EA SPORTS To Move Testing Facility To LSU Campus
One of the largest video game companies in the world will operate a testing facility at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced Wednesday.
The EA Sports North American Test Center on the south campus of LSU, creating 20 full-time jobs and nearly 200 part-time positions, Jindal said. Payroll for the operation is expected to be $5.7 million per year, the governor said.
People employed at the facility will play games created by EA SPORTS to test them for potential problems and suggest improvements. “I wish there had been a program where they paid college students to play video games when I was in college,” the governor joked as he made the announcement. [WAFB]
