The confab, set for Sept. 20-22 at Hollywood and Highland, will focus on such topics as the growth of social gaming, the rise of glasses-free 3D, augmented reality and cloud gaming.

“Similar to HDTV and Blu-ray, 3D adoption will be led in large part by gamers,” Hocking said.

“One of the most important factors in the continued growth of the 3D market is the need for the games industry to produce high-quality 3D experiences.”
