Nvidia is unlocking access to its GeForce Now streaming service on Microsoft Edge, allowing Xbox owners to play PC games on their consoles.
GeForce Now includes access to over 1,000 PC games, and Nvidia just included the Edge browser in a beta update for its platform, which has now shipped to Xbox.
Basically, the dream of playing PC games on Xbox is one step closer to reality, as the result is easy access to cloud games. Due to the fact that the original GeForce Now service is free, you can use the service for an hour to play the most popular PC titles, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2 and League of Legends, at 1080p.
In addition, Americans has unveiled a new, more expensive plan that promises “peak latency” and streaming at up to 120 fps in 1440p on PC and Mac, and 60 fps in 4K HDR. NVIDIA Shield TV.
What makes it even more interesting is that the Edge browser on Xbox also allows you to use a keyboard mouse, so you can play some games that don’t even have gamepad support. It’s not the most ideal Xbox experience right now, as the virtual keyboard appears when you click, and the latency isn’t great for multiplayer games.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently committed to bringing games exclusively to Xbox PC via the company’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service. Unfortunately, I don’t know when that will happen, but it’s likely the feature will be available eventually. Till then, GeForce Now via browser is the best option.
With the addition of Nvidia GeForce Now levels of detail and even the RTX 3080 on the edge, it would be great to see a program xbox Officially for the service, but even more interesting, a way to play these games for PC and PlayStation.
