It is pretty exciting that the organizers have selected Canada as the location for the 2009 Games Convention.

This year over 200,000 people attended the convention in Leipzig, Germany. Having the Games Convention in Canada will be a great step in validating our role in the video games industry; we not only have some great publishers, but lots of 1337 gamers, too!

It shouldn’t come as a big surprise, though. After all, what else are we supposed to do when it gets cold?
