"Music is an incredibly important part of the gaming experience, and something Ubisoft takes very seriously" said Jon Rosenblatt, Ubisoft's UK Marketing Director, "With this in mind, we're thrilled to be involved in an event like Video Games Live which recognizes the importance of this creativity."
"It's great to have an amazing publisher like Ubisoft onboard," said Tommy Tallarico, co-creator and host of VGL, "We created Video Games Live not only to celebrate the industry for gamers, but also to show non-gamers how far the industry has come, and that video games should be taken seriously as an art form with a major cultural significance."
