Comcast purchased Tech TV in May 2004 and merged it with its G4 network, necessitating a move for X-Play's base of operations from San Francisco to G4's Santa Monica studios.
The new set designed for the show resembled a lounge—or rumpus room - where the hosts could sit around while discussing their latest reviews (during the 400th episode, which originally aired on May 8, 2006, all chairs were removed from the set so that Adam and Morgan had to stand throughout the duration of each episode).
have stated that this new format represents "the type of show that they've always wanted X-Play to be", whereby a strict focus on game reviews was replaced with a broader range of topics relating to the video-game field (including more in-depth gaming news, first looks at game demos, and game cheat-codes/strategies with Kristin Adams twice a week).
The set was once again refurbished to coincide with the change, as the studio now has blue-tinged walls covered with several flat-screen monitors, and a giant orange X-Play logo (also newly redesigned for the relaunch) covering the floor.
New episodes would debut on weekend mornings at a.m. When Game Spot TV converted to Extended Play on February 17, 2001, the show moved entirely to the Metreon, and took on a very simple style and format. Like Game Spot TV, certain special episodes would be filmed elsewhere. After the departure of Botello, Sessler continued to host at the Metreon by himself, until the change to X-Play in April 2003.
Filming consisted of co-hosts Sessler and Botello and a small single camera crew; the show featured strictly game reviews and game hints, and the 10-point grading system changed to a 5-point system. In August 2002, the series became a daily program with a mix of repeats and first-run episodes airing Monday-Friday at p.m. When X-Play debuted on April 28, 2003 the show moved back to the Tech TV studios from the Metreon, and Morgan Webb came on board as co-host, leaving her previous hosting duties on Tech TV's The Screen Savers and Call for Help.
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.
On January 14, 2008, the G4 network commenced with a complete overhaul to the show's entire format, branding the move as X-Play "jumping to the next level".Each episode would start off with Game News, where Sessler or Fielder would give a brief overview of top news stories featured on the Game Spot website.Game reviews were run in a segment known as The Grill (games were graded on Game Spot's official 0.1-10.0 system), Spotlight showcased special content such as interviews with industry leaders, and Game Breakers featured strategy guides and hints for recently released games.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).
