Will be interesting to see if it is actually allowed to complete the deal.
Probably bad news. I hate all that Google+ crap.
Wow that's actually big .
Thanks TS .
Expect sony and Ms to go through new T&C's once current contracts expire.
I don't see why regulators would stop such a deal? I don't see any significant interest to enter this space by anyone else right now. Youtube seems like a natural fit for Twitch given the ever expanding need of computing power both seem to need. I am surprised that Google OK'd this deal but Twitch has already had good relationships with Sony and Microsoft it seems? A few months ago Google was complaining that Youtube was a drag on their profits but that it was very key to their business. Gaming could enter 3D streaming virtual space with products like the Oculus and could really be a boost for twitch and Facebook.
If i was an owner of Twitch, i'd be crying tears of joy right now
I would also put down payment on a Lamborghini Aventador and a huge ass 3 story mansion
Great, youtube updates are fucking garbage
All of these massive corporations consolidating technology isn't good.
Twitch and youtube are pretty shitty versions of the services they offer, just large.
I'll be surprised if it makes that money back
BAD bad news. Just a rumor right now but if it's true I'll be sad.
Twitch is like the 4th most popular website on the internet, it will easily make the money back.
Wow...From Justin.tv to that.
Quite the turn around (money wise) for Twitch owners. Good for them.
In the US.
This is why we can't have nice things
You know the owner(s) already have a lot of money right.
Down payment on an Aventador? You peasant.
Lol down payment. He'd pay that shit in cash.
What the fuck is Twitch? Never heard of it.
either way it's still an incredibly popular and profitable website.
