Kinect version leverages proprietary Player Projection technology that puts their image in the game
There are 5 modes in the Kinect version: Practice (Dancing only), Dance (Dancing only), Sing (Singing only), Performance (Dancing and Singing) and Master Performance (Dancing and Singing).
The portable versions are all different in terms of gameplay, such as the DS version being a Elite Beat Agents clone, and the PSP version being similar to Guitar Hero.
The Wii version is very similar to ABBA: You Can Dance in terms of graphics and the only differences are the font and the look of the menu.
If the DS version of the game detects it is being played via an unauthorized pirating device, you will hear vuvuzela sounds over the game's audio, making it difficult to play.
If there are two players in a song, P2 will appear in each side of the screen making a feeling of a trio mode, even though the routines are duets.
In every dance on the Wii and PS3 versions, Michael Jackson is portrayed by Yoni Jayl (who is also the choreographer, along with Cain Kitsais and Céline Rotsen).
The Just Dance 2 Gold Move sound effect is used in this game.
Also, Gold Moves or Gold Notes display "GOLD MOVE" or "GOLD NOTES" in the score area (instead of "YEAH") when they are performed or sung correctly.
Karaoke is exclusive to Xbox 360 and PS3.
In the Xbox 360 version, the player can sing using the Kinect Sensor's mic, the Xbox 360 headset or a wireless or USB microphone. Singing is only available in Performance Mode, Master Performance Mode and Sing Mode.
In the PS3 version, lines that are highlighted in gold are called "Gold Notes".
