GDC is one of the best times of year for people like us. The industry-only event is the premiere gathering of game audio professionals from around the world, and it looks as though the conference’s streak of bringing in speakers from abroad will continue this year with two guests from Japan.
Hitoshi Sakimoto will be discussing his 20 years in the gaming industry, while Norihiko Hibino will be talking up his work on the Metal Gear Solid series. I imagine both will be present at the Video Games Live show that will surely take place during the week of March 23-27, 2009, so even if you’re not an industry professional, you’re likely in for a treat!
Would you attend a VGL concert solely based on Sakimoto’s or Hibino’s appearance in the meet and greet line? Any ideas as to what Sakimoto may focus on while covering his lengthy career?Tags: Basiscape, GDC 2009, GEM Impact, Hibino, Metal Gear Solid, News, Panels, Sakimoto
