Scotland...Amongst Others

This article really reads like an advertisement.

That point aside, while I wont poo-poo Scotland's ability to figure out what it takes to get a game industry going, they're not the only ones doing it. You can find individual states in the United States and Canada doing similar things. Ireland is doing it. China is doing it as well. So is South Korea. This is about the game industry getting (more) global. Scotland is just doing the smart thing. I wonder why Scotland gets an article?

University programs dedicated to gaming research and development? Companies working on major releases from small towns? If you are Scotland, then the answer to all of the above questions is a resounding "Yes."
