Bon, c'est vrai que Forbes a une approche pour le moins fantaisiste de la culture vidéo ludique.

Bah, tout le monde ne paut pas avoir Erwan Cario dans sa rédaction je suppose ! :P

marrant, j'etais justement aujourd'hui sur Forbes pour tout autre chose (recherche des sportifs les mieux payer suite aux transfert Beckam), et y decouvert qu'ils traitaient de jeux justement :P
Merci pour tous ces liens en tout cas.

Salut Krousty !

Il parait que Beckam part aux US? C'est pas un peu une forme de retraite ça pour un footballeur?

Blague à part, je trouve que ç'est significatif pour l'industrie quand Forbes, The Economist ou Fast Company s'intéresse à notre industrie.

J'y vois le signe indéniable de reconnaissance public par le haut...

C'est surotut un pan et acteurs de l'economies qu'il est impossible de denigrer vu le poid qu'ils commencent a peser mondialement sur les marcher, son economie et ses loisirs!

sinon, Une retraite a 31 balais (donc y'a deja deux as pour moi) a 250 Millions de $ de salaire, je prend sans probleme en tout cas !!! :)

Lol ! Ca va, j'ai encore un an devant moi alors :P

Blague à part, ça craint de pas être riche à 30 ans... Pffff ;-)
