Who is at the Gamestop manager's conference in Vegas? It starts tonight or tomorrow and it is usually good for lots of breaking news.

jstevenson said that a lot of media folks would be present and that Ted Price would be showing off a brand new single player level of resistance 2...

I hope this isn't a "behind closed doors" sort of event, and that we actually get to see footage of the new level.

Free Wii Points (4000), Marketplace Points, Animal Crossing free upon release, Gears 2 and Fable 2 free upon release, LBP free upon release, some older games (Greatest hits I think) and a bunch of shirts etc.

Less than least year actually.

Apparently you lucky bastard managers get copies of LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, Rock Band 2 and Too Human for free.
So this might boost their $24,000 a year wage up by a couple hundred bucks or so?

Tonight I got to hear Cammie Dunaway say "shit". :lol

I am also apparently the only manager here who knows what Rhythm Heaven is, as NO ONE ELSE applauded it.

I know a couple of people that went. Unfortunately the swag is from a Gamestop conference. This means when they get home they'll find out the CEO took it home, used it, and gave it to them like it was new.

I once saw Cammie Dunaway pistol whip a man half to death for looking at her cock eyed.

Just a brief, basic gameplay description XD

She also mentioned when discussing GTA Chinatown Wars that you can "use the stylus to tattoo your gang members!"

The keynote there should be starting any minute, and Ted is in the middle --- we won't be releasing footage of the level for a bit (till it gets a proper introduction to the gaming press) and hopefully no shaky-cam comes out (worst way to see it) but there will be screens as part of an up-coming cover story that should be out very soon.

Please tell me there is a new policy where they will now give you 5 dollars for every game you trade in. Is that what they'll announce?:lol
