Gamers Invade Massachusetts
From Pong and Pac-Man to Duke Nukem Forever and Bioshock Infinite, video games have gone from niche industry to $25 billion juggernaut. New England is one of the prime feeders for the gaming juggernaut, too: the PAX East Expo takes place at the Boston Convention Center starting this Friday, and companies like Irrational and Turbine Games, as well as myriad indie startups, all have headquarters in the area. Today, we hear about how New England is positioning itself as a major player in the ever-expanding gaming industry.
