Newsbrief: A number of reports appeared over the weekend, suggesting that Google is in talks in buy video game streaming giant Twitch, although it isn't clear at what stage these talks are at. Sources talking to Variety, The Verge and the Wall Street Journal all say that talks are currently underway, and it's suggested that Twitch has chosen to go ahead with Google over other big companies, including Microsoft. However, while Variety and The Verge report that the talks are in the final stages, and that the deal may be worth $1 billion, WSJ's report suggests this is not yet the case, reporting instead that "the talks are at an early stage, and a deal isn't imminent." Both Google and Twitch declined to comment on any of the reports.
