New, 2 comments

The New York Senate Select Committee on Science, Technology, Incubation and Entrepreneurship is headed to the Rochester Institute of Technology Tuesday to learn more about the video game industry, according to the state senate's official site.

The committee will hold a roundtable called "Growing Computer and Video Game Development in New York" from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the RIT Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction and Creativity. The goal of the discussion, which will be open to the public, is to learn how to attract those in the industry to the state.

Members of the committee met last month with the CEO of Take-Two Strauss Zelnick, executive producer of MTV Digital Tom Akel and co-president of Games for Change Asi Burak at the Polytechnic Institute of New York for a similar discussion.
