8CN: Well, after a whirlwind of a day, rife with rumors and speculation, it has been officially announced that Amazon has purchased Twitch.TV for a whopping $970 million. There's obviously a lot of speculation going around still about just what this means for Amazon, for Twitch, and for the gaming community as a whole. Let's break down the facts and make some guesses, shall we?

The story is too old to be commented.

Here come the Kin YouTube esq adverts....great.

I mean does anyone actually really go out and buy stuff on the strength of all these brainwashing adverts?

Not me.

I rarely buy anything from an ad so if they're going to force them on me I hope I can vote it down so they might eventually give me a useful ad. Repeating the same crap over and over at me like a child or politician is just annoying.

The good, hopefully people can easily order sexy cosplay outfits from amazon for the attractive women of twitch. Another bonus of that is you'll get to see strange creatures in twitch chat that complain about the women showing too much, and the funny comments people make back to them. I watch others play games of course but when I can I like to watch both. I laugh every time someone says "your cam is too big I can't see the game." I think that's a warning sign for some kind of illness like addiction if they're not joking.
