Posted on December 6, 2007, Jonathan Video Game Awards on Spike TV Will be a Game Itself for Viewers
Good news if you subscribe to DirecTV or the Dish Network. When the Spike TV Video Game Awards air this Sunday night, you’ll be able to “play along.” Using your DirecTV or Dish remote, you’ll be able to unlock cheat codes for featured games, vote on live polls, watch exclusive content, and even play arcade games. Pressing “Select” will bring up an overlaying menu on top of the broadcast, giving you access to all the goodies. Periodically, you’ll be asked to input a code or play a certain game to unlock cheat codes for titles like Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, The Orange Box, and others. Of course you can just skip all that stuff if you want to, but it certainly sounds better than hearing acceptance speech after acceptance speech.
