That explains the large turnout at Gameworks last week. B-)

I don't know about EA, but Midway has been there already forever.

Those aren't very strong arguments for "the Next Growth Area for Game Development". Midway's "upcoming release" of Blitz hardly counts as fuel for a growth spurt. An upcoming release causes the spurt? What if the game sucks? Then we'll get a new headline, "Is Chicago's Game Development Scene in Heavy Decline?" I don't often swear on these boards, but: ********.

Ugh, that was a cheap bit of promotion for one stupid game with a few tiny mentions of other companies.

I would have thought it was some article with PR origins if only it didn't include two competing companies. So, I'm not really sure why it exists at all - definitely not because of the reason stated.

We do have a few companies here:
EA Chicago, High Voltage, Webfoot Technoligies (famous for being sued by hasbro), Incredible Technologies (Golden Tee), Midway, Wideload, PlayMechanix, TLC Industries, Chicago Gaming.. I am sure I missed a few...
Lots of indies too :)
