Google's Stadia is one of the more well-known game streaming services right now but word is going around that NVIDIA will undercut Google with lower prices. The GPU designer is wrapping up the beta phase of its GeForce NOW service and will reportedly charge $4.99 a month for the premium tier. This offer will be valid for the first year, after that the price will increase, presumably to $7.99 per month.
A report from VideoCardz.com (which is reliable for gaming information despite the name) claims that Nvidia is planning on a $4.99 monthly fee for the premium GeForce Now service tier. Free users will have their gaming sessions capped at 1 hour, and they’ll have to wait longer to get a slot on Nvidia’s servers. Paying customers get priority access, longer sessions, and RTX ray-tracing support. However, the $4.99 fee might be a limited time offer for just the first year.
So far, cloud gaming hasn't really catched on. It's an interesting technique but most gamers still prefer to run games locally.
