More than a year ago we hosted a slew of photos showing off the work desks and gaming set-ups of the world's game developers.

We're now in the process of updating Work and Play: A Peek Inside the Lives of Gaming's Greatest with new desks and new developers. We've decided to move the entire project over to our new photo system, making it much easier to zip through and read the descriptions.

The original idea for the concept was born out of a simple concept: You can judge a lot from a person's desk. And you can judge just as much from their home entertainment system.

Currently the project includes photos from nearly 20 studios.

You'll get to see the desk of such greats as Sid Meier, Peter Molyneux and Tetsuya Mizuguchi along with plenty of others. Have fun.

Special thanks to intern Andrew Freedman for all of his hard work on this.
