This year the Spike Video Game Awards has been re-branded, according to Spike host Geoff Keighley.
The awards will air on the same date as last year, December 7, but this time round they will go under the name of VGX. No reason was given for the name change, but the “expanded digital footprint” may have something to do with it.
VGAS coming on 12/7/13 with a new name, VGX, and an expanded digital footprint plus TV coverage on Spike. More details soon….
