    There are like, *two more* floors at the WSCC than PAX used last year, one of them with a Number of large ballrooms (that maybe can join into one ginormous room?)

    Only one floor really. the 5th floor of the WSCTC is show offices and a few small meeting rooms overlooking the 4th floor. Nothing huge or special.

    The 6th floor is the huge one, 2 huge ballrooms and a ton of large rooms. But PAX release said space is only increasing by 20%. That means no 6th floor (most likely its just 4AB (line area) from last year is now an Official part of pax rather than just a "OHSHITWHEREDOWEPUTTHISHUGEASSLINEOFPEOPLE!!!!1!" (said the convention center, lol)

    They should give the 6th floor. I, for one, would like to see Ballroom dancing as an Omeganaut competition. ;)

    (what do you MEAN you can use a ballroom for more things than dancing?)

    Ok... so they said that they are doubling their expo space. Well last year, according to the WSCTC floor plans, the expo hall was 64,000 sq ft. The main theater next door was only 30,000 square feet. Not big enough to double the expo hall floor space.

    Now if you add the PC (BYOC and Freeplay) room, the Skybridge (the area between PC and the Expo hall and main theatre) and the expo hall and main theater... then you get your 120,000 sq ft. So it looks like things are going to be looking a little different this year?

    Seriously. That's an intimidating amount of space... I can't actually visualize that. How many football fields would that be? =)

    um... the sq ft of a football field from back of endzone to back of endzone and sideline to sideline is 57,600 sq ft/

    So we're looking at TWO WHOLE football fields and about 1/5 of another one.

    EDIT: Ok, I did the specific math and it's 2 whole fields with almost 22 yards of another one.

    I'm still going to see it all, even if my eyes explode from stimulus overload.

    E for everyone is going to try to go toe to toe with pax but I figure this. They will fail miserably because even without the exhibitors(Very unlikely) Pax will be fun. The proximity to many game developers helps PAX a great deal since it saves companies that much more to be involved with it.

    I knew E4All was going to bow down.

    Also when I saw Joystiq put "great success" quotes, all I could think of was Borat.

    I wonder if they'll still show up in front of PAX wearing their Teletubbies shirts?

    It'll be much nicer to have a massive exhibit area, the one last year was already feeling stale by the end of the first day.

    But I still wandered around it anyway.

    Oh, and any booth that blocks off traffic will recieve hatemail.

    Maybe E For All will get their own booth at Pax this year...

    Given that Khoo and friends can say no to Booth people I find this unlikely. We should do an expose on them if they decide to do this again. We need more pics to humiliate E for all.

    I like how joystiq says to expect a show "Similar to last year." so another E for Empty.

    I ran into the E4All folks last year while I was walking to the car to feed the parking meter. They were handing out stuff so I took some not even knowing who they were but thinking they were with PAX... by the time I had got to the car and realized they were a competitor I was a bit peev'd

    I'll just have to use my strobe light.

    It just will not be the same, without the glow stick!
