if your looking for local game dev's, SCE Liverpool Studio (Formely Psychnosis) is based in Wavetree Technology Park. although that's about it for anywhere near here. i've developed for tons of consoles and computers alike (from Atari 2600 to Amiga, SNES to PS3 ect...) i mainly disassemble hardware and software for documentation, bug fixing and archive purposes though.

What do you develop McChimp?
There are genuinely not a lot of jobs at the moment as a load of studios have closed down, and the bigger studios tend to gobble up all the staff. The best route to take is learn programming in C++ or C#, and find yourself a niche like AI or network programming (ie the stuff people don't really want to do).
Work hard on a decent portfolio online, there should be jobs opening in a couple of years when the EA/Sony/ etc start putting money back into it.

Was going to say, most companies are waiting for other companies to close down as they don't have to spend money on advertising or using (crappy) agencies, they just invite them for interviews, knowing they have experience, and if they're no good, they don't get jobs, and the company hasn't lost any money, which cost thousands before they even interview people.
It's very difficult to get in as a graduate from university at the moment, even with a decent portfolio. You basically have to live and breathe games, not only playing them but making them. I'd say games designer courses are a waste of time (less if it's not from John Moores or other universities), and you should really try programming.

I have a husband with somewhere around 38-29 consoles and always looking for more with somewhere around 2000 games. He comes complete with bad haircut (my fault, I'm afraid), retro trainers complete with neon strings, calloused thumbs, a blank stare, and a ghostly pale complexion. Take him. I could use the time out!

Blank stare and drawn out complexion sounds like me! Playing games definitely turned me into a zombie growing up.
