You learn something new every day. Today, TheFeed learned that there is a Massively Multiplayer Online game about dancing called Audition, now available for download at www.nexon.net.
We also learned that pop star Hilary Duff is contributing a song to the game.
“One of the biggest ways I connect with my fans is online,” says Hilary Duff (in a press release.). “And now with Audition, I have a cool new venue where I can share my music. Not to mention, I can’t wait to see all the crazy and original dance competitions featuring ‘With Love.”
She can't wait, do you hear that? All this would have been totally skipped by TheFeed, most likely, except we enjoyed this quote from the game's press release:
“Gamers are turning to the online world not just to battle enemies and car-jack pedestrians, but to ‘hang-out’ and interact with their peers,” says John H. Chi, president and chief executive officer of Nexon America. “Audition provides teens a trendy virtual scene where they can socialize with their friends and participate in dance-offs to their favorite songs. It also offers people another way to find and listen to new music.”
Does that sound like a nightmare, or what? I hate 'hanging out' and interacting!
