VIDEO: Philly LAN Party Features South Jersey Gamers
PHILADELPHIA - The GXL LAN (Local Area Network) party invaded Philadelphia by the hundreds, and they came to play. LAN parties involve gamers gathering to plug into the same local area network - to be able to play together. Gamers from South Jersey and the surrounding Delaware and Pennsylvania areas gathered together for the big event. The largest recorded LAN party was set in 2013 at an event called Dreamhack in Sweden. They had 17,403 connected systems. While the GXL party in Philadelphia didn't have those numbers, they're still one of the largest LAN party events in the United States.
