Blog: VGAs renamed VGX and will have a new format this Saturday
VGX, the next generation of Video Game Awards, is an all-day gaming experience, and a true binging dream for gamers.
It looks like there's a whole new direction for the former VGAs this year. Introducing VGX
While its roots lie in the Video Game Awards, VGX will abandon the traditional Hollywood style award show to feature more world premiere game trailers than ever before, plus extended deep dives into the next generation of games, new looks at gaming culture, one-on-one interviews with the industry’s most visionary creatives and expert panels digging into what’s coming to consoles in 2014 and beyond. The new format features more games, less fame, in an intimate studio setting.
So that's different. I've always hated listening to acceptance speeches and awkward celebrity tie-ins and shitty bands during these shows. Just show me the new trailers and tell me who won the awards so I can get on with my life.
Anyway this new format show will air this Saturday, December 7 at 6PM ET / 3PM PT on the internet. That's right, no TV. I guess that's better if there are no commercials other than the game trailers... but will 6 cops re-runs out draw this for real? Here's how to tune in:
VGX will be streamed across Xbox One, Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 (PS3™), Twitch, iOS and Android devices, and available globally on VGXLIVE.com, Hulu, Yahoo Screen, the Yahoo Screen app and Viacom properties Spike.com, ComedyCentral.com MTV.com, MTV2.com, BET.com and GameTrailers.com. VGX will be live streamed for three-hours on Saturday, December 7, beginning at 6:00 PM ET / 3:00 PM PT.
