字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント We are at Gamescom in Germany. This is one of the biggest video game fairs in the world. The video game industry is huge. 65% of households in the United States have one or more people who play three hours, at least, of video games per week. And there are an estimated 34 million active gamers just here in Germany. That's about half the population above the age of 14. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is getting into it herself. But for a lot of people here it's not just fun and games. It's actually a full-time job. We are on a quest to find people who are playing video games for a living. This honestly feels like an amusement park, not a trade fair. Okay, so, we've made our way to Xbox. This is a business that's been around the industry for quite a while now. I actually started at Microsoft in 1998. The first game that I worked on was Age of Empires. And when we started the Xbox program at Microsoft I kind of leapt toward that. I've been working on Xbox now since the Xbox 360 days. I'm really designing something that I would love to use every day. The average job in the U.S. gaming industry paid a salary of $97,000 per year in 2016. You don't even have to be an engineer to make good money in gaming. Programmers, artists, musicians, it takes all kinds to do games. We found Carlos Paton who is the product manager for Thunderobot in Europe, which makes gaming products like laptops and virtual reality sets. This is a prototype now. Carlos has been gaming since he was little and now gets to play and test games as part of his job. When I have a little bit of free time, what I really love to do is play games. A lot of the gaming industry is built around major franchises like Star Wars or Super Mario. How's it going Mario? Gaming jobs have come a long way from the days of arcades and consoles. We found a lot of businesses focused on casual gaming… So I want to get the gold? Which are games less experienced players can download on their phones or web browsers. The popularity of casual gaming has opened up new jobs in the industry… Lose! But it's still not for everyone. Clearly I'm not quitting my job to do this anytime soon.
