Lulz - 'designed in California, made in China' more often than not - even Avatar 2 will be brought to you now by Beijing. So Hollywood is already giving you the finger as well. I'm a betting man - 7 out of 10 says more and more 'western 'game devs will be getting sacked over the years and replaced by Chinese automatons who will be able to 'produce' the game just the same - and without the middleman - the 'western entrepreneur' - entering into the mix as well. Your government is setting you 'bubble economy' enterpreneurs up for big failure - you idiots just don't realize it yet, just like the 'dotcom' idiots back in the late '90s didn't get it until it was too late.

The Chinese are doing just that. They will be eating your lunch in the foreseeable future - you just don't know it yet.
Which is why it's doubly hilarious when I see these western 'entrepreneurs' thinking they're 'making it big' while they have to resort to China to get their shitty Kickstarted products (like an Ouya) actually assembled and built. What kind of an MBA moron do you have to be not to realize that if your country is not the sole proprietor of PHYSICAL PRODUCTION, that you are in danger of being 'TOPPLED OVERNIGHT' by the country that does?
Your MBA degree is not worth the paper it's printed on if you can't see which way the wind is blowing - and the way the wind is blowing means you as a 'western entrepreneur' are not going to amount to 'jack shit' all - have fun with that 'lifestyle' after the bubble has burst - it won't be pretty - don't say you weren't warned.
