Report: PAX Event Being Considered for Texas

July 17, 2012 -

According to this GameSpot report, the organizers of the Penny Arcade Expo may have their sights set on a third location for the popular fan-based gaming event: the great state of Texas. Speaking during the Penny Arcade Panel at Comic-Con this weekend, Penny Arcade co-founder Mike Krahulik responded to a fan question about the possibility of a PAX event in the Austin Texas area by saying that organizers are "aggressively exploring a third PAX very near you."

While he did not specifically say "Austin" in that sentence, it would make sense that a PAX event would be held there given the number of studios that call the capitol of Texas its home. Other events like the Game Developers Conference Online and QuakeCon do very well in the Lone Star state, so a PAX event in Austin doesn't seem like much of a stretch.

Should PAX come to Texas it will be the third annual PAX event to be held in the U.S. alongside PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington and PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.

Super, so that would place each PAX equally far from me.  *grumbles*

I hope they consider Michigan at least one year.

As a resident of Oklahoma, I would absolutely love this. Austin is only an 8 hour drive for me and that is more affordable than airfare to either coast.
