Top Cloud Gaming Events of 2014

The cloud gaming industry has begun to grow at a meteoric rate over the past couple of years. The first indication of this impending growth was the announcement of Onlive at the 2009 GDC, wowing industry professionals in the thousands with their revolutionary gaming platform. This trend would continue, with the relatively recent announcement by Sony that they would also be launching their own cloud gaming platform, Playstation Now, sometime in 2014.

With this noticeable uptick in interest in cloud gaming comes a welcome byproduct in the form of an increase in cloud-gaming events. Most cloud gamers are, at least when it comes to other cloud gamers, social creatures. Having a chance to interact not only with other gamers, but also the professionals that create them, is a huge draw for the average cloud-gaming aficionado.

So what cool cloud gaming events are on the horizon? Let’s take a look and see if we can’t find that one perfect event for you to attend.

Cloud Gaming Europe

cloud-gaming

No larger cloud-gaming event exists in all of Europe than Cloud Gaming Europe. Last year’s event included representatives of many top industry leaders, such as Electronic Arts, Onlive and Gaikai. The brochure for this year shows that this year will top last year by a wide margin.

If you have the opportunity to attend Cloud Gaming Europe this year, you will need to register first. The registration page can be found here, and you will also receive a discount of $200 by entering the code “TWEAK200” in the appropriate field on the page.

Cloud Gaming Europe will be held in London, UK, from April 7-8.

PAX East

Not all cloud gaming events are geared solely towards industry professionals. A perfect example of this would be PAX East, an event currently celebrating their 10th year running. PAX East is chock full of cool things to do, including console freeplay, concerts and a handheld lounge.

PAX East will be held in Boston, MA, spanning from April 11-13.

East Coast Game Conference

If you live in the United States and are unable to attend Cloud Gaming Europe, East Coast Game Conference is a suitable replacement. Touted as the largest video-game conference on the East Coast, East Coast Game Conference will leave you breathless with all of the activities and speakers they have available. Last year’s conference even included an opening-night party, provided by gaming-giant, Epic!

East Coast Game Conference will be held at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC on April 23-24.

NeuroGaming 2014

The future of cloud gaming is now. So many fabled technologies are finally coming to fruition, making former science fiction into science fact. NeuroGaming 2014 will address many of these cutting-edge technologies, including haptics, augmented reality and virtual reality. Each of these, as well as many others that will be showcased, will serve to increase the immersion factor of cloud gaming, potentially taking the industry in a whole new direction.

NeuroGaming 2014 will be held  at the Metreon in San Francisco, CA, from May 7-8, 2014

E3 Expo

No matter what part of the cloud gaming industry you are a part of, attending the E3 Expo is a must. Long recognized as one of the most attended events of video-gaming world, E3 brings all aspects of the gaming industry under one roof. Expect to see featured speakers from such powerhouses as Electronic Arts, Capcom and Bethesda.

The E3 Expo will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA from June 10-12, 2014.

As you can see, 2014 is poised to be one of the best years we have ever had in terms of cloud gaming events. No matter where in the world you are, you should have no trouble finding the perfect event for you to attend.
