    Re: Nvidia GeForce Now: Microsoft and Warner Bros head to the exit

    So...A better list to show is actually who out of the large name publishers (not indie/small time) are actually left.

    Looking at the list there is going to be very little left that I would want to play on GeForce Now

    I can 'kind of' understand microsoft pulling out, they're going to have their own competing product so makes sense for them to have their own 'exclusives'.

    The rest leaving just screams of wanting more money by requiring players to re-buy the games again on each streaming platform.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce Now: Microsoft and Warner Bros head to the exit

    Nvidia has sent out an email to GeForce Now Founders members announcing that it is delaying the initial billing date until June 2020.

    "As you can imagine, we’re experiencing a substantial increase in the number of GeForce NOW players and their amount of playtime.

    While the service continues to grow, we have decided to take this opportunity to show our early Founders members our appreciation, and will not begin billing until June 2020.

    Your first charge date has been extended. Please check account.nvidia.com for more information.

    Stay safe and happy gaming.

    The GeForce NOW Team"

    Re: Nvidia GeForce Now: Microsoft and Warner Bros head to the exit

    Whilst Warner Bros don't really have anywhere near enough games to launch their own platform, I'm sure this will be something they are mindful of.

    The gaming sector is still very young and has a very, very promising future.

    I'd imagine Warner Bros secretly wishing they could do with gaming what they've recently done with movies / tv.

    Microsoft obviously have their own things and whilst they are opening up a little, I feel the Nvidia model would be almost direct competition to what Microsoft are close to releasing (XCloud).

    There will be many more companies pull out over the next year, I'm unsure if Nvidia can do anything to stop them. They'd need a lot of users paying decent rates to be able to pass funds on, in order to appease devs, but I don't think they can do enough.

    Or they could start buying rights to games or buying out some game studios. Take the Apple approach

    The gaming sector is 40+ years old.

    Older than that. I was playing COD WW2 the other day and that was based off the original COD games which were in turn a rip off of an absolutely MASSIVE game that was played in the early 40s. Everyone was playing it. So, yeh. Way older than 40+ years.

    "You have successfully downgraded your Founders to Free."

    Ciao.

    For what it's worth, I don't blame Nvidia, I think they provide the best game streaming service out there and I won't be using any of the competitors services, especially from those that pulled from Nvidia's service. Unless they're free or close to Nvidia's founders pricing and don't require me purchasing the same games again but even then, it was mostly MMOs like Wow and Classic that I found great to play on the Nvidia streaming and I can't see Blizzard bothering to put forward any streaming service, given that most of their staff in Europe at least have been let go.

    Seems like another case of the consumer getting screwed, there is the potential for NVidia to really changeup the dynamics of the games market and that is of course scary in the rights owners...
