Just Dance Summer Party Limited Edition
Now this is a pleasant surprised. Ubisoft is pressing all of their Just Dance 2 downloadable tracks to disc and selling the package for $30. This is just about the only thing happening on the Nintendo Wii this year, so it's definitely worth grabbing. I do hope the Christmas medley (offered as a free download back in December) is included, because that's probably my favorite. Oh, and Funkytown with a big green alien...good times.
Just Dance 2 was easily the best Wii game of 2010, and I expect Just Dance 3 to retain the crown for 2011. I'm honestly not sure what happens to the series after this year; the arrival of Nintendo's Wii U will mark a dramatic shift away from motion controllers, and I fear the dance/fitness games will be left to die in the desert. I don't know if there will be a Just Dance 4. We should probably enjoy this party while it lasts.
Also, I wouldn't at all be surprised if this release really is a "limited edition." Ubisoft makes far more money selling individual downloadable songs for three dollars a pop. Snap this up while you can, kids;
