The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences announced that the D.I.C.E. Summit 2008 has sold out (the first time since its inception in 2002) after receiving a record-breaking number of registration submissions from video game industry professionals planning to attend this year's event.

Based on possible cancellations, the AIAS will continue to keep a waiting list for interested attendees for the high-level interactive entertainment event being held in Las Vegas at the Red Rock Resort, February 6-8, 2008.

In an effort to maintain the integrity of the high-end, intimate conference designed to serve Academy members, the AIAS has always limited the number of attendees. The conference has attracted a dynamic line-up of high-profile industry leaders to discuss topics relevant to the current state of the video game industry, developing trends, and key issues facing publishers and business leaders.

The D.I.C.E. Summit 2008 will also play host to the 11th annual Interactive Achievement Awards ceremony on February 7, where industry leaders and members recognize the individuals and products that contribute to the growth of the interactive entertainment software business. Favored comedian, actor and proud game enthusiast, Jay Mohr will return for his third year to host the award festivities.

Registration for the Interactive Achievement Awards ceremony is still open and available; this includes the sponsored Game Invasion Pre-Party in the Cherry Nightclub and the COX Cosmic Bowling post-party, both located at the Red Rock Resort. Sign up to register for the awards ceremony.

The Interactive Achievement Awards can be viewed live for the first time via webcast on GameSpot and Comcast HD Video on Demand. This gives game enthusiasts worldwide the opportunity to experience the excitement first-hand as the coveted Interactive Achievement Awards are presented to the geniuses and giants behind the most popular video games of the year.
