Here are most of Amazon's Black Friday videogame deals, all in one place

Without exaggeration, Black Friday's sincerely my favorite day of the year. That said, it might surprise you to find out that I rarely buy anything on the single busiest shopping day. I love it because I'm a people watcher. W...

Why are we excited about these New 3DS packaging shots?

An informal poll of the Destructoid staff reveals that we're all senselessly excited for this New 3DS. It doesn't make sense. None of us need one. We should be mad at Nintendo for having us wanting another iteration. But we'r...

Amazon's recent acquisition of Twitch.TV for more than $1 billion might come as a surprise to anyone that had been following various suitors' attempts to buy the streaming mogul. As of late, it had seemed as if Google was poi...

[Update: It's confirmed. Amazon has officially acquired streaming site Twitch.TV.

"Amazon will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Twitch for approximately $970 million in cash, as adjusted for the assumption of options and other items. Subject to customary closing conditions, the acquisition is expected to close in the second half of 2014."

Emmett Shear, CEO of Twitch, also released a statement on the acquisition.]

It was believed that Google was ready to acquire videogame streaming site Twitch for $1 billion but "those talks cooled in recent weeks," reports The Wall Street Journal. Now, it's Amazon who is reportedly stepping up to buy Twitch, according to the WSJ and The Information.

The deal isn't done until it's formally announced, as we saw with the earlier Google rumblings, but sources say an announcement could happen as soon as today.

There's been talk of which acquisition would be better for Twitch users. I'm still undecided.

Okay, this Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller looks rad

Catch that Call of Duty: Advance Warfare Xbox One bundle earlier today? It's a custom system that includes the game and a 1TB HDD for $499.99. The controller is also custom designed, and if you were like me wishing it was available separately well good news! It is. Amazon has it for $64.99.
