And it won't/can't really have anything higher than say, a 10.  Unless you use 2 cons.  Then maybe.  Maybe you'd get up to a 12.

There's good and bad that I see here:

BAD: Probably shittified song list, probably wimpified difficulty and interface

GOOD: Cheap controller here I come!!!

Hey, atleast BMUS didn't change up everything about the gameplay... Just had some not so good tunes...   XD

It did....

1) inflated grades (e.g. AA -> AAA)
2) 'just great' -> 'perfect' judgments
3) a large portion of the songs were only playable in 5key mode

And this doesn't include the bad song selection...

Actually, you just had to unlock everything.  There was a 5k song I never played (the one thats unlocked by default in free mode) and I still got another mode.

Go figure.

Actually, playing BMUS is a waste once you realize most of the japanese versions don't require unlocking at all...

(though there's maybe a handful of songs on there that haven't been released on a newer, e.g. 10th+, interface... like... Jelly Kiss... and... ummm....)

At least DDRV1 will have Rick Astley.  Screw 8 panel mode.

The nice thing about something an 8-panel mode is that if you don't like it, you can ignore it.

Although it will almost definitely have trophies/achievements associated with it, which is lame.

But then, so are achievements. Fitting?

Get serious.
