The festivities kicked-off Thursday night with the opening reception for the 2011 Pushbutton Summit, and ChAIR was presented with Utah’s Digital Leadership Award. Following the presentation of the award, Donald and Geremy spoke to the audience about the history of ChAIR and the Company’s vision for the future of digital entertainment.
GEEX opened on Friday with a ChAIR and Epic Games booth featuring playable Gears of War 3 and Shadow Complex stations and the debut of the Infinity BladeFX arcade machines. Convention-goers were super excited to play Infinity Blade on the giant arcade touch screens for the first time.
On Saturday, Donald and Geremy spoke to an audience of gamers about Infinity Blade and provided a sneak preview of Infinity Blade 2. The entire ChAIR team was in attendance for a 2-hour autograph signing, which delighted gamers with an opportunity to meet the team and get an exclusive signed Infinity Blade swag. Later that day, prize packs were awarded to the winners of the Gears of War 3 tournament, who beat out 80 contestants to take home limited edition GOW3 Xbox 360’s signed by Epic developers and staff.
