Ok, the issues *might* include us not being able to bring in a 
playstation due to licensing (even if it's our own...). So I really 
need the info on what games and what systems people were planning on 
showing (and bringing) AND whether or not they'll need a TV to show 
that game on.

So things like the Playstation/Xbox controllers and games *might* be 
an issue due to licensing and permissions. So the sooner we can sort 
this out the better! So let me know if this might involve your 
presentation and give me a list of what you are planning on bringing.

Now they *have* said that we should bring our own laptops (and/or usb 
or cd saved ppts) to present on -- so that suggests that if you have 
a game that you'll be showing on a laptop that you bring...that 
should be ok. It's just the console systems that might be an issue at 
this point.

ALSO...if you need Internet Connectivity, let me know ASAP!

Wow, the planning for this is getting more tight than it was for GDC! 
I think I've spent most of my week on this!

Make your hotel reservations NOW -- they are getting tight as I 
understand. Also, no need to register for the conference -- you'll be 

I'll be bringing an up-to-date PC laptop to the conference but that 
was all I was planning to haul overseas due to knowing that most 
everything I have won't work in the UK! But when we go to Tokyo in 
2007, I'm all set -- I know my stuff will work there plus I have 
Japanese versions of almost everything anyway. ;)
