NVIDIA will get rid of the separation between the PC/Mac and Shield versions of its GeForce NOW version. Starting this month, a unified version will be offered. The main implication here is that owners of the Android-based Shield console will now get access to the full library of 225 gaming titles. At the moment, GeForce NOW is still in beta phase and is free-to-use. Presumably, NVIDIA will be rolling out a paid version in the future.
Being aimed at computers with keyboards and mice, this version of the cloud-based game streaming service supported a considerably larger library of PC games. To date, the service on PCs/Macs has gained support for 225 titles, significantly higher than the number of titles available for the first-generation service for SHIELD devices.
Starting this month, however, the differentiation between services is coming to an end. NVIDIA is essentially discontinuing the first-generation GeForce NOW service, and in the process is moving SHIELD TV devices to the second-generation service. This will serve to unify GeForce NOW across all platforms, as now PC, Mac, and SHIELD TV will all access the same service.
