Microsoft has moved Gamefest, the company’s annual game developers conference, to the first quarter of 2010, writes Gama.

Apparently, several attending development houses had contacted Microsoft requesting the move due to it’s usual summer slot proving inconvenient this year.

“Gamefest … should revolve around game developers,” said the official site. “We sought out feedback from developers who attended Gamefest 2008 and we found that, given development schedules and ship dates, the conference would be more convenient if held at a different time in the calendar year.”

Gamefest is the devlopment conference formerly known as Xfest and is based in Seattle.
