    The French government announced today that three people will be made chevaliers in the order of arts and letters. Michel Ancel and Frédérick Raynal of Ubisoft fame, along with Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo. This is the first time that video game creators have been made chevaliers, finally recognizing the contributions of video games to the art form.

    In French:
    Le ministre a achevé son discours en saluant l'émergence de ce qui peut maintenant être considéré comme un art majeur : "Vous avez durablement révolutionné l'univers du jeu vidéo, en lui donnant ses lettres de noblesse, avec la place qu'il occupe désormais au sein de la création vivante, entre le cinéma et les autres arts, grâce à de véritables prouesses techniques".
