3rd - better than X One 6 7.69%
 
not in the top 3 7 8.97%

Hahaaaaa, that was a good title thread joke. You got me at the end.

As for the Switch versions dethroning the Wii ones, I wonder at this point if the Dance series is still popular these days...

If you're not counting spinoffs then yes ... 



Wii had ~50 million female users, who are less likely to care about graphics and the latest trends. When/if they migrate, there will be social effect and the game will do well on Switch. Sometimes it seems like people only upgrade to a new system every two generations - because if you don't play that many games and don't spend much cash on games, why not keep playing your PS1 til 2005 or your NES til 1996 or your Wii til 2016? The successful systems all end up with 500 - 1500 games, its not like you can really run out of content if you have broad tastes and the costs are low enough.

Not a clue.. All I know is I'm looking forward to this coming out so I can hopefully pick up Just Dance 2017 super cheap as it'll hopefully knock its price down significantly. Had a good time playing it but I refuse to spend more than like 20 bucks on it.

Would be a lot more than that, actually. For consoles like the Wii, the actual userbase far exceeds the level of individual ownership. Which is why you had so many more people owning DS while nearly all of them had a Wii in their hosuehold.

Just speaking for myself, my wife, and my kids (who still use it to this day), and a number of friends who may or may not own a Wii - people over to party and play games like Just Dance. The Wii was the party machine.

I love this video. If you ever thought Americans danced even worse than Easterners, watch this and you'll take it back, holy fuck!

Yes sure, why would they drop the platform it sells best so far?

Huh, TheSource is still alive, nice to see you posting on this forum. Feels like 2008/09 again.

The point with the female demographics is interesting. I don't have numbers, but I doubt Switch attracted that much female gamers. Will be interesting to watch how it unfolds.

Truth about the successful systems being playable years after their "death" in core-gamers viewpoint.
