devil may cry 5

pax west

PAX West is starting on Friday, August 31.  It’s being held in the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle and both Xbox and PlayStation will be there with demos panels and more.  In this post, we are going to explore all of those demos and where you need to go.  Which is your go-to – PlayStation or Xbox?  We often talk about Android and iOS rivalries, but we’ve never really discussed this one.  Maybe it’s not worth it because with many games now you can play across different consoles.  That said, I’m still interested to know who prefers which console and why.


PAX attendees also have a chance to earn a “Cuphead” Pinny Arcade pin, participate in a “Tomb Raider”-themed scavenger hunt and more. Meanwhile, Mixer fans can meet up with some of their favorite broadcasters and possibly walk away with some free swag. Mixer partners, developers, and more will also appear on PAX’s main stage.

The Xbox booth is located in the North Hall on the 4th floor and will have a number of demonstrations including:

  • “Forza Horizon 4”
  • “Tom Clancy’s The Division 2”
  • “Shadow of the Tomb Raider”
  • “Devil May Cry 5”
  • “NBA 2k19”
  • “Metro Exodus”
  • “Kingdom Hearts III”
  • “Tunic”
  • “Ooblets”
  • “Kingdom Two Crowns”
  • “Generation Zero”
  • “Bendy and the Ink Machine”
  • “Supermarket Frenzy”
  • “My Time Portia”
  • “State of Decay 2” DLC

In addition, Xbox and Mixer members are holding the following panels during PAX West:

  • Building Your Streaming Community – a council of content creators will discuss the challenges of building a streaming community.  Many myths will be smashed and facts shared.  This will be held in the Wyvern Theater, on Saturday, September 1 from 3-4 p.m.
  • The Xbox Adaptive Controller: Designed with the Community – Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb will lead a conversation about the Xbox Adaptive Controller with its creators, community experts and members of organizations like AbleGamers and Stack Up.  This will be held in the Sasquatch Theater, on Sunday, September 2 from 12:30-1:30 pm.
