Find out why this year’s GameStop Expo is the best place to try out next-gen hardware before anywhere else.
Whenever I visit a GameStop, I usually find myself moments after I step through the door regretting why I ever went there in the first place. Their stores are messy and you have to wait infuriating lines just to buy the one game you decided on hours ago.
Not my prefered way to spend a Saturday, honestly. Although, if I knew once going in that I would get a sure-fire chance at playing either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One months before they’re available at launch, then I’d might change my tune.
Which is exactly the reason why you should be interested in heading to Las Vegas, Nevada for GameStop Expo 2013, where attendees to the event will be able to sample the hottest upcoming games, and most importantly try out next-gen consoles first hand, i.e. the PS4 and Xbox One.
The one day expo will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center on August 28, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., where general admission is $35. Not a bad price to get in on some future vidjagaems, autograph sessions by guest stars of the event, and random prize drawings from several publishers at the event – Sega, Electronic Arts, and more.
If you want the ultimate GameStop Expo experience though (and who wouldn’t!), there’s also a $90 VIP ticket. Included in that package is early access to the show floor, a VIP lounge (filled with Mountain Dew and Doritos, I’ll bet), an invitation to a big name industry panel, and a sweet swag bag that comes with a copy of Madden 25 for the Xbox 360.
You’ll have to act fast on those VIP tickets, as there are only a limited number available. Not only that, but both ticket prices go up to $45 and $100, respectively, after August 11. So again, make plans now amigos. Don’t forget the sunscreen, too. The sun is a fiery bastard on the Las Vegas strip.
