PAX Prime saw 67,600 attendees through its doors in Seattle last weekend, and it sounds as though Mike and Jerry aren’t done yet.

BigDownload reported the attendance figure for the just-ended show, confirming a record for the expo.

The first PAX East in Boston last March brought in 52,290 attendees. It’ll move to a much larger venue in the city next year.

Flush with the show’s ongoing success, Penny Arcade bosses Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins have no hinted that they may be ready to move abroad with a new event.

Speaking to Gama at the show, the pair said that a third PAX event might happen and that it “would likely take place in a different country; preferably somewhere the duo want to visit.”

PAX was used for 2K’s Duke Nukem Forever reveal this year. Check out our interview with Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford on that here.
