[UPDATE] ReedPop global gaming content director Guy Blomberg clarified a few points and responded to concerns in a post on Twitter. Some voiced concerns about a retailer, EB, joining forces with a community event. Blomberg stressed that “nothing is being taken away” from PAX as a result of the partnership. Instead, the two companies working together will help add “more cool stuff” like panels. Regarding ticket prices for PAX Aus, they will be “around the same” as 2017, though specific price points have not been announced.

– Ticket prices for PAX Aus will be around the same as last year.
