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.

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.

Yep, they also don't need you to have a pc to buy their game. For eg, I bought a PS Vita to a random guy and bought Uncharted Golden Abyss in the mean time. Never got the aforementioned Vita but got the game. Now I have Uncharted Golden Abyss but can't play it cause I don't have a Vita (and my PSTV isn't compatible).

But that's not the problem of Naughty Dog, Sony nor the guy who sold me the game. Nonetheless, it's a problem for me and if a third party would give me some way to play my game that I can't play, I would love it.

Which has nothing to do with GeforceNow, an optional service that is not required to play the games you buy. 

A PC is.

Your analogies so far this thread have been horrendous.

It's not entirely my fault if you don't understand my analogies. 

GeForce Now is basically the PC (that you mentioned) you need to play the game you buy. So not optional in some cases.

You buy an HP Spectre or a MacBook Pro (with Windows on it) or GeForce Now, same result: you buy a game on steam and play it on one of those 3 platforms.

But in 2 cases, no issue, and for the third one, there is an issue.

No one ask HP to have special agreements with game developers, neither do they with Apple. But they do with NVidia.

I didn't say i didn't understand your analogies, just that they are obviously very poorly thought out.

There's a difference.

PC is hardware you need to play your games. So you can't play your games without it.

GFN is software you don't need in order to play your games, and itself also needs your PC, or applicable device. You can't even use GFN without said hardware.

PC has a variety of different uses not related to gaming. It's ubiquitous. PCs don't need games in order to be sold and used.

GFN has the function of cloud streaming your games and pretty much nothing else. It needs games in order to have functionality.

So yes. Your analogies aren't great. There aren't enough similarities to be the same. And the very specific detail you do focus on isn't even equatable.

I did, cause you clearly don't understand it. Thus no need to further discussions.

Well this is fantastic news. Stadia is on the decline and GFNow losing support. Xcloud just biding it’s time with quality control and is likely to be a easy front runner in this emerging space. I’m not even concerned with whatever Amazon has, they simply don’t have the 15 devs MS has and connected infrastructure. None of them do.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

How is that good news?.

I'm like generally stumped as to why you want less people in the cloud space, yet at the same time you want MS at the forefront...


What Nvidia was doing was a simple "you own the game on any client?, cool, you can play it via our service", without having to buy the game a second time (which is what Stadia wants you to do).

Stadia app reached 1 million downloads globally, a 400% increase since the the free tier + free pro trial was introduced.

Xcloud would be the same across console and Pc with save data being interchangeable with only 1 version being purchased. But it’s very simple. I want Xcloud to succeed, at the expense of their competition. 

Because I have a Xbox controller and plenty games I would love to play in my bedroom or wherever (with my saves carrying over and everything). Everything else is just noise that doesn’t deserve success due to lack of infrastructure.

That’s...pretty low. Thought it would be much higher since the initial release. Thanks for the information :)
