Remember when we told you about Twitch? The live video streaming service picking up major viewing figures for their video game content.

Reports suggest that YouTube are going to lay down a stonking $1 billion to buy the site which will win them a hefty new set of viewers.

Launched in 2011, Twitch has approximately 45 millions users with up to 1 million actively uploading and streaming content.

Twitch and YouTube have neither confirmed or denied the story but sources close to the two companies say that a deal is imminent.

This could be another major boost for the gaming industry in the online video sector as the popularity of its programming continues to rise.
