After Nvidia launched its own game streaming service, the company has attracted well over a million new users. However, most of these streamers are users utilizing the free service tier presented to them. This free service tier allows for a free hour of streaming gameplay. This also limits the stream quality that is received from the service’s servers.
All of the free trial users are all within a 90-day trial window, where they can see how the streaming service levels up to the rest of them. After the trial period ends though, it is unsure how many will continue to use it and pay $5 per month for it.
With the millions of users utilizing this service, it shows that Nvidia has quite a strong start. In contrast, Sony had reported that it had a million users subscribe to its $60/year with its PlayStation Now streaming platform. These numbers were as of November of 2019, 5 years after it first launched the streaming service.
The large launch from Nvidia has partly to do with it’s extended closed beta, where they stated that 300,000 users had logged well over 70 million streaming hours. GeForce Now currently hosts tons of games from multiple platforms, including Steam and Epic Games.
This is quite a startup. I didn’t know such a service could start out so strong. GeForce Now having had lots of users in such a short amount of time gives me hope that new and budding players may have a chance before all the major players move over and test out the new platform. I look forward to seeing where GeForce Now will go in the future. It is seeming to be a strong competitor to Google Stadia.
