    I know the days of Ballmer are behind us, but i wonder how Microsoft is going to react to the news that one of their services on the Xbox is going to be provided by a company that Ballmer said such classic as...
    Or this unconfirmed rant...
    I'm going to miss Ballmer, he could always be relied upon to make a fool of himself :D

    YouTube is already available on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One as a native app, so I'm guessing they'll be pretty sanguine about the whole thing.

    IDK that. :thumb:
    Although i guess Twitch gets more use than YouTube on gaming consoles. You are right of course, that Microsoft probably couldn't care less, I get the feeling on the other hand that if Ballmer was still around he would be apoplectic.

    Will G+ accounts become compulsory to use Twitch in the future?

    PS Good job on identifying Google as an ad company :)
