Nvidia announces “GeForce Now” cloud gaming coming to PC and Mac
NVIDIA enters the cloud gaming fray with GeForce Now.
Nvidia previously launched a video game streaming service exclusively for the Android-based Nvidia shield devices, described as “the Netflix for games.” During CES 2017, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveils ‘GeForce Now’ will be coming to PC and Mac. Huang describes it as “GeForce Now it turns any of your PC’s with the download of a little tiny client into a click of a button into essentially your most powerful gaming PC and its all in the cloud”
‘GeForce Now’ will be available for early access in March, $25 or roughly 1000 Php for 20 hours of gameplay excluding the cost for the games that you wish to play using the cloud service. The cloud service is aimed for people who doesn’t have access to a gaming PC, for the people who haven’t taken the effort to build a gaming PC and for those who want to just casually enjoy PC gaming from time to time.
Only time will tell if Nvidia can maintain itself in the online streaming service.
