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.
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.
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.
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
What is Cloud Gaming?
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.
