    Cloud gaming is not worth it! Our internet is not ready and these companies also are not ready to meet gamers expectations. Fuck casual gaming, even as a casual it's not worth it. Cloud gaming should just for now and spend that money making the current systems better

    I hope Geforce now can come with higher resolution and fps, and ray tracing. Just imagine paying a low price in a month instead of buying an insanely expensive gpu. You can use the money on a good chair, mouse, keyboard and monitor instead!

  • Federico

    you should give a try at boosteroid, in Europe works really well! I can play even warzone and apex with an average of 15-20 ms of latency. bad thing is that is only 60fps but being able to play it this good at 1080p with rtx and all maxed out on an old dual core laptop is priceless, and is only 9 bucks a month or 50 a year. tried it because my pc is broken but i'm seriously thinking about not buying a new expensive pc, hoping that the technology will improve even more. Per gli italiani va particolarmente bene visto che i server sono a Milano

    Said it before, but any company with a history of political censorship and privacy violations is NOT getting subscription money from me, especially not in a case like this. I don't want to depend on something that they can just take away because they're intolerant dumbasses chasing the latest shift in the overton window. It better say in the EULA that they will not shut down your service for any reason or they can get f**ked. And before you "it's a private company" me, consider that they take in billions of dollars from foreign governments all the time in exchange for "requests," not to mention the lobbying they do. Hell, Google openly admitted to helping China with their social credit system (used to blacklist and deprive people of basic services like transportation and finance if they've criticized gov't or brought up taboo topics)

    dude, you cant control shit in Android version of Geforce now. apect ratio will randomly go crazy after updates, you cant see the entire library of games that are supported, you have to select games you dont own in order to get caught in the steam menu to change the button layout on your controller. go with shadow. Nvidia sucks ass.

    I've tried the free trial of Playstation Now on PC today and witnessed massive latency and unstable internet connection and the flashing problem you see in this video. Turns out iif you look at the graphic settings of the app you'll see that it's using your GPU and hardware acceleration by default. I unchecked that and now it works just fine like any other cloud gaming services. I'm using an old Dell latitude shipped with an intel graphic card.

  • OldManGrey

    You don't necessarily need a GPU, but you do need at least an IGPU so that there is a display on the monitor. And IGPU's can be a problem if you're playing more CPU focused games like Minecraft Java Edition as it's not just focusing on the CPU
