Similar to PC Freeplay, Console Freeplay allows PAX attendees to play current generation console games.

Description

Got some time to kill between panels? Need a break after spending the last 10 hours on your feet in the Expo Hall? Happen to enjoy video games? Spend some time in Console Freeplay! Whether you want to get a taste of the next gen consoles, or are itching to play your modern favorites, Console Freeplay has got what you crave. But maybe you just want a chance to relive the adventures of your younger self. If so, check out what archeological treasures lay await in Classic Console. Maybe, just maybe, this is the day you’re finally able to shoot the dog in Duck Hunt.

Attending

To check out a game an attendee must have a valid state issued drivers license or ID. Once a game is chosen by the attendee, an Enforcer will take your license/ID as collateral for the checked out game. The license/ID that was used as collateral will be released to its owner only when the game/equipment has been returned to the checkout area.

Console Freeplay is very busy throughout the PAX weekend. But it is known to get very busy after the closing of the Expo Hall. Be prepared to wait.

Expected Content

Expect to see these current-gen consoles.

  • Microsoft Xbox One
  • Sony Playstation 4
  • Nintendo Wii-U

What about older consoles like SNES? Where can I find those?

For older "retro" consoles you should check out the Classic Console area!
