PAX East Registration

PAX East registration is now underway (thanks Destructoid). Here's the deal:

Registration for PAX East 2012 has officially opened! As a heads up, this falls on Easter weekend. It wasn't our first choice by any means, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we're working with the city to hopefully prevent it from happening again. If you can make it, you'll probably want to check out our hotels page for discounted rates.

Also be warned, at Prime we had some issues with counterfeit badges being sold to unsuspecting attendees. Since we sell out of badges each year, when counterfeit badges get out there we run into over-capacity issues. Sure, this results in a more crowded show with longer lines etc, but our big concern is that it ends up creating a very real safety hazard. So be warned: If you buy a badge from someone that ISN'T us, you run the risk of getting stuck with a counterfeit badge which will not get you into the show. We need to take a hard line stance on this this year and are ramping up anti-counterfeiting measures, so as much as it pains us, if you buy a fake badge, we won't be able to help you. So use your head, be careful, and know the risks before buying from third parties!

Well looks like PAX is locked into Boston from now on. So much for ever going to one.

Would think they would pick a more sensible location on the East Coast like, I don't know, somewhere in the middle? Not to mention stupid expensive hotels. I don't remember paying ~$180+ for rooms at Otakon.
I'm going to guess Otakon doesn't generate the kind of attendance numbers that PAX does. PAX East will sell out months before the event actually happens even when it's on Easter.
