Veteran Gaming Industry Personality to Join Forces with Discovery Communications’ Digital Video Network

(San Francisco, Ca.) Revision3 has announced that Adam Sessler has joined its network. Sessler, a 14-year TV host on G4, TechTV and ZDTV, and an expert video game and pop culture journalist, was the long-time host of ‘X-Play’, as well as editor-in-chief of G4’s game content, until earlier this year. Additionally, Sessler was a regular correspondent on ‘Attack of the Show’, and has also lent his expertise to such diverse outlets as CNN, KROQ, ‘The View’ and NPR. He is currently appearing as a judge on the SyFy's ‘Viral Video Showdown’.

Revision3’s gaming channel, Rev3 Games, launched earlier this year, and has quickly become known for its high quality content as well as its bold and fun style. The channel recently has seen record-breaking monthly views and subscriber growth from an extremely devoted viewership. With the addition of Sessler, the network is looking to double-down on its game content strategy by creating the most credible, highest-quality destination for those seeking the latest video game news, reviews, hands-on-demos and exclusive video game trailers.

Sessler is joining Revision3 as Executive Producer of Games Content and will be incorporated into existing daily and weekly content, working with Rev3 Games hosts Max Scoville, Tara Long and Anthony Carboni. Sessler will also leverage his loyal audience to create new, interactive programming that engages viewers and maximizes the constraint-free environment of online video.

"I cannot overstate how excited I am to be joining Revision 3,” said Sessler. “My desire to create innovative video content that addresses the game industry, in this period of rapid evolution, could not find a better outlet. Nowhere else could I indulge my need for unvarnished opinions on the game industry and appetite for irreverent fun. This may be a new beginning but I already feel right at home."

Known for his honest and outspoken views and credibility, Sessler relates well to the hard-core, passionate gaming community but also is adept at connecting with a broader audience and newcomers to the gaming world.

“I'm extremely excited to welcome Adam to Revision3,” said Ryan Vance, SVP, Programming and Production, Revision3. “I had the pleasure of working with Adam for many years, most notably on the creation of ‘X-Play’ and can speak first-hand about his extensive creativity, expertise and stellar reputation in the gaming industry. We look forward to adding Adam's creative vision to our existing gaming content and supercharging the Rev3 Games channel."
