What is PAX East?

Penny Arcade Expo, now lovingly known as PAX, is one of the largest gaming conventions in the U.S. Started in 2004, Penny Arcade wanted to create a show exclusively for games and gaming culture. The show originated in Bellevue before making it around the world to cities like Boston, San Antonio, Philadelphia, and Melbourne, Australia! It is known for having plenty of activities such as Freeplay areas, gaming tournaments, LAN parties, concerts, celebrity and industry panels, and an Exhibition Hall. No matter the platform, there is a place for all gamers at PAX East.

When and Where was PAX East 2023?

PAX East is exclusively located in Boston, Massachusetts. This year, the event was hosted at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from March 23rd to March 26th. The show started at 10 am every day and ended at midnight all days except Sunday.

Visit HYTE!

Did you visit HYTE and iBUYPOWER at our partnered booths during PAX East 2023? We had fun activities and giveaways planned for PAX East event goers. We raffled off hardware and accessories from AMD, Team Group, Mechs and Co., our very own HG10 headset, and the new HYTE CNVS qRGB playmat all weekend! We also showcased a The Last of Us custom PC mod project built by Blue Horse Studios. It was a massive hit on the PAX East floor, and we loved seeing your guys' reactions (online and offline!) of this amazing custom PC build.

What did we bring to PAX East 2023?

  • The Last of Us mod
    • We worked with Ron Lee Christianson of Blue Horse Studios, be quiet!, and iBUYPOWER on an amazing PC mod for PAX East 2023. Inspired by The Last of Us, Part 1, the HYTE Y40 was turned on its side to depict this bone-chilling scene of Ellie and a Clicker.

  • Street Fighter IV Y40's
    • In partnership with iBUYPOWER and Intel Gaming, our Y40 ATX PC cases received the SFIV makeover! A total of 8 Y40's featured a classic Street Fighter character on the PAX West 2023 floor. Were you able to catch a glimpse?
