I've never totally gotten the appeal of Wii dancing games, though clearly there are a whole ton of Just Dance fans out there who disagree. This new ad for Harmonix's just-released Dance Central 2 takes a humorous dig at Wii games, and their obsolescence in the face of full motion-tracking.

Honestly, while truly compelling Kinect games are few and far between, watching this ad reinforces the fact that there is no greater hardware out there for dancing games. Though it must be said, when I play Dance Central 2, it's less "cool, attractive dude and girl playing together" and more "goofy guy dancing around in his apartment by himself." But the potential is there! Maybe I should invite more people over so that my own Dance Central 2 sessions begin to resemble the ones on the TV.
