Microsoft will be at PAX East, Sony and Nintendo won't

PAX East will see plenty of big names descend upon Boston on April 11-13, from Microsoft to Oculus to Ubisoft to Square Enix. And plenty of you, I'm sure. Side Questing stumbled on the full list of exhibitors, which you can see below and plan what you'll spend the weekend checking out (besides booze and too many fedoras).

Neogaf poster kyoya did a comparison to last year's exhibitor list to see who has bowed out this year, including Nintendo, Sony, EA Games, Capcom, Sega, Warner Bros Interactive, Twisted Pixel and Deep Silver. Some big names. I guess they're saving themselves for E3. Which is terrifyingly near.

A little less than 3 more months for E3. Damn the year is flying by. Let's see what new announcements come out from this year's PAX

Geobros852d ago

This does not surprise me...

majiebeast852d ago

Sony,Nintendo,EA,Sega and Capcom are all not attending.

Dumb move by them, all company's should do all the PR they can.

To drum up support for? The PS4 is out there and advertised all over the place. Pax draws in a specific crowd who would already know about what the PS4 offers. Putting up a stand/conference isn't cheap. Sony, amongst others, may not see the point since E3 is just round the corner and they aren't releasing anything in that in between period

PAX and Penny Arcade are MS buddies anyway. I wouldn;t waste my time with them if I were Sony. It's like giving Polygon an exclusive look at a PS game- by the time it's done your game is trashed while MS is praised.

Remember yesterday when the Internet crapped themselves over the news that Nintendo would not be showing up, and it was "more doom".

Now Sony and others aren't going and it's "ok".

* Basically, E3 was always the focus of Sony, Nintendo and most likely Microsoft as well.

Microsoft said they had to remove stuff from their E3 presentation because they had " Too Much".

This is probably what they are showing at Pax. The stuff that got cut from E3.

Cool, can't wait for some new stuff to unveil on the XB1 at PAX! Hopefully we will see some stuff that didn't fit in MS' upcoming 90 mins E3 conference that Phil Spencer was alluding to.

iamnsuperman852d ago

Whatever they do I hope they don't pull what they did at Pax Prime last year.

That was some insulting use of PR

MichaelLito79852d ago

I agree MS is on a roll with all the good news and being at PAX should continue to build up more momentum.

Note: hope they bring a few surprises to PAX.
