    Default Sony Sponsors a Program for Girls Who Want to Get into the Gaming Industry

    Sony is sponsoring a bootcamp program for girls ages 11-14 who want to get into technology and video games. This program is by Liverpool Girl Geeks of England and they're hoping to get 400 girls for this.

    Got this news from Polygon.

    I can't wait for the quick and unwarranted backlash from the anti-political correctness daycare escapees.

    The first two thoughts in my head when I saw this thread were exactly the first two replies. This address a clear area where the gaming industry can improve and is a really cool way to do it. Bugger off to anyone who thinks otherwise.

    Terrible first comment on the Polygon article though. I am glad to see more of these programs popping up.

    This is for sure is a step in the right direction for game development. This could in the long run help reduce the repetitiveness that seems to plague a good amount of the gaming industry now.

    Video games as a whole are mostly dominated by men I think so it is nice to see woman getting into it. This is a good thing that will bring in new idea's and new flavours in the future of gaming. I like the idea!
