Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service launched only recently and already it's racking up some impressive results, with numbers seemingly favouring it over Google Stadia. Granted, the free trial part of the deal certainly helps.
In their recent blog, Nvidia posted the latest numbers and they really do bode well for the green team. "Earlier this month, we passed a milestone on our cloud gaming journey by removing the waitlist and opening our doors to more gamers. Over 1 million new gamers have taken to the cloud by signing up for a free plan or upgrading to the Founders membership, which includes a 90-day free trial", they wrote.
Nvidia isn't oblivious about the trial period being a risk, but they claim it's well worth it, as gamers, developers and publishers can try out the best GeForce Now offers without commitment.
At the same time, Nvidia gets to polish their product further, which is not to be understated at what are still early days for this iteration of their cloud gaming service.
Nvidia also referenced Activision Blizzard's seemingly abrupt decision to pull their catalogue from the service, which almost looked like a feud before it was cleared up . It turned out that Activision Blizzard wanted to strike an official deal, while Nvidia misread the small print and thought that the initial trial-period will include the former's games.
"As we approach a paid service, some publishers may choose to remove games before the trial period ends. Ultimately, they maintain control over their content and decide whether the game you purchase includes streaming on GeForce NOW. Meanwhile, others will bring games back as they continue to realize GeForce NOW’s value (stay tuned for more on that)", they wrote.
You probably heard by now that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce Now on the day it's released , and they've even got a special edition Cyberpunk 2077 card . If you're more of a free-to-play guy, they'll have you covered too with Fortnite, League of Legends, Warframe, World of Tanks and more.
"And we have an additional 1,500 games in our onboarding queue, from publishers that share a vision of expanding PC gaming to more people", they wrote.
