The UK government plans to open a Usability Center for Video Games to offer training, development skills, and general knowledge to those who plan on working in the games industry.

It’s be located near the BBC’s MediaCity headquarters in Salford, Greater Manchester, and the government hopes the center will be “national resource” to “meet the industries’ needs”, and take advantage of the BBC’s Children’s and Sports Department, Interactive Education and Literacy Department, and R&D operations.

No word on when the ribbon-cutting will commence.
