YouTube Now Allows For 60fps Video Uploads


Gaming has advanced at such a rapid rate. Remember back in 2010 when 1080p was all the rave? Oh wait, consoles are just now catching up to the age-old standard that now happens to be a standard on most retail PCs? Ah, well, in that case YouTube and eighth-gen consoles have finally caught up to 2010, because you can now upload video footage running at 60 frames per second from consoles barely pushing 1080p.

YouTube actually has been at the forefront of video resolution for quite some time, enabling users to watch videos at 2K and even 4K resolutions (not that there’s a lot of people out there who can afford the bandwidth to do so). Even still, JoyStiq caught wind of YouTube’s introduction to 60fps videos.

This definitely means that when it’s time to watch an upcoming game – like Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U – you’ll be able to see the game in all its righteous glory.

Giving gamers a taste of this new 60fps margin is Gaming Bolt, who got a hold of some 60fps footage of Battlefield: Hardline, which you can view below.

This is just the start of a beautiful and wondrous thing, where gamers from all over will be able to watch and envy those who can afford gaming machines that can play games the way they were meant to be played… or, you know, privileged enough to have their parents buy the console for them.
