"With respect to entertainment, videogames have emerged as the leading influencer among today's generation of young men�and E3 feeds their obsession" said Neal Tiles, President, G4. "With an unprecedented 17 hours of coverage from this year's E3, we are delivering on the network's promise to be the only TV destination that fuels today's plugged-in generation's addiction for the latest in must-have videogames, tech, gadgets and viral web culture."

The network's Adam Sessler, Morgan Webb, Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn will be on hand to serve up all of the breaking news and major announcements.

There's really no other TV destination that comes close to G4's unparalleled live hands-on demo line up � nearly 40 in all � including Fallout 3, Killzone 2, Gears of War 2, Ghostbusters: The Videogame, and Halo Wars. "Unlike a trailer or canned gameplay footage, a demo places you right there with the game, giving gamers what they really want-- the most immediate sense of what you'll be playing soon," said Adam Sessler, X-Play Host and G4's Editorial Director. "It's a testament to the quality of the games this year that, if you care about it, you'll be seeing it played on our stage."
