In the days of Game Spot TV, the show was filmed on a simple ZDTV studio set consisting of faux-brick walls, randomly positioned TV monitors, and functioning Gauntlet Legends and Rival Schools arcade game cabinets.
Morgan Webb (2003-2013) Blair Herter (2008–2013) Jessica Chobot (2011-2013) Kristin Adams (2008–2013) Adam Sessler (1998–2012) Kate Botello (1999-2002) Lauren Fielder (1998–1999) Joel Gourdin (2007) Alex Sim-Wise (2011) Tiffany Smith (2012-2013) X-Play (previously Game Spot TV and Extended Play) is a TV program about video games that ran between July 4, 1998, and January 23, 2013.
The show in its final incarnation was hosted by Morgan Webb and Blair Herter, with Kristin Adams (née Holt) and Jessica Chobot serving as special correspondents/co-hosts (Tiffany Smith, Alex Sim-Wise and Joel Gourdin have also served as correspondents during the show's run).
Adam Sessler was the original host of the program; he previously co-hosted with Lauren Fielder and Kate Botello.
X-Play began on the ZDTV network in 1998 as Game Spot TV, where Sessler co-hosted with Fielder for the show's first year, then co-hosted with Botello up through 2002 (the producers of ZDTV originally had plans to air a video-game program when the channel launched called Extended Play that would be hosted by Simon Rex; however, when an agreement was reached with the makers of the newly created Game Spot website, plans for the original show's format were scrapped in favor of a Game Spot-branded program, and Rex was dropped as host).
The show assumed the previously rejected Extended Play moniker in 2001 after ZDTV changed to Tech TV and the partnership with Ziff Davis' Game Spot ended.
Botello left in early 2002, and Sessler hosted the show by himself up until April 2003, when Webb joined the cast and the show was renamed X-Play.
Game Spot TV, Extended Play, and X-Play all originated in San Francisco, California.
Throughout the course of the show's history, it has gone through numerous changes, in more than just name.
