Part of game development in California moved to Japan

The game company Namco Bandai of America is laying off 90 staff members and relocating a part of game development from San Jose, California to Japan. The cuts are a result of the merger between the company's mobile and online game businesses into a single division. "We are partnering with external development studios out there because that is where the game business is going," Namco Bandai Vice President of Marketing Carlson Choi said to the VentureBeat website. As the industry shifts away from traditional game consoles only to developing for phones and other devices, Choi added, "our goal is to move into digital games and broaden to different platforms."
