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)

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
