PAX attendance hits 58,500

According to this BigDownload story, 58,500 people attended this year's PAX, trouncing last year's record of 37,000 attendees.

More people means more problems, obviously. Like over-crowding.

"Regarding the overcrowding, it was definitely a symptom of the popularity of the show, but not one that can't be overcome," said Penny Arcade biz guy Robert Khoo.

"At two or three of the main theatre events, 3-4% of the line wasn't able to make it, but we hear those 3-4% loud and clear. We have a few ideas to manage that problem for 2009 including wristbands for popular events or just a straight-up hard count of people in line. The worst thing is if people line up for something and end up not getting in."
