Clarifying his comments at last week’s Gamescom, Moore wrote on his blog: “Many, if not most, of our games include single-player, offline modes that you can play entirely without an Internet connection, if you so choose, We know that’s something many of our players want, and we will continue to deliver it.”
  • The latest in the Just Dance series, Just Dance Kids 2014, will be released this October for Wii U, Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. The Wii U version will also feature a Dance Director mode, in which truly sadistic players can select dance moves for other players to perform.
