Previously, only the PS4 was confirmed for the show because at the time, the Xbox One had not been officially announced.

GameStop did not specify which titles will be playable during the event, saying only that attendees can "get a close-up look and hands-on experience with the new systems and their exciting launch lineups."

In addition, GameStop announced that Microsoft and Sony will hold Q&A sessions regarding the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, respectively. As outlined previously, only VIP ticket holders can attend the Q&A sessions.

GameStop said only a "very limited" number of VIP tickets remain. Priced at $90, the premium tickets include early access to the show floor, a VIP lounge, a gaming tournament, access to panel discussions, and a swag bag that includes a t-shirt and Madden NFL 25 for Xbox 360.

General admission tickets are currently available for $35 online and in-store. VIP tickets are sold only through GameStop's website.

GameStop also announced today that specially priced student tickets will be available for $20. These tickets can be purchased onsite only.

The 2013 GameStop Expo takes place August 28 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
