Performance, indeed. The Ignition Pad
is a dancepad with substance. Instead of the flimsy plastic used on some dancepads, the plastic used in the construction of the Ignition Pad
is thicker and more durable. In addition, the pad is made as a hollow pocket and includes a foam mat that is to be inserted into this pocket. Once fully assembled, this inner padding layer not only offers a nice balance between firm response and comfort, but also gives the Ignition Pad
some additional weight, making it a lot sturdier than other dancepads.
The quality of the Ignition Pad makes it much more enjoyable to actually play these type games at home. My wife and I have not been into the dance genre very much up until this point, but since I got the Ignition Pad, we've been using it with Dance Dance Revolution and In The Groove on a regular basis. My mom even tried it out a bit. It's just that good.
The fact that it is multiplatform only makes it that much better; you can use the Ignition Pad with PlayStation, PS2, Xbox and even your computer (USB). This is excellent, since you aren't likely to have room for multiple dancepads to use with your various systems. Just pick up a couple Ignition Pads and you're good to go!
