PwnEm Con 2012 comes to North Bergen in Hudson County, NJ

Unleash your inner gamer at PwnEm Con on November 17, 2012!

Gamers of all ages and abilities can pit their skills against each other with a full gamut of games, from board games and retro classics, through to the latest console releases, at PwnEm Con 2012 this November in northern New Jersey.

The social video game gathering will feature video games for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, with Kinect and PlayStation Move motion gaming accessories also available. Gamers will also have a chance to experience new release games such as Halo 4 for the Xbox 360.

Those with a more nostalgic approach to gaming can also try their hand at retro video games including classics from the 80s and 90s, as well as easy to play board games to take a break from all the electronic gaming madness.

PwnEm Con event organizer and PwnEm.com founder, Angel Hernandez, said the social gaming event aimed to offer something for everyone who enjoyed a “good game.”

“It’s a great opportunity for people to see how games have developed and advanced from low-tech board games through to the technologically complex games we see today.”

“Games are advancing even further as we speak, so it’s a very exciting time to be part of the gaming industry,” he said.

Two ticket types are available for the day, including a Gamer ticket ($15 per person) and the limited supply Elite Gamer ($30 per person), which includes additional benefits for ticketholders. Tickets can only be purchased online at the moment.

Families are invited to attend PwnEm Con but children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult ticketholder. Teenagers who are 13 years of age or older may attend unaccompanied.

PwnEm Con will be held in Northern New Jersey at Schuetzen Park (Lorelei Room), 3167 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, North Bergen, NJ 07047 on Saturday November 17 from 2:00-6:30PM. Free parking is available on premise. Schuetzen Park is easily accessible by public transportation and from NYC.
