YouTube fired a shot across Twitch's bow today with its new YouTube Gaming hub. This service is built around dedicated pages for over 25,000 games, and it'll aggregate videos and live streams related to each title. Fans will be able to subscribe to their favorite games' pages, and a recommendation engine will provide suggestions for other games to follow based on each user's preferences.
The new hub comes on the heels of some improvements to YouTube's live-streaming capabilities last month. Another round of tweaks for the live-streaming experience was announced today, as well. Live streams will no longer need to be scheduled in advance, and users will soon be able to use a single link to direct spectators to all of their streams.
The new hub isn't live yet, but YouTube promises that it'll be available sometime this summer. The company will also have a booth at E3 next week for those who want to take an early peek.
