PAX Australia has come and gone but the memories will be with us when we're old and grey. It was a truly spectacular event and we couldn't be happier with how it went down!
Colossatron: Massive World Threat was shown for the very first time and Aussie fans were treated to a playable demo before anyone else. The reaction was incredible and we can't wait to show more!
Our Fruit Ninja Kinect contest was also a massive hit and competition was fierce. Congratulations to Ilya Kaplan, Max Wright and Alyssa White who each managed to reach the top of our daily leaderboard to win an Xbox 360!
Finally, to all the fans who stopped by our booth -- thanks for making our visit so special. Your kind words, happy faces and epic costumes kept us going despite lack of sleep and cracking voices.
Your enthusiasm, knowledge and sense of community drives us to make bigger and better games with every release!
