It's what Europeans have long speculated -- Americans get paid more for doing the exact same thing. At least, that's what the Game Developer Salary Report says, after following salaries of game developers from 2004 - 2007.
In fact, according to the report, all jobs in the game industry are higher paying in the US than in Europe. Game testing, also known as quality assurance, has the smallest gap."Europeans in the games industry are earning significantly less than their American counterparts. The only discipline that comes close is QA, which is separated by only 7 per cent in 2006. Game designers in Europe are making 25 per cent less, business and legal staff are making 26 per cent less and programmers are making 33 per cent less," it says in the report.
So, want to get your big break in the video game industry? Then pack up and move across the ocean.
