After Google lost a deal to Amazon last year, Google plunges into the video game industry and will launch its own video game streaming site this Thursday.

Google was supposed to acquire Twitch.tv, one of the biggest video game streaming site, but due to antitrust complications the deal didn’t push through. The acquisition went to Amazon and the company was able to seal the deal for $970 million (P45.3 billion~).
