Google to Acquire Twitch

With Youtube missing out on the livestreaming chunk of the online video pie, Google is said to be nearing a deal to acquire the premiere online game livestreaming source: Twitch. With the deal, Twitch would likely be merged into Youtube.

The Wallstreet Journal is now reporting that the story is true and acquisition talks are very far along.

Youtube, Google, and Twitch have declined to comment on the story thus far.
