Ubisoft announced last month that its Wii public humiliation simulator Just Dance
had sold two million copies
worldwide. Now, based on data from the March NPD report
, analyst Ben Schachter estimates that one million copies have been sold in the US alone between the game's November release and the end of March. That's ... a lot of people loading up a cover version of "Womanizer" on their TVs.
236,000 of those copies of Dance
were purchased just last month in the US. In contrast, Ubisoft's new
Wii release, Red Steel 2
, moved 50,000 copies
(though it was released on March 23
, in all fairness). We look forward to the inevitable knockoffs from other publishers. Anyone for a round of Strictly Toe Tappin'
? No? How about We Wiggle Rhythmically
? Or Dance Dance Revol
-- oh ... right
