Game Developers Conference Underway in San Francisco

Posted on March 7, 2007

The Game Developers Conference is currently underway in San Francisco. Gamasutra is offering live coverage of the GDC here on its site.

PodTech's Rio Pesino spoke with Game Developers Conference Manager Jane Pinckard about the event and whether its trying to be the new E3, which used to be gaming's biggest expo. She also explains the difference between the GDC and a E3 type of event.

The event most likely to replace the E3 is the E for All Expo which is to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in October. The GDC does include the annual Game Developers Choice Awards at the conference and this year's winners will announced later today.

Update: Gears of War took home the coveted Best Game title as well as awards for technology and visual arts. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess won for Best Writing and Wii Sports won for Game Design.
