RipTen: Do you make games? Do you want to hang out with other people that make games without being bothered by all those pesky fans and reporters!? Well PAX has got the event for you!!
I'm gonna sneak in and yell NERDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And this will benefit who exactly? I mean, isn't it just a restricted, geeky party? They can't make announcements because there's no press, so why do we even need to know about this?
Its also a chance for maybe other developers to acquire some new talent, share thoughts etc. Which isn't a bad thing.
Seems like a good idea. Probably won't be hyped very much but could be good for Devs
Doubt any major companies jump on board full fledged...you can't do anything. They only attend these to get free media and announce things to the fans. This is more for the smaller companies to get togehter and talk about what their plans are. GDC is where the major companies go. They show off all their plans, but allow media to attend also so more people can hear about it and they get more opinions.
