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.
