Google Rumored to buy Twitch

16 replies 150 views Edited May 19, 2014

Google is rumored to try and buy Twitch.tv for $1 Billion. This is just a rumor at the moment and I am quite skeptical of it. It could be a smart move for Google giving them a greater control internet media. It would also give Twitch an advantage over its competitor MLG. 

 

Here is the link if anyone is interested: http://variety.com/2014/digital/news/youtube-to-acquire-videogame-streaming-service-twitch-for-1-bil...

So, let's recap:

 

  1. Facebook buys Oculus Rift
  2. FCC in the process of destroying Net Neutrality
  3. Google in the process of possibly buying Twitch

 

Is the Internet dead yet? I think I want it to die now.

Welp, if this happens then Twitch is probably gonna suck. I'm also guessing that Google will try to force Twitch users to make a Google+ account and link it to their Twitch account.
