More from PAX: The Exhibition Floor

Even with long lines and crowded hallways, PAX attendees didn’t have to wait terribly long to play games on the exhibition floor on Friday. There’s a solid showing of recently released and upcoming games for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo Wii. Perhaps the biggest draw are the music games, which have a large presence on the show floor this year. Guitar Hero World Tour, Singstar, Wii Music, Rhythm Heaven, and Rockband 2 were all playable, with Rockband 2 consistently drawing the biggest crowds.

When the exhibition floor closed at 7:00, the crowds leaked out on to Pike Street, where several artists blasted chiptunes on the sidewalk. Check out the video below for a sampling from artists Circles and Fighter X.


Later that night, PAX held a showing of the film “Bip Festival: Reformat the Planet,” a documentary on the chiptune scene. You can watch the film online at Pitchfork TV this week only.
