Microsoft announced that it has moved the U.S. version of Gamefest, its annual game developers conference, into the first quarter of 2010, after receiving feedback from developers hoping to attend an event earlier in the year.
The conference was last held in July 2008, and is typically held during the summer, which Microsoft's partners believe to be inconvenient for studios preparing their releases for the approaching holiday season.
