Call of Duty Black Ops III is coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for those still on the last generation of consoles. However, there is a big feature getting cut from those versions of Black Ops III. There will not be a co-op experience on last-gen consoles, the single player campaigns have been dropped from the game. It seems either multiplayer or the new zombies mode will be the only ways to play Black Ops III on the last-gen systems. The game will retail for $49.99 and include a digital voucher for the original Call of Duty Black Ops (bonus download varies by region). If you are looking for the full experience of Call of Duty that includes the single player, you will need to upgrade to the next-gen consoles at some point.

Robocraft has a new update that brings a single player mode and a Community Robot Factory to the fold. The CRF is an in-game, automated robot replication factory that empowers Robocrafters to build, promote and trade their most deadly and/or stylish robots for other players to hire or buy for battle. Players can upload up to five robots for the community to lease or purchase before going into battle. Creators will get a little bit of commission back from those who use their creations. A single player mode has also been added for players who want to practice or just take on computer A.I. Resources can still be acquired in this mode, on par with the game's PVP modes. The robots in single player will be drawn from the Community Robot Factory. Big changes keep coming to Robocraft with the intention to keep players hooked on the free-to-play game.
