Thoughts from the event organisers
EB Games Group Marketing Director, Debra McGrath was quoted as saying:
“The PAX dates moving earlier is fantastic news for the whole gaming community. We expect this to result in a stack more playable pre-release games for people get their hands on”
Luke Lancaster, Content Manager for PAX Aus, was apologetic in the possibility of disrupting peoples plans with the earlier PAX Aus but still as excited as ever, saying:
“We heard your cry for PAX to come sooner. It turns out planning PAX is much like scheduling a D&D game, and when we sat down to plan the first weekend we all had free was in October. Apologies to any other sessions we may have disrupted.”
