Nvidia officially launches its own cloud gaming service GeForce Now

Nvidia's cloud gaming service GeForce Now is now live.

GeForce Now works a little differently than Stadia and doesn't ask gamers to buy games on a seperate platform but asks users to play their games from their existing PC libraries through Steam, Epic Store or Battle.net

They've introduced an introductory $5 founders edition account that lets users play for an unlmited amount of time, you can also try the service for free but you'll have to be in queue and you won't get the best experience. The service will be available to Windows, Mac and android devices.

They currently have several data centers globally that you can connect to. The idea being that you don't need a powerful PC to run games at the best possible quality, just like Stadia, Nvidia offers a higher selling point considering they make the gaming hardware and with Google Stadia's initial launch being lacklustre, there are a lot of reasons to see why Nvidia's going all in.

Cloud gaming can now be Nvidia's crown for the taking allowing users to take their PC gaming experience to other devices without the troubles of asking users to migrate to another platform.
