Top 20 video game publishers of 2008

The winner might suprise you -- or not!

In terms of output, average review scores, and revenue, as ranked by Game Developer Magazine. And the winner might surprise you (no it won't).

It's Nintendo.

Thanks to unrelenting demand for both Wii and DS, the company maintained the top spot for a second consecutive year. Electronic Arts came in second, followed by Activision (now merged with Vivendi and Blizzard), Ubisoft, and Sony Computer Entertainment.

Surging Sega placed seventh on the list, Microsoft took the ninth spot, and Capcom dropped to 14. A struggling Midway brought up the rear at 20. (via Gamasutra)

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
