YouTube Gam­ing Launches

Starburst Magazine - - Pixel Juice -

When­ever any­body has a half­way de­cent idea these days, you can usu­ally bet that Google will not be far be­hind, as­sum­ing they aren’t the ones who came up with it of course.

With the mas­sive suc­cess of Twitch, cou­pled with its re­cent pur­chase by Ama­zon, it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore the com­pany got into the stream­ing games busi­ness.

In fair­ness, the launch of YouTube Gam­ing isn’t all that shock­ing a move by the com­pany. Af­ter all, they were in­volved in a tough bid­ding war with Ama­zon for Twitch in the first place, so they ob­vi­ously had in­ter­est be­fore­hand. It will be very in­ter­est­ing to see where this leads over the next few years.
