The D.I.C.E. Summit 2008 kicked off with a "Visual Fight Club," sponsored by Autodesk, in which games industry professionals took the stage to debate key issues.
Mitch Lasky of Benchmark Capital and Keith Boesky of Boesky & Co. led "Round One," arguing over the merits of consolidation - or lack thereof.
Lasky doesn't think that consolidation kills innovation. To the contrary – consolidation is necessary for innovation.
