Develop 100; European developers doing well
Today the fourth annual Develop 100 is released, a book that ranks the world's developers based on sales of their games across the UK.
Nintendo takes the number one position this year knocking EA Canada off the top spot, which it has held since the Develop 100 was originally conceived.
But despite the increased success of Nintendo and the reportedly low-cost development resources available in Canada, the Develop 100 shows that European studios are doing well.
Development teams in the UK and mainland Europe claimed 36 places in the list between them, having generated £284m at UK retail in 2007 – higher than Canada’s 12 studios and £221m revenues.
The top UK studio, sitting in 10th place, is Traveller's Tales - producers of the Lego series of games. Look out for more news from Traveller's Tales and TT Games soon at PS3 Attitude.
