PAX Prime Had 25% of the Attendance of Gamescom
OK, so a lot of people went to PAX last weekend. Enough to make it the biggest PAX ever, in fact, and that’s not insignificant. I’m saying 70,000 people attended one of the largest games conventions in North America. Surely that’s nothing to sneeze at. But as I said in the headline, that’s only a fraction of the number that attended Gamescom. Looks like that convention is going to be the standard for years to come.
Of course, considering how quickly PAX badges sold out this year, who knows how many people would actually go if it were possible to fit more people into the Washington State Convention Center?
