RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

G4 Drops Gaming Content, Becomes Esquire Network In April

Posted on Monday, February 11 @ 10:50:39 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


This spring, the video game television channel once known as G4 will no longer exist. In its stead will be the Esquire Network, which will apparently cater to today's "modern man."

According to the New York Times, on April 22nd, G4 will be rebranded as the men's magazine Esquire, and will focus on more "manly" topics like politics, cooking, and cars. Esquire Network general manager Adam Stotsky has said that this new channel will center around “the modern man" and "what being a man today is all about.”

And apparently gaming doesn't come into the picture at all here. NBC exec Bonnie Hammer explained why, saying, “Realistically, guys who are into gaming are not necessarily watching television. If this was going to come under my portfolio, I’m a little brand crazy, so I said, let’s create a real brand, define a space, understand who we are programming for.”

Umm... Is it just me or didn't that make little to no sense?
