UK: Just Dance 2020 sells more on Wii than PS4/Xbox One

Forums - Sales Discussion - UK: Just Dance 2020 sells more on Wii than PS4/Xbox One

A bit surprised that PS4 version started outselling the Xbox One version. Kinect discontinuation probably killed any interest in the game on Xbox platforms.

Why? I really couldn't care less how well the Just Dance series does, so why would I wish it were dead?

And there's nothing genius about it. If one of your biggest fanbases is on a console that is yonks old and barely anybody uses, let alone buys new games for, then clearly your fanbase has declined masssively. I mean, maybe I'm wrong and it still sold massively well despite that... but it debuted at #15... in the UK... which probably means it was sub 5k in sales. For a game that at it's peak sold over 10m on a single platform. Yep, massive decline indeed.

Really, then why the hell are you in this thread?

Then maybe I shouldn't care to reply? Here, do the rest yourself:



But the hardcore gamers told me that everyone's Wii's were collecting dust since 2008.

You're upset that people can read and comment on threads about things that they have no positive or negative emotional attachment to? Why? You want exclusively circle jerk or fanboy war threads? That sounds like a poor excuse for a forum to me. I prefer one on which people with neutral opinions can discuss things too...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Nobody's talking about JD emotional attachment. Your first post was crap, and the numbers are to explain that it was wrong.

What was your logic anyway? The Wii is old and therefore the sales are crap?

If I weren't blind I would say that you were bothered by the fact that the "awesome" new consoles were outperformed by the Wii, and tried to downplay the record.

Of course you will deny it.

This tells volumes about why the Wii was such a fad when it came out. It was mostly bought to be used in party situations with friends and family, bringing in a lot of casuals.

That just suggests to me that the Just Dance series is pretty dead now.

I was surprised last week to know they will include a Belgian song in Just dance especially when it is in Dutch.

Looked it up and saw it is only the Benelux version that will get the song and Just dance Ultimate subscribers.

I had to look it up but if you subscribe (30$ a year) you get all regional songs + from older games (surpassed 500 songs).

Apparently they have a lot of subscribers.

A proof that wii wasn't really collecting dust and was abandoned prematurely, just because sales stopped being astronomical and went to normal heights, Nintendo panicked or something else...
Wii could have sold more than what wii u sold in two years, in 2013...

yeah. Nintendo abandoned wii in 2011, it's known.

My first post was just stating the obvious. How many previous games where one of their biggest platforms was a console with not 1, but 2 succesors, have actually sold well overall?

It's a bad thing, fact. It shows that the audience has largely stopped gaming (obvious due to the massive decline in sales) or has mostly not moved on to newer consoles (and given that there's been 2 succesors already probably won't either). So yeah, the franchise may not literally be dead, but compared to the juggernaut that it once was it most certainly is.

Your first post however was just an attack on me. You didn't try to counter my position, because you can't. I mean, will the game even sell 1m across 4 platforms? From a franchise that could once sell 10m+ on a single platform? How can you not call that dead? Nope, you just attacked my motives for posting. But guess what, this is still a sales forum, people are going to comment on sales and when sales have declined massively people are going to make negative posts about that. It doesn't mean they hate a game or want it to fail, they're just pointing out the obvious decline that it's experienced.

That line was always just saltiness from neckbeards who were bitter that their almighty HD consoles were being outsold by the Wii.
