With PAX East done and dusted, Penny Arcade has announced the first details of PAX Prime ahead of this year’s Seattle event. The Washington State Convention Center is playing host again, but some events will be spread across nearby venues – the Annex, Paramount, Seattle Sheraton and Grand Hyatt, for example.
