Maybe you’ve dreamed of attending E3 Expo, but as a fan you know you can’t get in. Or it’s incredibly expensive to do so. Well GameStop is coming to the rescue by hosting their own first-ever Consumer Expo. The Expo will be held in Texas on August 29, 2012 and tickets are on sale now.

Attendees will get to try out the newest games before they are released, get a look at new gadgets, enter to win prizes and meet celebs. The Wii U Console and controller will be there for you to try out. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be there, with multiplayer! For the kids (and the adults that love it too), Skylanders Giants products will be there. Meet NBA world champion, Kenny Smith at the Majesco Booth. Meet developers from Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3, and Splinter Cell Blacklist at Ubisoft booth and play God of War Ascension, Wonderbook: Book of Spells, Sly Copper: Thieves in Time and other titles at the Sony Playstation Booth.
