Hey Xbox fans, PAX Prime is next week and what makes this event so special and uniquely different than some of the other industry events is, this show is all about gaming and open to the public. For those who managed to score tickets to the event, you will get an inside look at the video game industry and have the opportunity to play games that haven’t even been released yet. Xbox has been showing off some amazing games and accessories at some of the other events we’ve been to this year, and I can’t wait to share the experience with the PAX Prime audience.
