ESPN Video Games Channel Launches On ESPN.COM


ESPN today launched the ESPN Video Games Channel presented by GameTap, a section of the Internet’s top sports site, ESPN.com. Developed in collaboration with Ziff Davis Game Group, the co-branded section delivers sports video game-focused content including sports video game news and reviews, trailers, audio and video podcasts, industry analysis, interviews and more. Additionally, coming soon, the section will feature the “GameTap Video Game Vault” – a section that gives fans in-depth information and histories about hundreds of the most popular video games from a number of game platforms.

Content for the section is provided by both Ziff Davis Game Group and ESPN.com, and will include material from 1UP Network sites 1UP.com, GameVideos.com, and FileFront.com and magazines Electronic Gaming Monthly, Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine and Games for Windows: The Official Magazine, as well as from ESPN writers and contributors.
