Going earlier will coincide with Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW), as well as avoid happening the same weekend as some of the biggest videogame releases of the year.
“We heard your cry for PAX to come sooner,” said Luke Lancaster, Content Manager, PAX Aus. “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.”
EB Games Group Marketing Director, Debra McGrath, said “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”.
