This year’s PAX Prime is 4 days instead of 3 because the convention center had already long since reached its maximum capacity. Therefore, the only solution available to get more people in was to make it longer since they didn’t want to change convention centers. As soon as I saw the first tweet about badges being on sale I had mine within five minutes or less. Good thing too because the 4-day badges sold out in less than 30 MINUTES.The rest of them sold out within a matter of hours.

This year they also added some sort of digital queue system. It’s probably not going to be long before the badges sell out like San Diego Comic-Con. I can’t see it not eventually reaching that point since every year there’s still going to be tons of disappointed people who will be more prepared for the following year.
