YouTube Introduces Fan Funding, Gets Serious About 60FPS Games
YouTube has chosen tonight to announce two giant bombshells. The first is that the site will be soon supporting 60 FPS and the second, that it will be supporting a business model that might affect plenty of video game content creators in the near future:
60 FPS: Motion-intense videos will look even better on @YouTube when we launch support for 48 and even 60 frames per second, coming soon.

The first piece of news is great for gameplay videos featuring games that run at high frame rates. The second, however, may hint at some troubles down the line (although nothing official has been revealed yet), since it’s a new feature that will allow YouTubers to garner financial support from viewers themselves through the Fan Funding system, which is connected to funding sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and more. You can read up on this and more changes/additional features on the official YouTube page here.
Meanwhile, you can also check out a clip of Titanfall running at 60FPS below, courtesy of GhostRobo.
