Top 5 Cloud Gaming Platforms

Top 5 Cloud Gaming Services on the NVIDIA SHIELD 2021

As our entertainment package includes both an NVIDIA SHIELD and ZYBRE Games membership, we thought why not combine the two together and the Top Five Cloud Gaming Platforms on the Android TV Media Player itself from our favourite to well…. our least favourite.

So without further ado, here is our list.

5. Stadia

Stadia offers some of the biggest AAA games like FIFA 22 and Far Cry 6, however, majority of the games require individual purchase. The platform does have an option for a pro membership, where you can access free to play games, though is very limited.

4. Boosteroid

Like Stadia, Boosteroid also includes some of the biggest games on their platform like GTA5, Call of Duty: Warzone and FIFA 22. Their powerful remote servers gives direct access to these games, meaning like you don’t need to waste time on downloads or updates.

3. AirConsole

Probably the platform that differs the most from the others, but offers something completely different and unique when it comes to cloud gaming. Built for friends and family, the platform offers 180+ games of fun multiplayer entertainment that is great for a gaming night. Play games like Pool Party, Never Have I Ever or even 8 Ball Pool.

2. ZYBRE Games

We can’t add our own cloud gaming platform without ranking it high on the list, so we’ve put it at number two. Right now the platform consists of 200+ free to play games for users, with the library targeted to everyone, friends, families and the typical gamers. But, whilst the platform has a lot to offer now, there’s still even more in the pipeline that’s going to make ZYBRE Games even better.

1. NVIDIA GeForce NOW

Well it kinda makes sense that NVIDIA GeForce NOW is at the top of platforms inon the NVIDIA SHIELD, I mean they’re made by the same company. However, regardless of that the service is at the very top when it comes to high quality gaming, with its low latency and 4K 60 FPS streaming. Operating with a library of over 1000+ games, the platform connects to game stores such as Steam, Epic Games and Ubisoft Connect, meaning you can access the library of games you already own such as Far Cry 6 as well as 80+ free to play games.

What is Cloud Gaming and Cloud Gaming Services?

Cloud gaming, also know as gaming-on-demand, is one of the most exciting and sought after innovations in recent years.  The terms ‘cloud gaming’ comes from the idea that the user plays video games through remote servers, which are then streamed onto their device such as phones, tablets or TV’s.  

For example, you could be playing Dead by Daylight via GeForce NOW on your TV, but then decide that you want to play it on your phone. Cloud gaming allows you to do this without losing any progress you made on the TV… well, unless you forgot to save the game, then there’s much you can do there really.

Another and more familiar comparison would be comparing it to video-on-demand services like Netflix, Disney+ or any other services that supply videos from the cloud onto a users device.

To conclude, cloud gaming is the future of gaming, without a shadow of a doubt and it’s evident through the number of users moving across from consoles to the platforms listed above. 

An even bigger sign of its growth is the incorporation of cloud gaming services from top console creators like Sony and Microsoft through their consoles PlayStation and Xbox, the prior currently undergoing redevelopment and the latter only released over a year ago.
