Hulu's Video Games Hub Goes Live

Hulu's Video Games Hub Goes Live

Trailers, gameplay videos, and more are now available for Hulu users on the PC.

Hulu offers the ability to stream plenty of movies and TV shows, but starting today you can also view lots of trailers for newly released and upcoming games on its brand new video games hub. In addition to trailers, users can also browse a list of games releasing this month, watch game reviews from X-Play, and browse Hulu's available geek culture-related media.

"In case it's not clear, we love video games at Hulu. So for this busy video game season, we've got you covered," Hulu's Oscar Rohena wrote in a blog post announcing the hub. "In the video games hub on Hulu, you'll be able to find beautiful pages featuring HD trailers, gameplay videos, and reviews for the latest games. We'll also have essential release information, so you know exactly when you can get your hands on that game you're eyeing."

Clicking on any game on the main hub brings you to that title's standalone page, which has release, rating, developer, and publisher information and collects all of the trailers available for that game. You can also scroll through lists of popular and recommended games, though I have no idea what the recommendations are based on. The video games hub is only available on the PC right now, with Hulu planning to bring it to other Hulu Plus-enabled devices over the next few months.

Yay I guess? Doesn't seem that helpful though. I mean, there's already a million other sites that'll provide such information for games. Heck, Steam will do all of that and then let you buy the game.

Um shouldn't there be citations at the bottom of the story (at least referencing the blog post, and such) this feels like it wasn't properly cited.

OT: Hulu is attempting to absorb more time out of people. what would be really funny is if they don't have anything on PC games.

yes, but Steam only does that for PC games, and at least 3 of the titles displayed in the picture alone wont be on PC for at least a while if at all.

Fair enough, but there are plenty of sites that do the same sort of thing for other platforms.
