New York City needs to actually have a sizable gaming industry first before they start hosting their own developer events.

For now, the biggest developer event on the East Coast is the Montreal International Game Summit.

Lots of developers come from the new England area... did you know the guys from epic where from up north?

nyc has a crazy art scene and interactive art is big there.

Yeah, but for a city of its size, it's pretty lacking in the games department.

Montreal is the main industry hub in the north east. It'd be great to see NYC grow though.

Actually its a good idea for New York. Were already seeing a trend of music, movies and tv shows being produced here so another medium like game development can be a great revenue source for the city.
