Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and PlayStation will once again grace their presence at the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC). The GDC is the largest annual gathering of professional video game developers, with focus on learning, inspiration, and networking. Sony Interactive Entertainment representative Ron Laserna reveals the details of their GDC activities via PlayStation Blog.
