Brent, here's a job for you in BR

Now I guess you can definitely move.

WAFB Channel 9, Baton Rouge, LA |EA SPORTS gaming company to locate facility at LSU


Quote:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - One of the largest video game companies in the world will operate a testing facility at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced Wednesday.

The EA Sports North American Test Center on the south campus of LSU, creating 20 full-time jobs and nearly 200 part-time positions, Jindal said. Payroll for the operation is expected to be $5.7 million per year, the governor said.

People employed at the facility will play games created by EA SPORTS to test them for potential problems and suggest improvements. "I wish there had been a program where they paid college students to play video games when I was in college," the governor joked as he made the announcement.

EA is the company that produces Madden Football, Tiger Woods Golf, NASCAR, and NCAA Football. For the past two years, officials have been working on recruiting video gaming companies to our area to take advantage of the state's tax incentive program.

LSU will also create a new educational program at LSU called AVATAR (Arts, Visualization Advanced Technologies and Research). "AVATAR will establish collaboration among various disciplines to produce research and projects related to digital media," the governor said.

My girlfriend's brother-in-law is a full time tester for EA Sports. He is a huge nerd.

I don't think there are many of the testers that actually make a whole lot of money. Too many people wanting to do it.

My last employer went into the interview with 2 new prospects with beers in hand. They even brought one for the interviewees, but they said no, so the developers drank them both.

Any money you make from playing video games is decent. Period.
