PAX 2013: Here's all the news that's worth your time

Hayden Dingman | Sept. 4, 2013
Everything you need to know about what happened at last week's big gaming convention in Seattle.

I turned to the developer talking me through XCOM. "...the real Ultimate Warrior?" I asked.

"Yeah," he said, looking bemused. Ultimate Warrior showed up at PAX just to hawk the latest wrestling game, WWE 2K14.

I'd offer you visual proof of this momentous occasion in gaming history, but the larger-than-life legend that is the Ultimate Warrior asked that we not take pictures and I reluctantly obliged.

Sony introduces Third Party Production team
On Friday Sony announced the formation of a new production team that will help developers bring their games to Playstation hardware. This Third Party Production team will work alongside the extant PlayStation Third Party Relations group to "bring [our partners'] beloved IPs to some new places," according to a Playstation Blog post from Third Party Production leader Gio Corsi.

It's a vague mission statement, to be sure, but it suggests that this team will help Sony deliver on their promise to make "nearly every" game developed for the Playstation 4 playable on the Playstation Vita. We already know that Third Party Production is working to port games from third-party developers like Gearbox across multiple Playstation platforms, as Sony confirmed that the team is already working on bringing Borderlands 2 to the Playstation Vita.

And...that's the news from PAX. Light for sure, though we did get our hands on dozens of independent and not-so-independent games. We'll have information on those in the coming days, so stick around.
