Today Oct. 23, 2013 tickets went on sale for the 2014 Penny Arcade Expo East, aka PAX East, which will be taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Mass. on April 11-13, 2014. The three-day badges, which were $75 a pop, have been completely sold out on the convention's official website within a short stunning 45 minutes. The highly saught-after passes are already being reold on Ebay for $500.
According to a Tweet by @Official_Pax:
PAX badge update: 3 day passes sold out, hotel site is slow but being worked on.
Those who still want to attend will need to purchase $40 single-day badges for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. You're allowed to purchase multiple badges, however by buying individual day passes you won't get the $45 savings of a three-day badge.
Last year's PAX East sold out in six hours. This year the price of single day badges has increased from $35 to $40. You'll still want to act quick if you want to attend, as single-day badges are likely to sell out soon as well.
PAX East is the public's chance to get their hands on demos of many unreleased video games. There's a huge table-top section, along with tournaments, concerts, and much much more.
Penny Arcade is a vastly popular webcomic by Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins that's centered around games.
