Youtube Gaming vs Twitch
If haven't heard by now, Youtube is taking gaming on Youtube to a whole nother level! Actually by not having it directly inside of the general Youtube. They are making a separate website and apps dedicated to gaming.
Streamers will stream their live gameplays on Youtube and a lot will be automated for them.
So they are essentially making it easier for viewers to watch gaming on Youtube while making Youtube easier to stream on for streamers.Who will win?
I think both of them will co-exist for a quite a while, mostly because people don't just jump from one system to another just like that. But more importantly people like choices and have different needs. This will probably something similar to what we know with Xbox and PlayStation. None of them are really the main console because consumers have different needs.
Youtube Gaming will be one thing today but it will change over time and adapt to whatever they become. But it does looks really good and offers some nice features.
So what will Twitch's answer be? (other than #kappa
Twitch either needs up their game on features, exclusive content or use the loyalty of their streamers and viewers in a way that will make them stay at Twitch.
That's what I'm guessing on, but what do you think??
