Geoff Keighley Announces Global Partnership with Youtube for Live Coverage of E3 2015

Earlier this year Geoff Keighley removed Gametrailers from his Twitter bio, which sparked those to speculate where he would be heading ahead of this years E3 and beyond. Well look no further as it seems he’s announced a global partnership with Youtube to bring you live streaming of E3 2015 from Los Angeles and beyond.

The story is too old to be commented.

At least I won't have to use that crappy Twitch stream, dunno aboot anyone else but when-ever I use Twitch the stream will buffer quite often

Twitch has been having HUGE problems lately with streaming. So many people consistently get buffering issues.

Will be good to see if Youtube can get their live streaming in action we need competition!

Not just lately. I've never had good luck with twitch on large event streams like this.

Youtube isn't perfect, but they're often more reliable and have better quality.

IGN app last year was ok. It'd work fine for a while and have a small hiccup every now and then.

PSN Live viewer app on PS4 was a failure since the show started late and ran long so the stream expired.

Youtube is definitely the best platform he could've used, Google's server capacities are seemingly infinite. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, we need proper coverage for these events.

On a side note, it's hillarious how every article about Keighley is still using his Dorito Pope cover. I'm starting to like this guy though, he's doing good since he left Gametrailers.

yeah the same happens to me too

Wow. The kid has done well for himself. Geoff Keighley had a cushy video games presenting job but he did not complacently sit back like so many other personalities. He's used his contacts and ambition to launch The Game Awards and now this E3 live streaming partnership with YouTube. Whilst his Dorito Pope picture will not be forgotten he's actually done so much to legitimise and mature the video game reporting industry. Good for him. Good for us.

While it is funny to poke at him every now and again, Geoff is making positive moves for the industry. Good job, I say.

I agree. The conferences are always buffering, even if you stream them from the consoles themselves, or you get disconnected constantly. Twitch just doesn't seem to have the ability to handle that many concurrent streamers. i think in 2013(first E3 after the reveal) Sony's conference peaked at 6 million concurrent users. YT quality can be iffy at times, but at least you're rarely getting buffering issues unless it's on your end.

I hope he doesn't do a voice-over so I can tap into the feed and present it as my own and do my own commentary on it muhahaha

nX1238d ago

Why would you stream how you're commenting this kind of stuff...? Am I too old to understand that trend or are there really people out there who would like to hear your commentary?

rainslacker1238d ago

Some of the best E3 videos of 2013 were the abridged versions.:)

Something to keep in mind if you have a clever mind.

SkippyPaccino1238d ago

I wonder how much he's worth... He's like a cat, he always lands on his feet. I'll for sure check him out (not sure if I'll do it live, but I'll check out his feed afterwards)

Good guy Geoff Keighley.
