D.I.C.E. Europe is right around the corner, and even though most of us won’t be there, through the wonders of modern technology, we can still get to experience the full day of speaker sessions on Wednesday, September 25.
And why would we want to do that? Probably because it will give us a chance to hear about the present and future states of video games from some of the true power players in the industry.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Peep the full schedule of speakers below. All times are EDT, so adjust as necessary to fit your current location:
