I hope GDC becomes more Multi-cultural in the future! This is an awesome way to start!

Wow GDC and CES are really picking it up with E3 being debunked last year. Great news hope we get to hear more about the games they are currently development like FF13.

Yeah quite big news, that these devs are coming over. I wonder what kind of surprises are in store. Last year GDC was the unvieling of Home and Little Big Planet...
