Dance Central tops Kinect's November software sales in US

Dance Central, Harmonix's full-body dance title for Kinect, cha-cha-chinged with sales in November. According to NPD, the game was #11 in overall sales for the month and the top-selling Kinect game as a SKU. Of course, by units, Kinect Adventures moved the most copies, as it was bundled with the peripheral, which sold over 2.5 million units globally in the month of November.

The story is too old to be commented.

color me surprised. I really thought Sports would be #1 for the frist month. Dance Central will have longer legs for sure. Women are bigger sheep than men. Word of mouth is their patent.

It was but it doesn't count since it was bundled with the peripheral. I really want to know who's buying Kinect.

ChristianGamer2844d ago

Adventures was bundled, not Sports. Off topic, doritos crash course, is it worth the free download...anybody?

@ Bigpappy

Colour me too, I would have thought families would be more lured towards something like Kinect Sports/Kinect Joyride.

@StanLee

ChristianGamer is right, it's Adventures that come bundled.
Also I am one of the Kinect/Dance Central Buyers.

@Sega Kin and that's where your plan goes wrong...it does work, and that's why its continuing to sell well.

@sagakin

I think you haven't play the game.

I thought Dance central work the best out of all kinect games. It can litterally detects anything (you really have to dance, you cant cheat) I was quite surprise by it. At times, i wanted to suggest MS to let harmonix program for their kinect dash board. Selecting and using harmonix interface is just flawless. So smooth and really responsive. You can literally flick your finger (it is actually that responsive, very impressive).

I want to buy DC...But I'll wait for the price to drop as I'm not a dancer.

It is actually a really fun games if you like dancing. I got all kind of kicks out of watching my wife and her friends playing it. For some reason they would not play in thongs though... Sigh...
