While it has a free tier, GFNow also has a better paid tier. So they are making money off it. I can only assume that the financial incentive for publishers just isn't there. Are there any similar services to this which suggest monetary incentives are not important?

If you still have to pay 60$ to play a game and you wanna add 5$ more to play how it suits you (or even to have a chance to play that 60$ game), why a developper would have a word to say to that ? He still gets all the money he would get without the extra paid service

Because the service only has any actual value because of the games. You may be paying a small fee to cloud stream those games, but you aren't going to pay anything when those games are gone right?

Because cloud streaming itself without actual content, which doesn't belong to Nvidia, is a straight up useless proposition, right?

It feels really weird that Nvidia has apparently not asked any publishers for permission. Don't they have a legal department?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

This is just sounding better and better everyday. I expect a full shutdown by end of this year and Google throwing in the towel also. The future is looking bright.

Yeah, like your TV's value is entirely related to what you can plug to it, but Networks or else aren't offended because of how you watch their shows.

Actually it's quite the opposite, the easier the access, the better for the tv networks.

That's why a majority of networks hide behind a cable or satellite paywall.  Make it easier for customer not to watch their network.  They then can bundle up their shit channels barely anyone watches and shove it down cable customers throats.

Remember people calling Google Stadia as the next big player in the field.

Disappeared just as fast as the Ouya 😂

Google just released the 2.0 Stadia hardware upgrade for developers. In a few months it will be online for players. And they are in preparation to open their 3rd 1st party studio.

I don't see Stadia shutting down any time soon when they already like have 4 studios working (Google has already opended 2 studios, bought Typhoon Studios and is opening a third).



Stadia is granted to survive for at least 10 years. Google is just investing too much on it with infrastructure and first party games development to just shut it down tomorrow.

Remeber that it will take at least 4 years to see a AAA exclusive on Stadia and Google is aware of that and they are fine with it.

But publishers don't need you to have GeForce Now to access their content. You have to buy the game before using GFNow to access it.

It would be a win-win for Sony if MS bought thousands upon thousands of PS5, put them in their azure infrastructure and charge a fee for players to log their PSN accounts, buy PS5 games digitally and stream them. But it would be a legal mess, the same is happening with GFNOW.
