The lights are on
The annual industry convention D.I.C.E. usually features a who's who of video game designers giving presentations on a number of topics. Today, some new speakers, including Mega Man and creator Keiji Inafune, were added to the list of presentations.
The new announced speakers announced today are:
Keiji Inafune of Comcept and Capcom
Rami Ismail of Vlambeer
Hilmar Veigar Petursson of CCP Games
Palmer Luckey and Brendan Iribe of Oculus VR
Other speakers scheduled to appear at D.I.C.E. include EA founder Trip Hawkins and Unity CEO David Helgason.
For a complete list of speakers, go to the D.I.C.E. official page.
D.I.C.E. takes place February 4-6 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Our Take:D.I.C.E. is always a highlight of the year in the game industry, and this year should be no different. It will be interesting to see what Inafune, who's recently become the first big-name Japanese developer to go to Kickstarter for funding, has to say. He's certainly never been afraid to be critical of the industry.
