Earlier this year Just Cause 2 developer Avalanche Studios' CEO Christofer Sundberg tweeted a couple of blurry images thought to be from the yet-to-be-seen Just Cause 3 or possibly the Mad Max game the studio was allegedly working on. As it turns out, these were from an unannounced "steampunk-style game" that's been put on hold.

Just Dance 3, the most recent game, has been bought 7 million times since its late 2011 arrival (October on Wii, 360; December on PS3).
Popularity vindicated, Just Dance was flown to Japan and Korea, where the game has sold more than 500,000 copies.
Call of Duty game Modern Warfare 3 sold fewer copies than Black Ops in the UK in a comparable time frame.
In 2011, Modern Warfare 3 shifted 2,814,609 copies, the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) has revealed (using data provided by weekly counter GfK Chart-Track).

If, like me, you have the music tastes of the average 13-year-old girl, you'll no doubt be aware of the dramatic reformation of Steps, the formation-dancing pop troupe of late nineties/early noughties cheese fame.
The dancing game genre has also recently found its second wind in the shape - and shapes - of the original Just Dance's breakaway success. This after the DDR dance mat revolution (also of the late nineties/early noughties) had largely faded away into bargain-bin oblivion.
Mats were out, Wii was the new stage, and Ubisoft seized the moment to unleash its own formation-dancing neon sugar-rush of pure pop gaming. Arriving now on Kinect (a PlayStation Move version is due in December), millions of sales later, the genre theoretically and theatrically reaches its logical conclusion, shorn of all that is inessential. Everything, in other words, but the moves and the music.
Just Dance 3 boasts a toe-tapping total of 49 musical tracks, Ubisoft has announced. It launches today on Wii and Xbox 360.
Despite Guitar Hero's bubble bursting earlier this year, the music genre is in great shape and looks set for major growth over the next few years, according to a new book on the genre out this week.
