No doubt in an effort to keep the Youtube gamers from leaving Youtube and heading over to Twitch, as well as increase the number of users, Youtube has launched its own live stream gaming service. Youtube Gaming which was announced at last E3 back in June, is now live and works on the web, Android and iOS. The nav is clean and easy to use. It has also incorporated some of the more popular Youtube channels like Machinima.You can bet the competition for content will heat up now.
As Time magazine points out, Google originally wanted to buy Twitch, but Amazon bought it for 970 million in August of last year.
Remember kids: your LP videos are valuable and there are now two platforms who will make tons of money off of your content. Keep that in mind.
At the moment, Youtube Gaming is only available in the US and UK.
