Google to rival Twitch with YouTube Gaming Google has announced a new section for YouTube called YouTube Gaming. YouTube Gaming is – as the name suggests – designed for gaming content in mind.
YouTube Gaming aims to be the social platform for gamers and game streamers much like Twitch.tv already is. YouTube says it offers over 25 000 individual games' pages that feature videos and/or streams.

The news didn't come totally out of blue since Google has been rumored to have a game streaming focused YouTube section in the works. It was also reported to be interested in buying Twitch but Amazon was the one to close the deal last year.

According to the website YouTube Gaming will debut in the US and UK this summer.
