The Crew goes East! Join the ASTRO Family from March 10 – 12 for PAX East 2017! Boston will once again host three days of the gaming industry’s latest and greatest for the Penny Arcade Expo. Packed wall to wall with video games, eSports, community events, board games, panels and parties, the Boston Convention Center will be the hub of learning what’s in store for the year. The ASTRO Gaming booth will feature brand new products, great deals on our gear, and gaming competitions. And whether you’re new to PAX or curious about what it’s all about, our latest video has everything you need to know!
Alright! Once again, Cartoon Network has delivered on some great gear! We’re stoked to announce 5 new sets of Steven Universe Speaker Tags for your A40 TR and your A38 Bluetooth Headsets! These Speaker Tag sets are only available in the ASTRO Gaming booth at PAX East right now, but be sure to keep an eye on ASTROGaming.com for news on when they will be available online!
Unlock your cross-compatibility achievement by adding a Base Station to every next-gen console and control all your wireless audio with one headset. The standalone A50 Base Station for PlayStation 4/PC can be used with the Xbox One A50 Headset, and vice versa. That means you only need one headset across both platforms. You can purchase both the Xbox One Base Station and the PS4 Base Station in the ASTRO Gaming booth and online at ASTROGaming.com!
Want to commemorate your awesome time at PAX East? Be sure to grab a set of PAX East 2017 Speaker Tags for your A40 TR and A38 Bluetooth Headsets! These sell out FAST so don’t wait! Grab your set at the booth! Better hurry!
Whether you’re joining the ASTRO Family for the first time or needing to upgrade your gear, if you stop in and shop at the booth you’ll save 20% on everything from headset to Base Stations to bags! The savings don’t stop at the show, though! Save 20% on everything at ASTROGaming.com and use the promo code ‘PAXEAST2017’ at checkout!
