New video game expo headed for Las Vegas this summer
Can't decide whether to buy an Xbox One or Playstation 4 when they come out later this year?
Why not test both at an upcoming video game convention?
The GameStop Expo will hit Las Vegas for the first time this year, landing Aug. 28 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. It debuted last year in San Antonio and was created by the video game chain store of the same name.
"Based on the great response we saw at our inaugural event, we knew we were on to something," GameStop President Tony Bartel said. "We are also expanding our exhibition floor, giving our partners more space to share their great games and consumer electronics with our enthusiastic fan base."
Along with an opportunity to play next-generation systems — the Xbox One and Playstation 4 are slated for a holiday release — attendees will have a chance to hear from some of the video game industry's biggest developers, who are expected to preview upcoming games.
Tickets start at $35, and VIP packages start at $90. After Aug. 11, the prices will rise by $10.
Tickets can be purchased on GameStop's website.
