Don't live near Boston, Seattle, or Melbourne? There's a new PAX and it will be held in San Antonio

PAX South to join PAX East, PAX Prime, and PAX Australia; will be held in January 2015.

[UPDATE] PAX South will run January 23-25, 2015.

The original story is below.

The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is expanding. Today at PAX East, creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins announced PAX South, which will take place in San Antonio, Texas in January 2015.

PAX South becomes the fourth PAX event. Others include PAX East (Boston), PAX Prime (Seattle), and PAX Australia (Melbourne). The show was announced minutes ago and we'll have more details as they become available.

We're still waiting on venue and ticket availability details.

AWESOME! It's been a while since I've been to San Antone! I'm really excited for this! We're definitely going!

I'd like PAX to come to NYC. it could be held at the Jacob Javits center. it's a large enough building to have for it.

i dont know why they made another one in the US. i would have thought they would of done one in England or near or around Sweden. 3 in the US seems like too many. developers will only have enough money from overseas tor outside of the US, to pick 1 or 2 to display their games at. i dont see them doing all three & they will most likely only pick the ones on either the West or East Coast rather than the Mid. i see it being a smaller convention than the other ones.

Seriously, were 2 in the US not enough? And Texas of all places? Ugh.

I live 20 to 25 minutes away from PAX Prime, and I still haven't gone to it. I've only tried to go twice, and both times the tickets were sold out extremely fast. I guess I have to be faster. Maybe this time, I don't know. I've been to the 'comicon' we have here though which is in the same place, and that was kind of cool I guess. I don't really have a problem seeing the stuff on the game sites though...

This should be interesting. Other than the NCAA tourney and a few Spurs playoff games, there rarely a reason for a bunch of people to flock to SA. January is also a decent month weather wise.

Don't live anywhere near an overrated, over-populated shit hole that costs way too much to live in?  Here's another overrated, overpopulated shit hole for you PAX lovers!  


Goddamn America.  Could you at least sometimes act like the midwest exists?  I swear, we never get any love.  The best we have is Gencon and it's about as interesting as attending a rock-examining convention.

I would of preferred another PAX outside of the US, Canada would of been perfect, Europe could of been a good on as well.

PAX Europe would do? I'm what a 12 hour flight from the US and 24 for Oz. I'm sure the other regions would also appreciate it.

@Ranma_X_basic  That's like me saying there should be a PAX in Dallas. You're close enough to Boston for PAX East to be enough.

@HailHellfire  i live in Melbourne and i went to the event last year and it was said that the they made a pax event in Australia because their was little compensation it was all most an open market, i don't see it being as easy to brake into Europe.

at least Americans have a golden triangle of pax now.

@FallenOneX  are you serious? San Antonio holds big conventions all the time. Not to mention, I'd the biggest tourist city in Texas. More people visit SA THAN New Orleans. By twice as much. Then there's Fiesta! Luminaria and tons of other things

@Chr0noid  San Antonio isn't overrated or overpopulated. Texas is a tech hub. Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin are major players in the industry. It's very logical that they would hold a major gaming and tech convention in this area.

@joshpostn @FallenOneX  I live here. The rodeo left not too long ago, and Fiesta is coming, but there's not much like this going on. Usually, it's in Austin, Dallas, or Houston.
