CES 2017 has officially kicked off. Last night PC juggernaut Nvidia held their keynote address, and it was a snoozefest for the most part. One of the things that managed to keep my attention for a little bit was the announcement of their GeForce Now Cloud Gaming Service.
With GeForce Now Cloud Gaming you simply download their client and from their you’ll have access to your steam Steam, Uplay, Gog.com & Origin libraries. From there you’ll be able to game via your PC or Mac. They’re claiming that downloading a game will only take a minute on their servers & the streaming is buttery smooth.
So what’s the catch? There’s always a catch, right? You’d be correct this time! GeForce Now current price structure is a joke. Nvidia will let you game on their service at the rate of $25 for every 20hrs. I think a monthly rate like Netflix or Hulu would make this viable, but that makes too much sense. It looks like this service is dead on arrival. It’s a shame too because it looks like a solid service.
