The visual arts representatives on the GDC board will conduct a panel session concerning the state of the industry: where we are, where we are going, and what may prevent us from getting there. Topics of discussion will include console transition issues, mobile graphics, PC dominance, the state of DCC tools, and visual targets expected for next-gen platforms, along with a discussion of career issues and staying technically relevant for the future of the game industry. In addition to the panel discussion, there will be ample time for audience questions and group participation.
