Wired has a look at the two leading videogame music concerts
touring the U.S. right now, comparing and contrasting their musical selections and performer talent. 'Play!' and 'Videogames Live' are competing for the musical soul of a nation, with different takes on the genre. From the article: "It may seem like there would be little room for two such shows in the same music season -- but the producers behind these acts are taking very different tacks. Play! A Video Game Symphony is being billed as a highbrow event, putting musicianship front and center and even featuring composer cameos. The competition, Video Games Live, which debuted last week in San Jose on the final day of the Game Developers Conference, is staging an equally elaborate show, but here the games remain the star attraction."
