VENICE, CA February 23, 2011—Those interested in checking out one of the hottest gaming accessories of the year and maybe even play a few co-op rounds with one of the world's greatest gamers are advised to direct themselves to PAX booth 150, Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, March 11-13.

Booth 150 is the spot where the creators of XtendPlay ( http://www.xwerxonline.com), the critically acclaimed controller enhancement for original-equipment Xbox 360 and PlayStation  controllers, will be joined at the second-annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) by Stallion83 (a.k.a. Raymond Cox), the gamer with the highest Gamerscore in the world on Xbox LIVE.

"This is going to be an awesome experience," said Cox. "Not only is it my first PAX, but it's the first time I'll be able to show the world that XtendPlay is everything I've been saying it is. Being online, reading blogs and reviews and watching videos is one thing, but there’s no substitute for experiencing XtendPlay first-hand."

"We are thrilled that Raymond is able to join us," commented Dave Sparling, Xwerx CEO & Co-Founder. "His support from the beginning has been invaluable to the success of the product thus far. We know that with his presence, PAX will be a great public introduction for thousands of gamers to what XtendPlay can do for them."

"This is an important benchmark for us," added Mark Sparling, Xwerx COO. "Only two years old, PAX has already become an influential and important gathering of savvy and passionate gamers. If we can win over them, there's no limit to where we can take XtendPlay."

Critical Darling:

In the less than two months that XtendPlay has been on the market, it has been a hot topic of discussion on Kotaku, ESPN, Joystiq, Engadget, and Gizmodo. Among the most favorable reviews:

"No denying its benefits." (ESPN)

“Works for extended gaming sessions.” (Kotaku)

“Brilliant!”  (Xboxer360)

"...a fantastic product." (BeantownGamer)

"...a standout ergonomic controller accessory that turns those unforgiving plastic molded controllers into Swedish foam wrapped clouds." (Gologtron)

"Definitely recommend it...your hands will thank you." (AllGames.com)

The secret of XtendPlay is its patent-pending design, which was refined over thousands of hours of testing.  The result is an innovative product that improves the ergonomics of game play, boosting comfort while allowing the gamer to remain at the top of their game.

·         Soft-touch fleXlite™ shape keeps fingers and hands relaxed
