Dance Central and Kinect Sports have surpassed one million units sold in the U.S., according to Aaron Greenberg.
Congratulations Harmonix, Rare and Microsoft...
Microsoft bundles that´s why @Tinasumsum here: http://xboxkinectbundle.com... http://www.gamestop.com/Cat...
Dam I didn't see any DC bundles I would of got one. Does anybody know if this troll is telling the truth?
I'm pretty sure the only Bundled Kinect game is Kinect Adventures but Kinect Sports and Dance Central are not bundled. So the sales of those games are because people want them. @mightyboot but they are not given away for free like Kinect adventures which is given away free with the Kinect sensor for $150 the ones you listed are priced at $220 and $250 so they are not given away free. Plus NPD doesn't count bundled sales that is why Kinect adventures is not on the list and the links you provided are actually pretty bad deals you don't save a dime if you were to buy them individually.
its not like you lied or anything... i sense fanboys are at work here!
just much as sony
There are not really bundles, as you pay full price for the games. They are not inculded in the box with Kinect. Your Shape Fitness and may be Kinectimal will be there soon too. You guys are going to be even more pissed off
those aren't offical bundles. those the ones retailers used to get more money. I had to buy the offical 250gb with forza 3 and alan wake + 3months live and extra controller for 370. they didn't sell it by itself
and yet not one single piece of kinect software makes the top 10 charts for december or for 2010 as a whole. December 2010 Top 10 Games (New Physical Retail only; across all platforms incl. PC) 01.

So didn't GT5... Yes I'm trolling, but you opened the door lol Kudos to Kinect. I like it and having fun with my friends. That's all that matters.
But they still both sold over 1 million. Unless you're saying npd are lying. Just cos they didn't make the top 10 doesn't mean their 1 million milestone gets taken away. It's a top 10 list not a million seller list As for wii owning this, did you just compare a 80 million install base system's software sales to a 7 million install base system's software sales? Wow and what were your findings sherlock?
Yeah MS did good with the timed exclusive on Dance central.. Seems it helped sell Kinect as I doubt it would have sold as many if it was released on both platforms from launch as was originally intended. I may get for PS3 once it finally gets realeased.
Dance central for Move, this is not the same experience as kinect!
Actually it could play very much the same.The game uses silhoutte tracking,just like all those old Eyetoy games.It's not using depth perception and Singstar Dance is very similar but with 2 dancers AND 2 singers playing at once.With Move sensors used as well,it can track complex motion. Just Dance 2 is for Wii and guess what?The most successful dance game on the basic Wii controls. You can cheat it,like a Karaoke game but anyone who really wants to play it won't. Some of you have really bought the Kinect hype
Dance Central I understand, Kinect Sports means over 1 million people got suckered.
Kinect Sports is actually a really well done game. It's one of the most polished Kinect games by far. Rare did a great job with the game.
yeah i was hesitate to get it due to the review. But i just went and buy it anyways, and everyone were just having a blast with it. It is really fun.
Actually Kinect Sports is good. It's the other one, Kinect Joyride, which is sketchy. Overall though, if Dance Central WASN'T up there, then something was wrong.
Kinect sports is by far the best Kinect game out there.
and yet it falls flat on it's face when put against wii sports or sports champions.
fr0sty, how is Kinect Sports falling flat on its face?
The only one that falls flat here is the one nobody seems to be buying...
Congratulations. Kinect sports and Dance Central are the best Kinect games i have played.
Playstation root constitutes piracy, argues company - letting slip it has sold 41m consoles - but law precedent set last summer may be on the hackers' side it looks like the ps3 has along way to go to catch up with 360 thats 9 mill behind 360 unless sony forgot to mentioned its up to date numbers, if these are the real numbers i don`t see why this isn`t one of the hottest topics on this site. and this was news on one of the article were they were talking about the ps3 hack.
I dont understand half of what you are saying.
It sold 41m for 3rd quarter, 4th quarter sales haven't been announced yet dumbass. And while you try to argue sales, PS3 owners will be playing games instead of shovelware kinect games.
Dance Central is a great game that works as advertised. It is responsive and fun, and is a testament to what a great Kinect game can do. Every sale was earned, my family enjoys it. In case someone wants to know, these Kinect games are good so far: Dance Central, Kinectimals (especially if you have kids), and Kinect Sports seems decent - I only demoed it
Where are the 7 Million Kinect than what they talking about last time, if this game selling a Million?
Where age the 46 million ps3's then if GT5 sells only 5 million? Yeah thats how silly you sound. Do you think that every Kinect owner is gonna buy dance central? Every kinect owner is gonna buy kinect sports? If this is what you expect then why isn't sports champion at 4.1 million?
A lot of Kinect buyers would've just stuck with Kinect Adventures. The sensor is an investment as it is, so with added games you are talking some serious cash.
oh so by that logic both SONY and MS should both have games selling aound 40 million then?
Well done Rare and Harmonix. Both are excellent games. Don't pay any attention to the hurt Sony fans. They are still reeling from the fact that Gran Tourismo 5 did not make the top 10 best selling games of 2010. But then that's the magic of the PS3 for you!
Congratulations to Microsoft, Rare and Harmonix! I own both of these games for my Kinect and they work wonderfully, really must own games if you have a Kinect. Especially if you have the lady friends over (wink)
That's the best one yet."Kinect turns a gaming geek into lothario"Ha ha ha ha. Kinect helps you attract the ladies,does it?Or are you just perving at their jiggling bits and lusting from afar? Oh dear.
I have a Girlfriend who likes doing the whole club scene, Dance Central gets her motor going so to speak. She has some girlfriends who come over and like to play too. So sometimes I have quite a few ladies dancing sexily in my living room playing Dance Central. Not such a bad thing at all.
