European Parliament to Hold Video Game Conference

The European Parliament will convene a video game conference next week, reports Edge Online.

The gathering will promote the economic and cultural benefits of the game business. Dutch MEP Jules Maaten (left), who is coordinating the event, said:

Europe has to encourage the further development of creative sectors like the games industry. Everybody would gain from such additional focus: the developers, the economy, but also the consumer and I’m advocating an EU programme for the stimulation of the European games industry.

    While Australia is technically a part of the Brittish Commonwealth, they have very little to do with Europe, which is on the wrong side of the planet for them.
    Austria is a different matter ofcourse.

    Would LOVE to see Germany’s response to this, considering their recent desires to BAN various media products.  I don’t see Australia among the list of states of the Union, so at least there’s one less problem for them to deal with.

    Heh, I pictured it as business and political-mided people trying to grasp the technical understanding of the creation of games. "Today we are going to discuss what polygon count means and why is it so important…"

    It’s an EU conference, expect boredom and lots of people abusing expense accounts.
