Normally, Sunday afternoon marks the end of PAX Prime. The publishers and vendors pack up and nerdy conventiongoers dream of Boston in the Springtime or next year’s Prime expo. But not this year. This year, PAX Prime is going a whole ‘nother day and won’t conclude until Monday, September 2.
And here’s what you can see with your remaining two days on the show floor:
- Nintendo: Pokemon X/Y, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and a lot more.
- Sony Computer Entertainment: Killzone: Shadow Fall, InFamous: Second Son, DriveClub, Knack, Gran Turismo 6, Beyond: Two Souls, and a lot more.
