Just Dance 2015 Ditches Kinect And Camera For Phone App

By   /   Oct 30, 2014

Peripherals in gaming are still an iffy situation, but publisher Ubisoft has some news that could change their necessity. Their rhythm game, Just Dance 2015, released a Motion Controller application that works on mobile devices.

In short, this means that the game doesn’t require either a Kinect or Playstation Camera, depending on which version of the game it is, to see players. Instead, moves and scores are tracked via the player’s phone.

How does it work? First, download the Motion Controller app on either iOS or Android. Open the app and connect it to the same Wi-Fi as your console of choice is currently hooked on, which isn’t a necessity for either PS4 or Xbox One, but it is in this case.

After the device is tethered, it should detect Just Dance 2015 automatically. Hold your phone in your right hand while you’re playing and it will keep track of you and your moves.

The Just Dance 2015 Motion Controller app works for iOS 6 and up, as well as Android 4 and its later versions. Hopefully, no one will launch their phone into the wall or TV, while busting some sick poses.

Just Dance 2015 features a total of 45 tracks. Artists include Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea or Katy Perry, as well as classics like Bonnie Tyler, Run DMC or The Platters.

Up to four players can shake it in Just Dance 2015 on Playstation 4, while up to six people are supported on Xbox One. We envy those who can dance together in any degree of choreography with six bodies in the same room.
