Gaming Roundup: EA-Dev Center; Sony-Local Content; Bindra-XBox360

— Sony is working on five projects for developing local Indian content, and has tied up with four game developers in the country, reports DNA. In order to cut costs, they’re also planning to train local developers, and offer development kits on loan. Well, if they really want to spur on development – why charge for kits?

— GamingIndians gets to take a look inside EA’s Hyderabad based studio, which provides end-to-end mobile game development – including porting, game development and localization. The studio employs around 200 people, and also does work on console and PC games. Amol Gurwara, head of operations for the studio says that India isn’t ready yet to develop high-end games, end-to-end. Would you agree? Do read about the studio, over at GamingIndians.

— Jaspreet Bindra, who was earlier the Country Manager for Microsofts Online Services Group has been appointed the head of the Entertainment and Devices Division (EDD) in India; xBox 360 is a part of this division. Readers will remember that the previous head of EDD, Mohit Anand, had quit to join as the head of Channel V. As per reports, the xBox360 is struggling in India, but Microsoft of course claims otherwise. Has Bindra ever played Need For Speed?
