The Penny Arcade Expo otherwise known as PAX is now one step further in its goal for total world domination after the announcement of a new event in Australia. This is the third PAX event to be launched after PAX East and the following PAX Prime. PAX Australia will be held in Melbourne for 2013 and 2014, with the potential for it to potentially change location after this period (Sydney anyone?).
Penny Arcade President Robert Khoo said the demands of the global community dictated the expansion to Australia. “When we reached out to our international fans, the response from the Australian community for a local PAX was overwhelming,” Mr Khoo said.
“Melbourne has a long history of supporting the games scene, through showcasing cultural game exhibits to supporting world renowned game developers. Holding PAX Australia in Melbourne is the perfect fit for our show.”
PAX Australia will be held from the 19-21 July at the Melbourne Showgrounds, for more details check out the official PAX Australia site. PAX Australia will coincide with San Diego Comic Con, so this should stop hordes of Americans from flying over in search of nerdom.
