Game Head out, GameTrailers TV in

Just when you were getting used to the awkward name, our good buddies at MTV Networks (hey Ed Lover!) have decided to close up Game Head HQ after 2-1/2 years and roll that show's talent into another video gaming super show: may we introduce GameTrailers TV, premiering next month on Spike TV.

So, Keighley stays on board, but now his powers are augmented by those of GameTrailers' Daniel Kayser and Amanda MacKay. After purchasing Game Trailers two years ago, MTV has been steadily integrating the property across their burgeoning video game empire. One need look no further than last night's airing of the Spike Video Game Awards, which was littered with video game trailer premieres (amongst other things carefully selected to trigger base responses in the 18-34 year old male demographic).

So, we'll still have the news and interviews from Game Head, but coupled with the features and trailers from GameTrailers. Apparently, like the VGAs, trailers will premiere on the show before popping up on along with the full episodes. Full episodes will later make their way to the Xbox Live Marketplace in glorious HD if you're into that sorta thing.
