UNO to teach development of video games



NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Students interested in making a career out of developing computer and video games may be interested in a new discipline to be offered by the University of New Orleans.

The university says its computer science department is now offering a concentration in game development.

The Advocate reports a 2011 study by market research company the NPD Group found that video game sales in the United States generate about $8.8 billion annually, while sales of computer games total about $450 million.

The game development concentration could become a recruiting tool for the university, computer science chair Mahdi Abdelguerfi said.
