The bad news is that it gives commenters even more ammunition when watching trailers or gameplay clips. Even more reason to pretend that YouTube doesn’t have a comment section then.
To take advantage of this new service, you will need to use Google Chrome to watch YouTube videos and you need to select a HD option. But once you do, the result is quite spectacular. We look forward to seeing videos that showcase games in all their beautiful splendor.
