Q: In a lot of ways the Seattle area is a video-game hub. To what extent did that play into the decision to create the headquarters here for NCSoft West?
Borden: Seattle was very appealing, it seems to be growing when it comes to a presence of video game publishers and developers. It’s frankly one of very few natural fits, I think, within North America to try to set up shop. Definitely the ability to hire top-tier talent was a big factor. Also, it’s an international hub. We travel a lot to the U.K., and of course Seoul, and it maybe goes unnoticed, but the ability to fly directly and easily is a factor, as well.
