My first post here.

I don't know if I want my arcade to get this or Fiesta. Currently, they only have DDR. It used to be a Gameworks, so it's understandable (but there's no ITG either). I kind of want PRO 2, but... Fiesta has FIRE! :(

You'll be happier with the REAL Pump It Up series.

But if they get pro, then I guess it's a substitute until a real Pump It Up mix is available for you. Remember, an imitation is never as good as the real thing.

Instead of making a new post, I'll just edit tis one.

Yeehaw, are you serious??? A D&B Actually got Pro? This better not be a trend or something. It's bad enough that some D&B's have DDR, but adding Pro is concerning.

Diamondback: If you're near Indy, the Dave and Busters has Pro 2 right now.  I'm told a bunch of the IndyDDR crew are going there tonight.  

Are you referring to the gameworks studio on the fourth floor of that mall near downtown Indy? If you are, the chances of them getting any type of pump at all are slim to none considering it's a Nickles & Dimes location now.

"Remember, an imitation is never as good as the real thing."

Exactly what are you trying to say by this? It IS an OFFICIAL PUMP MIX. It's a localized release, just like how ITG or, hell, DDR past Extreme was.

Diamondback: Go check it out of you're close to a location and, if you like it, go for it. Personally, I like it much more than any other type of release, let alone the usability and whatnot make it, to me, a much more valuable release.

Fiesta has about 8 locations in the US, last I heard, if that is any indication as to how people are satisfied with it.

Pump Pro is not an official mix. It was allowed to be created by Andamiro, but not a real Pump mix.

Sorry.

Imitation isn't the right word for it, I guess. Half-assed reproduction is more like it.

I can't really defend him calling it an "imitation", but it is not in any way an official Pump mix. Pro was a spinoff, and Pro 2 is essentially a completely independent game whose only tie to the Korean-developed series is a handful of songs and a title.

The two games are as different, if not more so, than ITG2 and Extreme were, so it makes sense to desire one over the other.

It's not a "localized release" (like Premiere through Premiere 3 were) because it's headed by a completely independent development team with essentially no ties to the original development of the series.

Pro was never an official Pump mix. It got the "green light" by Andamiro, but really, it was a completely different game made by a completely different company in order to satiate deprived ITG players. And Pro 2 is a new version of that game. Pro is in NO WAY a continuation of the Pump series.

Understand that we don't have anything against your liking Pro. Just don't call it Pump it Up. It is not the same game. Even the Pro developers understand that.

Current piano projects: None atm.

Some of my performances: Feux D'artifice, by Claude Debussy, La Cathedrale Engloutie, by Debussy, Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62 no. 1, by Frederic Chopin, Ballade no. 1 in G Minor, by Chopin, Amberley Wild Brooks, by John Ireland, Prelude in D Minor, Op. 28 No. 24, by Chopin

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

I think that's just an indication of an shitty economy.

Pro and Pro 2 have far more than that, so "the economy" is no reason for that.

"Pro is in NO WAY a continuation of the Pump series."

I didn't say that, did I?

Pro is an official pump mix. If you disagree, go yell at Andamiro. It's on their product page. Seems a little odd that a "non official mix" would be on the official page, eh?

Pro has been around a lot longer than Fiesta. And last time I heard, there was 4 or 5 beta locations for Pro 2, and those (most of them) now have the completed version.

The main reason for Fiesta not being "popular" in the US is the economy, not because Pro and Pro 2 are better.

And saying it's an official mix is the same as saying it is a continuation of the Pump series, so yes, you did technically say that.

Not trying to being a dick or anything, just speaking my mind, as is everyone else who is talking about this.
