YouTube Gaming Launches
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.
