Sony dates Fan Faire 2011, registration now open

Posted by: Chuck at 4/10/2011 7:51 AM
Sony Online Entertainment has announced that they will be having their annual Fan Faire on July 7-9 at Bally's Hotel in Las Vegas.  Those who are interested in going can go online and register for the event now.  Attendees will get a goody bag which will include some t-shirts, digital copies of Everquest II expansion packs, access to the events of the show, some special in-game items, and a bevy of other trinkets.

I'm guessing the tone will be a little different this year given the massive layoffs that SOE announced last week and I'm guessing the tone of a lot of the panels will be about where the company goes from here.  I'm still a little disappointed that The Agency won't ever see the light of day but it is what it is.
