The news that gaming is good for you socially and educationally will come as glad tidings for many in the world of gaming, albeit that it's something they have undoubtedly been saying for years.

Admittedly it's not a company you would naturally associate with gaming, but they have a business stake in all of this. The company says its aim is to help the industry leverage IBM's products in developing games and cutting overall costs.
