When you go to any PDX event, you'll see vendor booths which included Patriot Memory, Antec, DangerDen, Intel, and usually one game sponsor who offers a free licensed copy of a decent game title. Last event, everyone received Front Lines: Fuel of War. This time, we all got a copy of Call of Duty: World at War. (SWEET!) As usual, there were many, many elite and customized systems for browsing pleasure. Sure, some are proprietary. But, with a little creativity, they look much better. The customized case contest awarded $1500 to its creator. Only, actual customized cases/systems were entered in to the event.
