  • Italy is considered at a short driving distance from San Francisco?

    • J.C.

      Dammit that’s pretty much exactly what I was going to say. Substitute “Indiana” for “Italy” though.

      • Uff… they could offer remote working through BigScreen VR, that’s a true VR working environment!!

  • J.C.

    I do find it odd that despite VR being in that stage where there aren’t a TON of users, but those users are losing patience with half-assed games…

    Why would anyone in the industry base themselves where it’s STUPID expensive to operate? Why wouldn’t they push to be located where rent is cheap? Far, FAR more money could be routed to paying devs, which equals a larger, better game. Why blow it on the building??

    On average, the Midwest costs half what it does to live in Cali. In more popular areas, such as San Francisco, you’re looking at 3x the cost. That means you not only have to pay for the building at 3x, but also your employees, if you expect to keep decent ones. Since the amount of money available certainly doesn’t triple for no good reason, why would you literally limit yourselves to 1/3 of the production time per title before your funding dried up?

    No, most of the Midwest isn’t trendy. It doesn’t have constantly nice weather, but no one’s coding outside. I don’t feel remotely sorry for any dev house that insists on being located somewhere stupidly expensive to live, and then fails to deliver a product worth a damn due to burning through funding.
