We should talk more about this, all of us... I work multiple jobs in gaming and entertainment in general so I burn out once or twice a year and I need months to recover. Screw that.

@alex if i had to guess, they just finished two back-to-back AAA games in the same franchise and some people are seeing it as a good time to transition without burning bridges? aka business as usual?

YouTube Gaming Launches Today
26 August, 2015

Google launched has finally launched YouTube Gaming, a dedicated Android and iOS app, website, and streaming service focused exclusively on gaming content.

Although Twitch has been the go-to site for the broadcasting of games for a while now, YouTube has 1 billion users a month and has visitors who spend billions of hours a month watching videos that are specifically gaming related. Even with this, there is one definite thing that will set these two streaming sites apart. YouTube Gaming will include a “DVR Mode” that buffers the last 4 hours of a livestream which allows users to rewind.

Something else to keep in mind is that the majority of Twitch streamers use YouTube to archive their videos and use it to make extra revenue. YouTube is now the jack-of-all-trades and it definitely looks like it will give Twitch a challenge.


I wonder who will have the last laugh?
