Rockstar are back in the national press, again...

Sept 03 2007

UK national newspaper The Guardian named Rockstar North in a feature highlighting the top 50 brightest design talents inBritain this weekend, honouring the GTA developer for being a pioneer in the open-ended sandbox style of play that is so common today. And while not exactly a thumbs-up from The Daily Mail, seeing the controversial game creator acknowledged in the mainstream media in a positive light certainly makes a refreshing change.

Also included on the list (which wasn't numbered, by the way) were Jonathan Ive, the designer behind Apple's iPod; London Underground for its "tube-inspired products" and Moritz Waldemeyer, who has crafted a table covered in LEDs that can play Pong. Which is awesome, frankly.
