Amazon wants to dominate a lot of different industries, from e-commerce to cloud services, and the company is now getting serious about video games.
The company recently paid nearly $1 billion to buy Twitch, a streaming service by which fans watch others play video games. Twitch boasts a community of more than 55 million unique users each month.
"it's a fantastic place to go and talk," Mike Frazzini, vice president of Amazon Games, told CNBC at the GamesBeat conference in San Francisco.
"It's about socializing around games," he said. "Over time, we'll be looking for ways that we can work with them to help them move faster in what they want to accomplish."
