems to be hitting its stride while the rock gaming genre continues to suffer.

After Ubisoft revealed that Michael Jackson: The Experience has surpassed two million units sold, it brings word that Just Dance 2, its latest wand-jamming dance sim for the Wii, has sold through more than five million units worldwide. To date the entire lineup of Just Dance titles – Just Dance, Just Dance 2 and Just Dance Kids – have sold more than an estimated ten million units worldwide.

Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft North America said via a written statement that “the Just Dance franchise has revitalized the videogame music category with consumers worldwide joining the dance movement.”

Is the success of the dance genre enough to right the ship? Have you helped the cause by purchasing any recent dance titles?
