Here's a cool pic I shot of the In Win Dragon Rider case lit up without flash. I really like the mesh front panel and the blue LED backlit In Win logo. Newegg is currently selling this case for $149.99 with free shipping.

Gamers could also purchase some t-shirts and other apparel from their favorite games like Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 at the back of the exhibition hall. This merchandise is also available on Steam too, but it's nice to see the quality of everything before you purchase it.

Last, but not least, I had to include this pic of the girls in front of the Tribes: Ascend booth. There's no real relation between these girls and the vendors at the event, but I included for you guys anyway. Enjoy.

Real smart. Bring an xbawks to the largest ... PC ... gaming event of the year.

Come on marketing. Get your act together!

In QL the marketing is left up to a web developer. You can do that when you introduce a genre creating sw as Quake was then. In 2011 they need to have somebody with other than a programming background running marketing.

Awesome. Can't wait to see the interview.

Have you also recorded the Carmack keynote Q&A?
