Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed for DICE 2011

Thursday, 4th November 2010 13:43 GMT By Johnny Cullen


DICE organisers have confirmed Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi as a speaker for next year’s event.

Yamauchi confirmed earlier this week, after much delay, Gran Turismo 5 has gone gold, which almost certainly means a 2010 release will happen for the racer.

Also confirmed for DICE are film-maker John Stevenson, 5th Cell’s Jeremiah Slaczka, Booyah’s Keith Lee and Cerny Games’ Mark Cerny.

“The D.I.C.E. Summit is the pre-eminent stage for creativity within the world of interactive entertainment,” said newly-made AIAS president, Martin Rae.

“We are pleased to feature some of the leading creative minds from the whole spectrum of interactive entertainment – film to traditional console games to casual games – come to share their philosophy and approach to producing entertainment.”

DICE takes place between February 9-11, 2011 in Las Vegas.

Thanks, GI.

    “I was misquoted about the disc’s being pressed. I said we’re waiting for the ‘best’ discs. Nothing is too good for this game.”

    He’s waiting ‘for the best discs’.

    What the fuck?

    So he is holding up pressing the game to put the code on what, diamond encrusted discs or something.

    Like I said; Ballbag.

    Ice cold. Related to that, why the fuck wasn’t it announced at SEMA yesterday? >:(

    I highly doubt that Sony are willing to let their biggest game slip past the Christmas season, so i’ll bet that it will be out at the end of this month or mid December at the absolute latest.

    i think they’re waiting for a good timing for a release date announcement.Right now it’s Microsoft’s hype over Kinect’s release so it would kinda fall off the radar.

    @11 Not off my radar.

    Patrick, you should probably add a disclaimer to your comment, in case windbags like Eurogamer post up on a report claiming an “anonymous source” told them things.
