Hey Penny Arcade forums!
Harmonix Community Team here. If you’ve met us before, you know that PAX Prime is pretty much our favorite event ever. 2010 is no exception, especially considering how amped we are to be launching two pretty awesome titles this year. Rock Band 3 promises to be the definitive music game this year and Dance Central is getting everyone to move their butts.
This year, we’re taking our booth back to its DIY roots. We’re bringing a powerhouse RB3 7 player “All Instruments” setup and a Dance Central boogie-down setup and throwing them into the mosh-pit that is our 20x20 corner of the world. But other than the games and the A/V (and our smiling faces), that’s all we’re bringing. We’re hoping that YOU can help us make our booth feel like home.
In order to do so, we’ve put together this list of items for the Harmonix PAX 2010 “BYOBooth” Registry (with the blessing of the fantastic Mr. Khoo). It’s actually pretty simple. Sign up here to bring one of the items from the list. First person to sign up is the person bringing that thing. Depending on the tier of the item, you get some cool stuff from us. We feel at home, you get cool stuff – everyone wins.
1. You must sign up in this thread with your PA Forums + Real Name. We'll add your name to the registry and mark the item claimed.
2. One item per person! And please only commit to bringing something if you're actually coming to PAX, ya dig?
3. Items must be delivered on Friday before close of show
4. You must find one of the HMX folks at our booth and check your item in. At that point we will take photos of you with your item like WHOA.
5. You consent for us to use your photo on RockBand.com and affiliated sites to brag to everyone about how cool you are.
6. You should probably hang out with us and give us your email etc. It’ll be awesome.
7. You should only bring something that you won't mind leaving at a rowdy booth for a weekend. Chances are it'll get played with or eaten, so don't bring something of great sentimental or financial value.
Easy Difficulty – RB Swag Pack (Green Day RB, RB Track Packs) and stuff from our booth (shirts and whatever we got)
Medium Difficulty – 1 Free Disc Copy of either Dance Central or Rock Band 3 (your choice of console) at launch and stuff from our booth
Hard Difficulty – Disc Copies of Rock Band 3, Dance Central and Green Day: Rock Band (your choice of console) and stuff from our booth.
Expert Difficulty – 1 Rock Band 3 Keyboard controller, disc Copies of Rock Band 3, Dance Central, Green Day: Rock Band (your choice of console) stuff from our booth and a call out via the Message of the Day within Rock Band.
You give us your address and all the important info when you check your stuff in, we’ll ship stuff out to you when it’s ready for you to rock on.
We'll answer questions and update the thread as people sign up. First come, first serve. Sound good? Get to signing up!
Yours in Rock and Dance,
