Microsoft's Global Warming Game Contest
College-age video game enthusiasts can now claim their gaming habits may help save the world. Microsoft is launching a contest this summer, the Xbox 360 Games for Change Challenge, offering cash and other prizes to whiz kids who dedicate their game design skills to the cause of global warming.
Three cash prizes will be awarded to the best team or individual entries, with the first place team winning the opportunity to intern at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business. Moreover, the top three games may wind up on the Xbox Live Arcade.
