Lately we have seen the San Diego Comic-Con
become more and more interested in the game industry with new game reveals, exhibits, panels and more. The biggest rival to San Diego Comic-Con is the New York Comic Con
. While it's only a few years old the pop culture convention had over 77,000 people attend in 2009.
For the 2010 edition to be held on October 8-10 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan, there will be quite a few game publishers on the exhibit hall including 38 Studios, Activision, Capcom, EA, Gazillion, Sega, Square Enix, THQ, Ubisoft and more. Intel will also be there with not only PC game demo stations but also the US finals of its Intel Extreme Masters
PC pro gaming tournament. Pro PC gamers will compete for over $60,000 in prize money playing games like Counter-Strike
, Quake Live
and StarCraft II
. The winners will also be heading to Germany in 2011 to compete in the world finals of the tournament.
NCsoft won't be on the show floor exhibiting but it will be conducting panels at New York Comic Con. It will also hold an meet and greet between fans and its developers for City of Heroes and Guild Wars 2 at the nearby Hudson Hotel on Friday
