Labor Day might just mean a long weekend for some, but for gamers, it’s PAX Prime time: four days of games, panels, and camaraderie with our fellow players. As is custom, Xbox has a lot planned – Washington is our home base, after all. Here are some highlights – find the full rundown over at Xbox Wire.
Thursday: ID@Xbox Pre-PAX Open House
PAX doors don’t officially open until Friday, but we know a lot folks get into town early. That’s why we’re inviting everyone over to Microsoft’s Redmond Campus to play some new and upcoming indies on Xbox One. The event starts at 6pm, and we’ll even give you a ride. Find all the details here.
Saturday: Major Nelson Radio at PAX Prime
Saturday, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
For the 10th year in a row, it’s Major Nelson Radio at PAX Prime! Like a fine wine that has gotten better with age, Major Nelson Radio goes down smooth and leaves no bitter aftertaste.
Join Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson, e, lollip0p and JEF United as we record an episode of the award winning podcast “Major Nelson Radio” LIVE in front of a studio audience. We will have prizes, guests and probably fun.
Note: Clowns are not permitted at the recording.
Friday-Monday: Visit the Xbox Booth
The Xbox Booth [#412] is the place to play this holiday’s hottest blockbusters! We’ll be featuring hands-on Xbox One exclusives like Sunset Overdrive, remastered Halo 2 Anniversary and Forza Horizon 2, the highly anticipated Electronic Arts title Dragon Age: Inquisition and digital favorites like Ori and the Blind Forest, Killer Instinct, Project Spark, and Project Totem, plus various ID@Xbox titles.
We’re also leading panels, participating in Pinny Arcade, hosting a Halo Tournament with Twitch and giving PAX fans a way to put themselves in the world of Sunset City at the Paramount Theatre. Learn more about these activities plus more at our U.S. Events Website.
