The man created both Pong
and Chuck E. Cheese's pizza, so you'll have to forgive us if we take pause whenever Nolan Bushnell
opens his bearded maw. The Atari founder is slated to take the stage at next week's LA Games Conference
, and will offer his thoughts on the current crop of consoles as well as where he believes the industry is headed. Straight into the nearest uWink
, no doubt.
Bushnell is just one of several speakers pegged to headline the event, which will include additional keynotes from PopCap top dog David Roberts, Qualcomm exec Mike Yuen and Benchmark Capital partner Mitch Lasky. The event is scheduled for April 28-29 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in LA, and should make for an interesting primer for E3's
media bombardment in June.
