According to two separate reports—from Variety and the Wall Street Journal—Google is thinking of purchasing the video game streaming startup Twitch. That would get Google one of the web's most highly trafficked sites.
The two reports do, however, differ. Variety claims that the deal is virtually sealed, and will see Twitch being purchase for $1 billion. On the other, hand, the Wall Street Journal is rather more conservative--explaining that the discussions are "early" and that "a deal isn't imminent."
