Youtube/Google preparing to buy Twitch for more than a billion


#1

Yeah this was on front page on SRK but it’s too good not to talk about in GD.


#2

Time to abandon ship. Hope someone can bring over all the emoticons over to Ustream. Twitch will be filled with shitty youtube like policies and stream chat replaced with Google+


#3

Also, prepare to get crapped on by content ID.


#4

From what I heard its just a rumor that twitch refuses to even respond too. So maybe its happening or maybe twitch just told them to fuck off.


#5

Back to UFrag. :lol:


#6

RIP in Peace, Twitch Plays Pokemon…


#7

I don’t want to go back to UStream


#8

God Google+ ruined Youtube and the comments section. This proposition is something I hope Twitch won’t go through with.


#9

Youtube Comments section always sucked. Google just made it more annoying to use it.


#10

Don’t trust them.


#11

I’ve heard this too from some DOTA streamers, still waiting for some other statements to surface.


#12

YT comments always managed to turn into some christain/atheist flame war or some conspiracy theorists talking about bilderburg, 9/11 being an inside job fucking horse shit, Barrack Obama as the anti christ. Oh, and don’t forget shitty chain spam about scroll down and share or whatever the fuck


#13

I heard Google is renaming Google + to “Google Identity”. They think they can cover-up the same shit with a new coat of paint lol!


#14

I never understood why Google was so desperate to link my Youtube and Gmail together, only to prevent from watching YouTube vids unless I do so. I find it funny how they would tell you “link these accounts to increase security” and all I can think about, was me telling google “listen here; you and I know this is a bullshit”, but in the end had no choice.

Guess I’ll have twitch + YouTube + Gmail all in one package.


#15

do ya thing Google keep making those moves don’t let them hold you back

#16

ustream was better yeah i said it the twitch faces are fucking stupid


#17

As long as Google+ isn’t integrated, I’ll be content with the merge. If they do, I’ll go off to Hitbox…


#18

6 billion hours of video to 1 billion users.

…What?
