Company Site Visit: Gearbox Invites Gamers To Focus Group

If you've ever wanted to tell a developer how you really feel about a game, now is your chance. Gearbox is looking for input on two new games: Aliens: Colonial Marines and Borderlands.

Gearbox is sending out an open invitation to participate in a focus group on two upcoming games: Aliens: Colonial Space Marines and Borderlands.  There is a bit of fine print:

  • You ust be 18 years of age or older.
  • You must be able to provide your own transportation to our office in Plano, TX.
  • You must be able to attend sessions during normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 10:00AM-6:00PM)
  • You must have a passion for playing video games.

This feedback is critical to developers in getting their games refined to a higher degree and there is always a bit of cool loot that goes along with these visits.  Even better, you get to hang out with some of the folks that make the games.

The application to apply (many will enter, few will win, blah, blah, blah - but good luck!) can be found at:

More details about the focus group invite (frankly, not much more than is listed above) can be found at:

Good luck!
