Summary: The mat is the original Konami one, and is of very good quality (specialy considering the price of the bundle versus the standalone game). The whole family loves DDR, so we went and baught a second mat.
Summary: This version doesn't come with a pad, but quite frankly, I would advise getting it separately anyhow. This is a GREAT change from video games where you sit on your backside, though I dearly love those as well. You can do 'workout mode', where you input your weight and it will tell you approximately how many calories you burned, and it IS based on your actual steps. Dance Master mode is pretty intriguing.
