It can't get much clearer: With exactly one week to go before the show kicks off at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, "badges for PAX East 2010 are officially, 100 percent sold out," according to a show representative.

Considering the convention center will likely be filled to capacity with "tens of thousands" of people, it's possible that just being around the show will feel like being inside. If you live in the Boston area, there's probably going to be plenty of stuff that's PAX related or co-opted going on, so even if you didn't pick up tickets -- and we totally warned you this was going to happen -- you may still be able to get your geek on.
