Material in Google Gaming will be split into three catagories: Games, Feed and Channels with improved commenting and chat functions set to show up alongside the service.

According to a main blog site post by Google itself:

YouTube Gaming is built to be all about your preferred video games and players, with more videos than anywhere else. From “Planets” to “Zelda,” more than 25,000 games will each have their own page, a single location for all the best videos and live streams about that title. You’ll also find channels from a broad selection of game publishers and YouTube developers.


Right now little is found out about exactly what YouTube Gaming will look and work like when it does go live, and we just have a handful of screenshots to support, however with Twitch currently well established in the arena and developed into gaming consoles for both the streaming and consuming of content, Google’s YouTube Gaming might have a battle on its hands. All that said though, we’re keen to see exactly what Google’s suggestion engine can, and any competition for Skitch is an advantage as far as we are worried.
