Twitch receives a $20 million investment from Take-Two Interactive and several other investors
Along with a number of other investors, Take-Two Interactive just dumped $20 million into Twitch. So the parent company of Rockstar took the lunch money from GTA V and shared it. They probably see potential in the live-streaming service, which been steadily growing to over 45 million unique impressions per month.
It will only be getting bigger when the next console generation will let you live-stream by just pushing a button. Now if only the Constant Bit Rate update wasn’t breaking half my streams, I could get back to watching all of my favorite g1s getting their ass beat by AVGN Adventures.
Also, Ben said the header needed some spice and nothing says spice like Miley.
I'm right there with you Sean, the CBR update has been a royal pain for my fellow g1 viewers on their PCs, ironically it works flawlessly when I get enough viewers for my channel to show up in the 360 app (that damn thing needs a search function!) or when they can pull it up on their mobile phones or tablets. Or as Werdman recently discovered, the WiiU.
I wonder if this will mean GTA Online will have a streaming service?
That's going to give me nightmares
That banner jesus christ.
