The lights are on
Sony's clearly not messing around at this year's PAX. The company is bringing more than three dozen playable PS3, Vita, and PS4 games to its booth, giving attendees a chance to check out games including Infamous: Second Son, Knack, and Killzone: Shadow Fall for themselves.
First, here are the games:
PlayStation 3 Games
PlayStation Vita Games
PlayStation 4 Games
Sony's also giving away 500 PlayStation 4 Passports each day, which are described as being "your key to winning awesome PlayStation prizes," including games. They're calling it a passport, so PAX attendees will likely get it stamped when they play various games in Sony's booth. Media Molecule will also be giving out four different Tearaway badges that visitors can collect at the PlayStation booth. Amazon will be giving away T-shirts for people who preorder games that are being shown, too.
Finally, Sony's rounded up an impressive group of panelists, who will be speaking about The Last of Us' development, how Seattle has influenced Infamous: Second Son, and on the subject of gender diversity in games. Here's Sony's breakdown of each of those panels, including locations and times (Pacific)

Our TakeNintendo revealed its PAX schedule last week, and now we know what Sony's up to. Your turn, Microsoft. Sony's definitely going to be a tough act to follow, especially when it comes to providing such a wealth of hands-on time with next-gen games.
