    Looks like a misprint. I'm guessing that there's only one confirmation email, not two.

    I just purchased 2 badges for myself and my man! Between booking the Westin and buying the PAX badges today, it's almost real (even if it's 150+ days away still)!

    Can't wait to see everyone again! :)

    Wonderful news. I will be purchasing a pair of tickets as soon as I get paid next.

    For those in the know about hotel situations (while I'm stuck at work) what is the pricing and availability at the Seaport Hotel?

    Go to the hotel registration website, it will tell you when you do a search.

    Are they not doing group discounts this year? I don't see anything on the registration page or the FAQ page about it...

    There are no group discounts anymore. Sorry.

    FYI: apparently the registration system does not like it if you live in Washington, DC. I tried to register with two different credit cards like 20 times before i realized thats what was messing up the system. You have to switch to "Other" for your State/Country and then fill it in yourself. Annnoooying.

    Do you get any sort of discount for buying your pass way ahead of time? It doesn't seem like it ($65) I guess I'm just used to other cons where the earlier you buy the cheaper your pass is

    It's only cheaper to buy a 3 day pass as opposed to 3 single day passes. No discounts otherwise

    A long while ago there was a discount for purchasing online pre-con as opposed to at the door. This no longer matters because the con always sells out via online purchases and has zero "at the door" badges available.

    It does seem more expensive this year, doesn't it.

    For 3 day badges East 2011 was $55, Prime 2011 was $60, East 2012 is $65.

    Blizzcon for 2 days was $175. It's all relative (and value is 100% subjective)... but I think PAX is still a pretty good deal ;)

    Also note that where price is concerned, some amount of that is going toward new anti-counterfeiting measures, which will cut down on the excessive crowding that some experienced at Prime due to the surge of fakes; many would argue that's money well spent!

    I've already booked my hotel but frankly I wasn't ready for this to hit - hopefully in a few weeks I'll have the $$ to pick up my tickets. They generally last until the end of the year don't they?

    It's going to be a sell out for sure, but I don't recall when they start running short. There's also the fact that the event seems to get more popular with each year, so you have to be careful about holding out.

    They do tend to give a warning on the PAX site before they run out.

    This was the exact same problem I had. I thought there was something wrong with my card the first 10 times

    a couple people have asked. Yes we have increased the size of PAX East this year. I think by about 20%

    Last year, badges lasted until February. I suppose due to them making it larger that could still happen, but PAX Prime 3 day badges sold out in 22 days. I am guessing somewhere between those two times is where we will lie ;)

    The key is, if you don't *have* to wait, don't wait.

    Thanks for the update. Passes purchased. =) I have a feeling the convention is going to sell out rapidly this year.
