    http://www.twitch.tv/twitchAnyone know what this is about?

    Could it be that @alexisg has fixed all of their problems and is now being crowned Twitch emperor for life?

    -

    EDIT:

    Turns out they totally lied about it being the "Biggest. Announcement. Ever." The reveal was that there will be a TwitchCon on September 25-26 in San Francisco.

    On the bright side:

    The way they are saying biggest announcement ever would imply it's bigger than being bought by Amazon. Unless they just like to be hyperbolic in which case I apologise for making this thread.

    "Now instead of just muting a half hour of audio, we delete your account if you play music in the background. Also, excited to announce a partnership with (some advertising thing)!"

    Whatever it is, I'm going to bet it winds up not being the biggest announcement ever.

    Twitch will be announcing a TV channel, available with your cable provider where they wil showcase the best of twitch 24 hours a day 7 days a week for only $10 dollars a month. Or they're announcing the rebranding of Twitch as Amazon TV.

    edit: Poker. They are getting deep into poker. Fucking finally!

    Damn, that is a good find. I hope the announcement is something completely unrelated.

    haha yep - it must be something different. The announcement would be so hilariously tone deaf otherwise. Clearly most of us do not care when iota about Poker, as much of a trendy TV thing as it may be.

    Intereting quote at the bottom of that article though "bridging the gap between Poker and e-Sports" makes me think.

    Maybe if Poker is heavily associated with Twitch and e-sports, it will in turn open the door for more e-Sports on actual TV, in the same way Poker is on ESPN2, etc.

    But then they found out Kim K: Hollywood is also a candidate. Conflicts of interest arise. Catty, passive aggressive tweets and Instagram photos about the quality of the other celebrity's respective game are being posted between the verified Kim Kardishian and Beyonce accounts. Battle lines are drawn. Kanye is distraught. Drama ensues.

    My guess is its a new show, almost like a TV show. Think Amazon or Netflix (Orange is the New Black, Transparent).

    The market for conventions has grown.

    EDIT:

    Has the NBA trade deadline ended yet?

    I need more NBA trades in my life.

    You know I wouldn't be surprised if the agreed to contracts with some video game studios to produce content on twitch. Whether that be short documentaries, interviews, or the usually playthroughs of new games. Would probably make sense and I'm sure people would probably pay a premium price if that meant weekly video content of some hyped game like fallout 4 before it came out.

    I don't know how to feel about this. On the one hand, I feel like more conventions gives more fans the chance to get out and have some fun and whatnot which is always awesome. But on the other hand, I feel like we're reaching the point, if we aren't there already, where if you're just going to see the games, I feel like you're going to end up disappointed because developers are going to have to keep picking and choosing which one to show up at.

    The sad part is they pretty much solely exist in the US. There's Gamescom in Germany, TGS in Japan and then nothing but USA. If they had chosen to have this anywhere else it would be super cool.

    To be fair, if it wasn't hyped up (or worded) to be the biggest announcement they've made and just said that it was an announcement, I think there wouldn't be as many people disappointed by this.

    Twitch might have inherited the Molyneux gene. :P

    @hassun: ha people that view sites in fullscreen at that size of a monitor are monsters! But yeah I am sure some resolutions and sizes things wont be perfect. It was hard enough to get all that stuff animated and make it responsive as well without killing all browsers.

    FYI: I'll hopefully be back home on the couch today. And by home I mean UPF.
