Penny Arcade Expo to take on the South

Sat, 04/12/2014 - 15:27 — ElektraFi

Announced at PAX East today, the Penny Arcade, in cooperation with ReedPOP, is set to add a new stop on their world domination tour. PAX South will debut this January in San Antonio, Texas. With 2 shows already in the US and the more recent addition of the Australia venue, this will be the fourth PAX show on the yearly conference schedule. 

According to the press release, 

The new show will build on the foundation of the PAX format giving fans a healthy mix of the latest and greatest in video games, tabletop games, game inspired music, competitive gameplay, and insight from leaders in the world of gaming. The annual events give gamers a PAX show for every season throughout the year. 

Personally, I have mixed feelings about the addition of this new event. I think it's great that they are expanding into another area of the country and I hear that San Antonio is a great place to visit, but this could really put a strain on already maxed out conference schedules for many devs and gaming companies. January seems to be a slow time of year for gaming news so maybe this will help spice things up. 

 PAX South will take place in San Antonio, Texas, January 23-25, 2015. The venue will be announced at a later date.

Looks like they're trying to keep out of the way of SXSW and QuakeCon. San Antonio is probably the most expensive place in Texas to hold something like this, but it's accessible from Austin, DFW, and Houston...they must be centralizing to maximize attendance. Regardless, San Antonio is an interesting choice.
