With YouTube Gaming coming sometime later this summer, companies like Amazon and Twitch are getting ready to face more competition. Another competitor is going to be Hitbox, a startup that has been around for a while, but you may not have heard of.
Hitbox is planning to enable live streaming games using 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. That is more than what YouTube or any other service is planning to do for now. With this kind of super HD resolution at 60 frames second, our games will become even better. It is a good time to be a gamer. Can you imagine it?
Visuals these days are pretty amazing with high-end graphics and processing. With those visual requirements in mind, Hitbox’s plan could be a good move for the company and might also earn it support from games developers. Keep in mind that although Hitbox is offering 4K support, it does involve bandwidth limitations, which for now is 3,600 Kbps and 4K can easily hog up to 9,000 Kbps. We will see if and when they raise that limit.
We certainly dig the idea since 4K televisions are all the rage. Gamers like their resilution as high as it can go. If live streaming games become a lasting trend, we could see Hitbox doing very well thanks to its fast approach to 4K streaming.
