one of the comments

""When cvg posted the same story a couple of days back they just said end of november. Just look for a dedicated night of games programmes on channel 4 around then, I suppose. I'd guess it'll be weekend. They usually do theme nights of a weekend.""

Oh. I hope they don't do that! I'm looking forward to it a bit less now.

That's not really Charlie Brooker's style - I'd expect them to be brought up of course but in a more reasonable context than say The Blurb.

Reading it again, it seems that the majority of the talk is going to be about GTAIV (and I would assume the series in general)

Oh its Brooker, it might be good then, at least it won't be full of Daily Mail headlines blaming everything bad in the world on games

There is going to be uproar on this site if it starts claiming Nintendo saved gaming after the videogame crash. :D
