More speakers announced for International Games Summit

With this year's International Games Summit just weeks away, event organiser ELSPA has announced the names of three more leading industry figures who have signed up to speak at the event.

Rory Armes, vice president of Electronic Arts European Studios, will join Nintendo UK general manager David Yarnton and SCE UK managing director Ray Maguire on a panel to discuss the factors which make a game a global hit. The session will be chaired by MCV publisher Stuart Dinsey.

Previously confirmed speakers include Microsoft's Peter Moore, Robert Garriott of NCsoft and SCEE president David Reeves. Adrian Hall of the Department for Education and Skills, which is co-hosting the event together with ELSPA and BT, will also deliver a speech on the role of computer games in the educational curriculum.

Other sessions already announced will focus on online gaming, the media's perception of games, market research and piracy, with speakers to include Vodafone's Graeme Ferguson, Future CEO Greg Ingham and Ubisoft's Alain Corre.

The ELSPA International Games Summit will take place on June 21-22 in London. More information about the event, and how to book a place, is available on the ELSPA website.
