Just Dance 2 - A Social Gaming Milestone

Is there any question that Just Dance 2 will become a smash success? The first title has sold over 3 million copies, and is currently the top-selling game of 2010 in the UK. And here comes the sequel, with is improved in every way. This is going to be big. This video comes from Comic Con, and features four teenagers dancing along to indie-pop band Vampire Weekend in the game's new Duet Mode.

Parents used to write off video games as a fad. The truth is, they were right. The catch is that a new fad emerges once the old one has faded. Guitar Hero/Rock Band was the last fad, and its time has now passed. Just Dance announced itself as the Next Big Thing, and Just Dance 2 should secure it. Social Gaming is the new paradigm today, and the dancing game is the new fad.
