The Spike TV‘s VGX Award Show 2013 will be aired this evening live at 3:00pm Pacific Time.
This year, the VGX Award Show will not be broadcast on Spike TV, but will be live-streamed on various Viacom-owned websites and through Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Twitch, Hulu, Yahoo, and Steam. You can also watch the livestream right here.
You can watch the livestream via the following Viacom sites:
Executive Producer and co-host Geoff Keighley told Polygon,
“Gamers have told us they want more content, more news, more developers on stage, more awards. This year I think there is the opportunity with all of these streaming digital platforms to make a show for the core gamer. In the past, it’s always been this sort of forced marriage between what gamers want and what’s going to work as a big event, two-hour television show.”
“We used to try and force these things together. This year we are trying to say we have the show for the core audience, which is the streaming show on Saturday, and then for the more mainstream viewers there is an hour television show you can watch on Spike on Monday which is going to give you the highlights.”
“You may not want to see a ten minute demo from [Double Fine’s Tim] Schafer on the livestream, but you might be interested in getting his news and seeing a minute of it on Monday.”
Will you be watching the 3-hour show?
