GameTrailers.com Launches "GT Weekly"; New Internet TV Show Focused On Videogames

Interactive Online TV Program Allows Gamers to Tailor Show Content in Real Time

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Los Angeles, CA - August 23, 2005 - GameTrailers.com, the leading online source for videogame multimedia content, is pleased to announce its new original show, "GT Weekly." Unlike any other news show on the internet, "GT Weekly" allows viewers to choose the segments they want to watch based on their preferences.

"Every videogame fan is different, and each one has very specific and intense loyalties, but more importantly they have no patience to watch coverage of games they don't care about. The interactive format of the show lets viewers choose the topics they want to see, and skip past the stories they are not interested in. This is one of many advantages internet programming has over traditional TV," said Jon Slusser, CEO of GameTrailers.com. "A massive number of people now have broadband access and this opens up endless possibilities for high quality content. GT Weekly is bringing audiences 'TV on the internet' with a new level of technology and production value."

Designed specifically for interactivity, GT Weekly offers viewers up-to-date news and stories about the game industry accompanied by the latest trailers, behind the scenes footage, interviews and event coverage. Hosted by Amanda MacKay, each 5-10 minute show highlights the best of GTTV's programming, with on-screen links for fans to jump to more extensive coverage.

GT Weekly can be seen at GT.tv and GameTrailers.com with new episodes premiering every Thursday. The latest episode covers QuakeCon and the Evolution Fighting Game Championships 2005. Upcoming GT Weekly shows will include coverage of the Tokyo Game Show and much more.
