PAX, originally known as Penny Arcade Expo, is a series of eSports festivals held in Seattle, Boston, Melbourne, and San Antonio. Founded in 2004 by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, PAX is a celebration of gaming culture. In 2016, PAX events are split in 5 different festivals – PAX South, PAX East, PAX West, PAX Australia, and PAX Dev. PAX West, formerly PAX Prime, will take place on 2-5 of September in the Washington State Convention Center.
PAX West is organized by the joint efforts of Penny Arcade and Reed Exhibitions. Penny Arcade is a web comic that focuses on video games and culture and is well-known for being the most popular and longest running gaming web comic in the world. Reed Exhibitions on the other hand, is the world’s first event organizer, with a portfolio of approximately 500 events in 40 countries.
Concerts are essential for the PAX festivals since the creation of the event in 2004. The first show will be on Friday at 8:30PM – 11:30PM featuring Video Game Pianist, MC Frontalot, and Bit Brigade! Next concert is scheduled to be Saturday at the same time. Fans can also enjoy the music of three other bands – Triforce Quartet, The 1ups, and Super Guitar Bros.
In the Console Freeplay Area, you can find a combination of classic and latest generation consoles. All the latest titles will be available for playing.
Publishers and Developers are giving details and information about unreleased hardware and games. With a hundred thousand square feet of show floor, all genres, platforms, and styles of games will be represented. This area is one of the most interesting things at PAX West!
The tournament, comprised of randomly selected pre-registrants, takes place across the three days of PAX. Each of the games played are publicly announced weeks before the show, but the secret final round is always a surprise.
A large computer area is also available for all PC fans. Of course, computers are outfitted with highest possible characteristics.
Last but not least there is something for fans of table games. With hundreds of free play tables, this area can easily entertain you through the whole event!
