And not on good terms, sources say.

Gaming personality, opinion man, and industry icon Adam Sessler has left G4 TV.

Sessler’s representative today released the following statement:

Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam’s last episode as host of G4’s “X-Play” airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV’s “Gamespot TV” in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie “noobz” and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.

According to a Kotaku source, Sessler has left “due to a contractual dispute, and the departure was not on amicable terms.”

    That’s always a shame when it’s those contractual disputes. Though..chances are he wanted too much money. Cant say this bother sme at all..havnt watched the entire channel in years

  • FearMonkey

    Pretty dumb idea allowing Sessler to leave for such petty reasons. He’s pretty much the only reason G4 and X-Play has any integrity whatsoever.

  • captainhowdy

    That sucks. I used to watch this when it was called Extentded Play back in the day. He was the only good thing about G4.

    Good luck Adam.

    Dude…. I want him to sing at my wedding 0_0. lol. Actually Sessler was one of the redeeming parts of G4. Dude is actually very smart and quite versed in the industry, I have no doubt he’ll go on to bigger better things.

    Well he was what gave life to Xplay. G4 seems to be going downnhill and the only shows I used to see where X-Play and Ninja Warrior. Many of my friends used to see Atack of the show but it was just to see Olivia. I cannot longer see G4 channel anyway because I canceled my cable subscription for economical reasons. Who will replace him? Kevin? Adam reviews where fair. I wish that better oportunities arise for him.
