2K and Rockstar parent Take Two is eyeing off Las Vegas for a new office, according to proposal documents dug up by Gamasutra. The company is apparently being wooed by local authorities, with an offer of $600,000 in incentives should the downtown facility be opened. Nobody’s sure what the office might be for, but as the median weekly wage of its 150 employees would be $18, Gamasutra theorises a QA centre is most likely. Take Two and its offspring have offices all over the world.

Las Vegas expo DICE has sold out, the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences confirmed this morning, a week before it’s to start.
The summit, held at the Red Rock Resort from February 17-20, will include speeches from EA’s John Riccitiello, Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi and Bethesda’s Todd Howard.
“DICE was designed to be an open, collegial and productive gathering so we have always limited our attendance,” said Joseph Olin, president of the AIAS.
“It’s gratifying to see the level of support the Summit receives from our peers, especially in what we all know to be a challenging year.”
