Anyone else get the feeling EB Games has killed PAX?
Last year was probably the worst year, the interactive areas were minimal, lines were huge because there was not enough content, large section was dedicated to push merchandise sales rather than the show content. EB seem to only care about selling merchandise, same stuff you can buy from any EB store (oh wait they discount it for PAX... like the stores don't have sales every day of the week). EB Expo were always terrible, they really add nothing to PAX
Seems like ticket sales this year are going very slow, there is no hype around the event. The merchandise is rubbish, first year i haven't pre-ordered merch. Last year i spent the least of any year on merch at PAX
A lot of people i know are not going this year, may missing the event for the first time ever... Interested to hear what other people think, but my opinion is EB has killed PAX
