Many people state that cloud gaming is soon to become the ‘future of gaming’ as it allows the barrier to entry for playing games at the highest level to be much lower and not require as much technical skills as it does currently. Now while this doesn’t apply to me as I am fairly knowledgeable when it comes to PC Gaming that hasn’t stopped various companies wanting to take a stab at this kind of service. While Google Stadia hasn’t exactly done too well right now there is another contender right now, Nvidia’s GeForce Now.
However, things are currently a bit rocky for the service. While conceptually it does have a much better idea than Stadia (allowing you to play any game on any library that you previously owned it on, so no streamed game list but just taking your own installed game list) it seems as though they are dealing with a legal nightmare at the current moment. Firstly Activision decided to pull their games out of the service which of course was a huge blow to the company but now also Bethesda has done the same. Due to this many people are not so sure if the service is stable enough to actually use it as while it may offer the best idea in concept if publishers just end up pulling their games from the service then you simply will not be able to play them. Apparently this has all been due to a ‘misunderstanding’ concerning certain fees being payed by the company to use their games for the service but as of current Nvidia is unfortunately being fairly tight lipped regarding the issue. Let’s hope that things get sorted out however as if cloud gaming does become big then this service does at least look like it’s going in the right direction.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
