OnLiveâ??s Pearlman and Sonyâ??s Jack Buser add to a star list of speakers

Sony, OnLive, Unity and EA set for GamesBeat

New speakers have been confirmed for this year’s GamsBeat business summit at GDC, with OnLive’s Steve Perlman and Sony’s Jack Buser adding to a list that already includes key players from Unity, EA and Zynga.

The second annual GamesBeat event – now officially tied with GDC – will focus on the emergence of ‘disruptive’ technologies that have recently challenged standard business models.

Solidifying that theme will be a keynote from OnLive CEO Steve Perlman – a serial inventor who wants to release a cloud gaming service that could singlehandedly diminish the standard PC rig-building market and, though a long shot, even rupture the physical game market.

Meanwhile, PlayStation Home director Jack Buser will join a panel to discuss Home’s part in a new era of disruptive game platforms.

These key new speakers already add to a packed list of industry heavyweights, from Unity CEO David Helgason to EA COO John Schappert.

Other notable panel speakers include Outspark CEO Owen Mahoney, Booyah CEO Keith Lee, PopCap co-founder John Vechey, hi5’s Alex St. John and Zynga’s Brian Reynolds.

You can attend GamesBeat with an All Access pass, though the GDC event offers a number of passes for different tastes and schedules.
