PAX Prime 2013 – We have Tickets!!!!

Well, as reported by Polygon on April 24th, the PAX organizers reviewed their list of ticket purchases and cancelled those purchases for tickets in excess of the allowed limit.  At the time, it was reported that those tickets would go back on sale at some point in the future.

Cut to last night at 7:03 PM PST, where I received the following Tweet-2-SMS message from PAX…

@Official_PAX: Reclaimed tix to Prime 2013 here http://t.co/X5pUDsD3Co Max of 2 sets per order, multiple orders per person or household will be cancelled.

Knowing that these wouldn’t last long, I immediately jumped online and was able to pick up 2 sets of single day passes (there didn’t appear to be any 4 day passes available).  A few minutes later I received the following….

@Official_PAX: Well that was fast. All the reclaimed tickets are now sold out. (7:15 PM PST)

I don’t imagine there were many tickets available, so I thank my lucky stars that I was able to get tickets for my son and I.  Hopefully, a few other folks who were originally upset that they wouldn’t be able to go were also able to secure a few tickets as well.

A big thank you to the PAX organizers for cracking down on excess ticket orders and giving a few other people a chance to attend.  I also have to thank Twitter for getting the tweet out to me in time to take advantage of the offer.
