X-Play TV Personality Adam Sessler part ways with G4


Kotaku has reported and confirmed that  TV personality and mainstay Adam Sessler, host of G4’s “X-Play” show is no longer with the company.

This news apparently first came out through Sessler’s representative. Here’s the quote:

Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam’s last episode as host of G4’s “X-Play” airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV’s “Gamespot TV” in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie “noobz” and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Apparently his departure is over some sort of contract dispute and was not  amicable.

Ironically it was a contract dispute between DIRECTV and G4 that denied me access to watch X-Play — the most consistent video game show out there.

Very unfortunate. I wonder who will replace him?
