In Another discussion report, for Manitoba Modern Economics, Technology and the Environment. This is the second part in a two-part series on new media. The second part talks about how Manitoba can be a leader in Canada, in the video game and new media entertainment industry . The report mentions that video games have come a long way from their humble beginnings and now a main stream form of entertainment, in large part thanks to the Internet and expansion of on-line console gaming.
