Here at Joystiq, we've already talked about
G4TV's attempts to catch gamers'
and MTV's tentative forays into games television
. GamerGod have gone one
further and put the two head-to-head, with the resulting conclusion leaving MTV as the winner. Music television beating
out a games channel? It seems so.
One of MTV's strong points, identified by GamerGod, is the small amount of
scheduled programming dedicated to games as opposed to a full-time 24/7 gaming channel. While it's true that gamers
usually prefer to game rather than watch TV, it seems that this signifies the death of dedicated gaming channels as a
concept, something that channels like G4TV would rather not hear.
