YouTube to Launch App, Site Dedicated to Gaming

YouTube is seeking to win over gamers. The online video giant announced plans ahead of next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo to launch a separate app and site specifically for fans of video games. At one of the site's production facilities, YouTube Space LA, global head of gaming content, Ryan Wyatt, unveiled YouTube Gaming. He said YouTube Gaming will be a destination for users to find gaming videos, live streams and Internet personalities. The app and site, which is scheduled to debut in the U.S. and U.K. later this summer, will feature individual pages dedicated to more than 25,000 games.
