NVIDIA GeForce Now for the Shield device is like Netflix for gaming

Posted on Wednesday, Sep 30 2015 @ 17:02 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
NVIDIA introduces GeForce NOW, a new cloud-based game streaming service for the Shield console that uses a Netflix-like monetisation model. For $7.99 a month you get access to over 50 popular games, which are streamed to your NVIDIA Shield device in 1080p Full HD quality and at 60 frames per second.

Everything is streamed so you don't need fancy hardware to run the latest games in high quality. You open up the client and 30 seconds later you'll be playing AAA games like the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. At least, that's the promise. It's going to be interesting to see if latency doesn't screw up the gameplay experience.
You listen to music on Spotify. You watch movies on Netflix. Instant gaming gratification should always be a button press away, too.

That’s why we’re introducing the GeForce NOW on-demand gaming service for our SHIELD family of gaming devices.

Discover, Click, Play, Repeat
Forget waiting for hours for games to download. Stream the latest titles from our powerful cloud-gaming supercomputers in an instant. With our streaming technology, epic games such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are never more than 30 seconds away.

GeForce NOW is your game library in the sky. See all the titles we offer from a game series at a glance — like the LEGO collection or the Batman Arkham series — for binge gaming. Use voice search to find your favorite games. Search through games by category. Or quickly browse the latest and most popular games.

Next-Gen Quality
GeForce NOW is the first cloud-gaming service to stream at full high-definition 1080p quality and at 60 frames per second. Membership costs just $7.99 a month with the first three months free. GeForce NOW arrives on Oct. 1 in North America, the European Union and Japan with more than 50 popular games included. And it offers members the option to buy and play many more in an instant.

Get the Latest GeForce Gaming Technology with a Single Click
GeForce NOW is all about instant gratification. But it took us a decade to invent the technology behind the service that streams GeForce GTX-quality graphics to SHIELD devices.

GeForce NOW is a service designed, built and operated all by NVIDIA. We’ve optimized every piece of the technology behind GeForce NOW for gaming. That includes the low-latency game controller we built for SHIELD. The Tegra processors we built for our SHIELD devices. The advanced game engine we built into our GeForce GTX-powered servers.

So you’ll enjoy games at their best. You’ll enjoy GameWorks enhancements for special effects. And your experience will get better every year as we build more powerful GPUs and gaming technologies into GeForce NOW.

Think of GeForce NOW as your gaming supercomputer in the cloud. Next-gen gaming is now easy and instant.
