Details after the jump]. Also introduced today is a new “YouTube Top Trending Games” chart detailing “what’s going to be big tomorrow”.

Content on YouTube Gaming can be viewed by Games, Feeds, and Channels. Says YouTube, “Good shelf organization and naming will create a killer channel in the YouTube Gaming App.” More tidbits of details are dropping at this moment.

This is the maker’s new “user experience”, which is said to put “games front and center, including live gaming.”

As for the Top Trending Games chart, it uses data to pick out what the company thinks you should be playing, not what is just popular at the moment. It has already detailed the top games for May, and says it will be revealing the top trending games for June on its Trends blog later this month.
