Visiting nana

It would be a good service for the week you spend at nana's with nothing to do.... but what is to determine which pc/device the game actually gets played on? So four mates get together, each buys a seperate game then share the details of their accounts ... less revenue for developers and the greed machine increases their monopoly? Smells anticompetitive to me and arrogant of nvidia in the way it appears to have been rolled out.

What has that got to do with GFN?. You can do that without having it.

Even if you sign into Steam via GFN, you still deal with the same authentications as before so there isnt a single difference between going via Friends accounts from your bedroom pc or via GFN in some remote location from a potatoe laptop.

It's simple. Greedy developers. They gain very little from this, and most likely get zero revenue from Nvidias subscriptions. If Nvidia can improve the latency, I would have thought it would entice sales for some games. Gamers may have thought there was no point purchasing AAA titles because their machine couldnt handle it. Well now they can. But GFN right now isnt quite good enough for your twitch reaction style game.

I would simply counter that argument by saying they've obviously adopted Nvidia's very own business model to slap them with.

Sorry, with Nvidia's price gouging in recent years they will get zero sympathy as a consumer from me, yes it's a great concept - it's just been introduced by the wrong company for some.

Why do people always blame developers? Literally anything negative about anything gaming related. Straight to the developers throats. "Greedy this, shady that, only in it for the money" etc.

Developers in the gaming industry don't make a whole lot. They definitely aren't greedy. If they were they would find a much higher less stressful software engineering job.

Shady reflects the company management. The workers are just trying to get along and build something to be passionate about. Sometimes corporate screws it up. Big shocker.

The developers aren't pulling out of GFN. It's publisher's. They'd rather create their own ecosystem of streaming service via Azure or other cloud provider. It's pretty simple.
Just like RGB. They could all follow a standard but they won't. It's literally just f*'ing colors they fight about. You be crazy if you thought games aren't the same way. They already have that with launchers.

Well said that man. Publishers are and have for quite some time been a black mark on the gaming industry.
Whilst it is greed I get it from a business point of view. Nvidia are using their (others) IP's to advertise there own service whilst giving nothing back to the publishers. No different to if this site ads were hijacked but then OC3D received no income from the advertiser or a game advertising best played on Nvidia cards without even speaking to Nvidia, What if that service becomes a blight and their games and brands are tarnished. Nvidia should have done deals with the big distributors like valve and epic and all of this could have been avoided but it was probably a cost saving decision.

They are still selling the collection on Xbone and PS4 for £25. That is probably why.

It's annoying because due to the constant searching for where to go in BS 1 I wanted to play BS 2 with a controller, only it doesn't support one on PC which is quite hilarious.

I'm not paying £25 for it though when I already own all of them on Steam.

Actually you are 100% correct. And I apologise to developers because I intended to write publishers.
