Developers On Outsourcing

An Examination of Outsourcing: The Developer Angle on Gamasutra is an enlightening article on the extent to which certain developers make use of outsourcing to help create their games, a practice that is controversial among developers, as some feel this costs western jobs. This looks at the topic from the developer's perspective, talking with folks from three companies that make use of outsourced development: Bungie cofounder Alex Seropian (now of Wideload Games), Kuju Entertainment president Jonathan Newth, and Shiraz Akmal of THQ's XDG group that manages that company's outsourcing efforts. An upcoming part two will look at this from the perspective of the developers doing this outsourced work.

There's no 'feel' about it, my Australian Bank Programming job is in Chennai now, thanks EDS

I feel your pain, but if it wasn't for outsourcing I wouldn't have a job.
