Nvidia launches HD streaming games service “GeForce NOW” for Shield devices

[dropcap style=”style1″]N[/dropcap]vidia describes Geforce Now as “the Netflix for games,” though at launch the library leaves quite a bit to be desired, with just over 50 titles available for streaming.

Vietgame.asiaNvidia has announced a new entry in the streaming games market, GeForce NOW. It launches today. The company says GeForce NOW is the only cloud gaming initiative to offer “full high-definition 1080p quality and at 60 frames per second”.

For $8 per month you gain near-instant access to a library of 50 games including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the Batman: Arkham series and the LEGO games (sounds like Warner Bros. is on board in force, then). The first three months are free.

The service is restricted to Nvidia Shield devices – the Android TV, tablet and mobile phone shell with controller. Nvidia has six data centres servicing GeForce NOW across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Visit Nvidia’s Shield site to learn more.

GeForce NOW grows an increasingly crowded space for game streaming. Most recently Gamefly launched its own service, while Sony has PlayStation Now, which lets users stream PS3 games for $19.99 a month. Both services have slowly been expanding availability to new hardware; both PlayStation Now and Gamefly are available on Samsung smart TVs, for example.

As a PC components manufacturer, Nvidia makes a lot of money out of you upgrading your gaming hardware, so this may seem a little counter-intuitive. But if cloud gaming does take off it’ll bite a chunk out of the company’s bottom line, so it makes sense to get in the door now. And of course, you do need a Shield device to get in on the action.
