Our friends over at VentureBeat have sent over a code that will save you $50 off of registration to the event. We were at last year’s GamesBeat and it was definitely worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone looking at the business behind virtual worlds, online games, venture capital for game companies, or funding in general. It pulls a good mix of game industry/Silicon Valley.
