NVIDIA's GeForce LAN 6 Event Sells Out

By Published September 20, 2011 at 7:09 pm

We reported on nVidia's GeForce LAN 6 event the other day (which will be hosted on the USS Hornet aircraft carrier), and within only two hours of opening registration, they've already run almost completely dry on open slots; nVidia told sent the following statement to us:

"Just two hours after opening registration, seats for the highly-anticipated bring-your-own computer (BYOC) gaming area sold out, as gamers reserved their spots to play in the highly anticipated 64-person LAN featuring Battlefield 3."


That's right, nVidia claims to "give gamers [the] first chance ever to play three Battlefield 3 multiplayer maps" with their GeForce LAN 6 event; in doing so, they seem to have realized something important: the only thing more persuasive than free swag is, of course, early access to big-name video games.

There are still some general admission tickets available for the event (check out registration options here) for those of you that'd like the option to board the aircraft carrier, check out exhibitor booths, and play in some free-play area competitions. The event is from October 14-16 in Alameda, California.

The event will offer "48 hours of non-stop PC gaming, fun contests, amazing prizes, and special stage presentations," along with Battlefield 3 multiplayer, which is its first public play appearance.

EVGA, Toshiba, Corsair, MSI, Zotac, Cooler Master, Cyberpower PC, Digital Storm, Plantronics, Systemax, V3 Gaming PC, ASUS, Antec, Falcon Northwest, and Kingston Technology are sponsoring the event, so you can expect some sort of giveaways and swag from those guys -- besides, they're generally incredibly knowledgeable and can answer any burning PC hardware questions you have!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
