Activision's FPS sequel will be breaking new ground when Call of Duty: Black Ops II allows players to broadcast live in-game multiplayer streaming to YouTube from the Xbox 360 and PS3.

As previously mentioned, the new functionality is a first for modern consoles, allowing them to transmit gameplay in real-time. The streams will be viewable on web browsers and mobile devices through the Call of Duty Elite service as well as individual YouTube accounts. Integration with the Elite service will let registered members view stats, loadouts and match data of the player broadcasting the match. The YouTube livestreaming will be available right on Black Ops II's 11/13/12 release date.
