Microsoft and NVIDIA recently announced a partnership to bring PC Game Pass to GeForce Now subscribers, giving GeForce Now members access to over 100 PC titles including Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, and Microsoft Flight Simulator from this library.
Microsoft and NVIDIA both benefit significantly from this partnership. For Microsoft, PC Game Pass reaches more gamers without powerful PCs who might otherwise struggle to run PC titles on their own; NVIDIA’s GeForce Now receives a substantial increase in content offerings making it more appealing for gamers searching for ways to play PC titles on less capable devices.
GeForce Now subscribers will have access to PC Game Pass games beginning June 23rd, including playing them on devices that support GeForce Now such as Windows PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, Android phones and iOS phones.
Microsoft and NVIDIA’s partnership is evidence of cloud gaming’s growing significance. As internet speeds improve, cloud gaming becomes more viable as an option for gamers looking to enjoy their favorite titles without needing to meet hardware requirements.
This partnership also signals an increase in competition within the cloud gaming market. Microsoft and NVIDIA are not the only two providers offering cloud gaming services – Amazon, Google and Sony are also major competitors for these services.
Competiton in the cloud gaming market should drive innovation and enhance quality services, benefitting gamers with more choices and enhanced gaming experiences.
