Video Games in Mainstream News

How often do you see news articles regarding the video games industry in mainstream news? Most of the time, you'll see them when:

a. There's a new video game console launch, heralding the next generation in graphics, gameplay, bla bla bla
b. The fiscal year just ended and video game companies would like to show off their earnings (or be a little discreet about their losses, less someone else reports on them)
c. Another massacre just happened like the one in Columbine and there's no better excuse than to blame the video game industry.

So what recent mainstream news article caught your eye lately (in relation to the video games industry)? There's only one that I can think of:

  • Games 'make drivers go faster' (BBC News)(Original article: here)
