Pittsburgh is the front-runner to become the U.S. headquarters location for a British videogame developer looking to expand its operations abroad.
Eutechnyx, the driving force behind such games as "Big Mutha Truckers" and "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift," is "awfully close" to settling on Pittsburgh after considering Montreal and Atlanta, said Todd Eckert, the local movie producer who has been tapped to head the company's U.S. operations.
About 18 months ago, I posted this note about CMU's Entertainment Technology Center and some of its local spinoffs.
Big Mutha Truckers? Right now, my son (otherwise a Halo and GTA fan) is eager to get his hands on the new "Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures." Can Pittsburgh get some of that action?
