Penny Arcade today announced that due to overwhelming demand, pre-registration for Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) gaming culture fest slated to invade Washington State this August 25th-27th has been extended to August 3rd at 6:30pm pacific.

On the exhibit floor PAX '06 attendees can expect to get hands on with yet-to-be-released games and products from the likes of exhibitors Microsoft, Nintendo, Nvidia, ArenaNet, America's Army, Turbine, NCSoft, Ubisoft, Mythic, Sabertooth Games, Foundation 9, Rockstar, Flying Lab, Creative Labs, The Behemoth, Garage Games and Red Octane among others. In addition to pre-release games galore on its show floor, PAX offers attendees a host of game-related conference sessions, parties, concerts and contests, including the grand-daddy of game challenges, the Omegathon. Details of this year's Omegathon prize will be announced later this week.

Started by videogame-oriented comic strip creators Gabe and Tycho in 2004, Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is a 3-day, round-the-clock celebration of games and game culture. It includes an exhibition floor filled with playable demos of games that won't be on shelves until next year, a conference program of game industry speakers on topics related to gaming, music concerts, game tournaments and more.
