Today YouTube finally confirmed reports of a YouTube Gaming service. Coming later this summer to the US and UK, this service is,

A brand new app and website designed to keep you connected to the games, players, and culture that matter to you, with videos, live streams, and the biggest community of gamers on the web—all in one place.

Gamers can expect this service to bring together gamers and games by providing more videos than the competition. More than 25,000 games will have their own page, which will offer video and live streams relating to that title from publishers and YouTuber creators.

Like the classic YouTube site, gamers can add a game to their collection for easy access, subscribe to a channel, receive recommendations and notifications when a stream goes live.

In the coming weeks, YouTube will launch an improved live experience that makes it simpler to broadcast gameplay to the site. On top of existing features like high frame rate streaming at 60fps, DVR, and automatically converting streams into a YouTube video, the site is redesigning their system to avoid scheduling a live event ahead of time. There will also be a single link to make sharing easier.

The service will be demonstrated at E3, until then check out the gallery for a closer look at what’s expected.
