A new study from the University of Colorado Denver Business School has determined that employees who are trained on video game software are much more likely to retain the information they had learned.

But that isn't all they are doing to be more 'green'. Ubisoft is also partnering with Technimark to make new games cases that are made of 100% recycled materials.

However, she did say, "Part of Nintendo’s heritage is to always be looking at innovation, and to always start working on the next hardware every time we launch a platform, so we’ll have it ready when the time is right."
