Quick updates on 38 Studios, Chafee’s presser, self-promotionMay 25th, 2012 at 2:40 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes
There hasn’t been much in the way of new developments surrounding 38 Studios so far today – watch our noon newscast report for updates. But we are working new tips as they come into the WPRI 12 newsroom.
WPRI.com will stream Governor Chafee’s 4:30 p.m. news conference live on our website if you want to watch.
Also, I just taped an interview with Kay Ryssdal for tonight’s edition of “Marketplace” about the 38 Studios situation. That will air locally at 6:30 p.m. on Rhode Island Public Radio; you can listen live here.
Elsewhere, read Alexander Sliwinski’s Joystiq editorial about how 38 Studios employees apparently had no idea what was coming just last week. For a very different view from what people may be saying here right now, read this from Forbes: “Don’t Let 38 Studios Sour You: Video Games Are Good for Your State’s Economy.” And Timothy Loew of the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute argues the Bay State needs to avoid schadenfreude.
