The Reboot: GDC 2008 Highlights

A record 18,000 people attended this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, CA. The five-day event featured 400 sessions, the GDC career pavilion, keynotes by Microsoft’s John Schappert and Ray Kurzweil and other GDC-related events including an evening with Will Wright and Video Games Live. In this episode of The Reboot, I givemy take on some of the highlights of this year’s event, including Logitech’s new GT5 Prologue racing wheel, Dark Sector and Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds.

    the weapon in that “dark sector” game reminds me of the movie “krull”.

    from what i’ve read and understand, intel’s skulltrail platform only supports fully buffered memory, which increases latency and is not what you would expect from a gaming rig. but who knows. maybe the rest of it is fast enough that you won’t even notice. it’s basically a mac pro running windows.
