I play DDR by way of entertainment and daily exercise. As a result, I go through floor pads fairly quickly: the BNS ones I've tried so far have each lasted 45-ish days before developing faults and 60 to 90 before failing entirely. I decided this time to get one of the more expensive Ignition pads from Red Octane: the reviews I've seen speak highly of them, and if it lasts longer, it's worth it. I ordered a copy of DDRMAX2 at the same time.
Well, it arrived yesterday morning. The pad came. Rather than DDRMAX2, they included... wait for it... Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix. The packing list is correct, someone just grabbed the wrong disc.
I find this rather amusing. I have *no* interest in using Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, It's a Small World, Donald Duck's Birthday Song, the Mickey Mouse March, and so forth for my daily dose of accelerated heart rate. I expect that Red Octane will send out the right disc on Monday. I'm also expecting that they'll want DDR Disney back: it appears to be quite rare. It usually goes for $70-100 on ebay. Well, fine, I'll happily send it to them... if they pay for shipping.
Meanwhile, I wish it were possible to get older mixes (say, 4th) for the PS2.
