    The following as an article from my GameSpy Daily Newsletter.

    GDM Survey Salary - Prophet
    Game Developer Magazine's Annual Salary Survey was released today, revealing that entry-level game programmers continue to enjoy the highest salaries per person relative to other disciplines, according to the survey conducted by GDM. The survey found that programmers with less than two years experience make $58,000 - $74,000, while entry level art and animation, game design, audio engineers and production positions start around $40,000 - 45,000. After six years in the business, programming positions average between $85,000 and $110,000 annually. The average executive producer at the same level, however, makes nearly $123,000.
    You can check out anytime you like, but you can NEVER leave.

    That's like... 5000-6000 per month, innit? How the hell am I gonna spend that much money?

    I mean currently my monthly budget is 400 euros... most of which is paid by the state.

    Now it's only a matter of getting that job. :grin:
    Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

        and the average commercial pilot makes less than $50,000, whilst the elite few who work for a major airlines (like delta) make up to $140,000, after spending over 10 years in training, with a total education cost of about $200,000. What is this world coming to?

            5000 a month isn't all that much money, its good but isn't great.

            Edit: they also don't tell you how many hours you have to work to
            make that much. They work very long hours.

                    Fortunately, I didn't recognize that to be anything but some kind of poetry.

                      If you're gonna be a picky little bitch, I'll do up some Metallica ones - I know they'll go down well in TUT country

                          That'd be much better. Although I'm losing interest for metallica too.

                          It's all about the Dream Theater....
