Anti-video games advocate and lawyer Jack Thompson has said that he will be present at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) for another round of debate. This was mentioned in a motion Thompson filed with the U.S. District Court in Florida.
Details about the debate are still hazy. So far, nobody from the GDC has confirmed whether or not Thompson’s statements are true.
In a motion filed with the U.S. District Court in Florida, anti-video game lawyer Jack Thompson has claimed that he will be reprising his VGXPO debate at this year’s Game Developers Conference. Thompson was at VGXPO Saturday where he debated with Lorne Lanning after the screening of the controversial documentary, Moral Kombat.
According to GamePolitics, Thompson claims in the motion that in attendance was “the man who organizes the… Game Developers Conference”, who then asked that he reprise his VGXPO debate:
Because of the quality and coherence of my presentation, I was then asked by the GDC to reprise the Philadelphia debate, this time in February in San Francisco in a 5000 seat arena, as the keynote event.
GDC Organizers have yet to comment on or verify Thompson’s statements. We’ll bring you more updates as soon as we get them.
