G4 kills Attack of the Show and X-Play

Written by David Stellmack

No word what the future might hold

With the breaking news that TV network G4 in the US has killed Attack of the Show and X-Play, gaming content on the network would seem to be coming to an end. With this decision, it has elevated GameTrailers TV on the Spike TV network as the new primary source of gaming news and information.

The news has also been confirmed by the network, which announced that original new shows would continue between now and the end of the year, with both shows looking back at some of the more memorable moments in a run up to the final shows. Sources also tell us that the staff for the “The Feed” is being let go by Thanksgiving time. While a few staff may be staying on for a couple of weeks past that to finish out the year, it would seem that show is also gone.

As for the network that began life as TechTV, and was later acquired by Comcast and rebranded G4, we don’t know what the future holds. A number of rumors are suggesting that the plan is to reinvent the channel with a new name and new content, but that has yet to be confirmed. We do suspect, however, that the channel’s tilt toward gaming is at an end.
