Amazon is in a battle of ecosystems with Apple, Google, and others, and Twitch — along with gaming as a whole — is one of the weapons that Bezos plans to use in the fight.
Well, of course it is... And it's a good way to help do that.
"The Great Ecosystem War."
It is a perfect acquisition by Amazon. Linking product to what people are streaming is a good way to promote business. They could even expand beyond gaming with twitch. I know, primarily it is a streaming platform but it is a video service of sorts.
It definitely makes sense.
Makes sense i guess from a business stnd point. But isn't it like the king of say... england, owning england... and then a revolt in... uh... bristol "bare with me..." by some wealthy noble and going on to then take over this large city. But still ultimately being smaller and likely the lesser of two evils. Well most random comment of the day, goes too.....
Makes sense and is quite the turn around of events. Was just what two weeks back that reports were circulating that Google had Twitch... I wonder how legit the reports about Google buying were? I mean at one point was Google in the top spot to buy and did Amazon come in last minute and out bid?
The reports about Google was legit, but i'm sure it was seen as a anti-competitive move, and Amazon was more appealing to them.
