Hi, Samurai! How do you like that: Cyberpunk 2077 in its best shape – with maxed out graphics with ray tracing, with RTX will be available at launch on GeForce Now platform And you might say “nobody needs cloud-based gaming” but the war for content has already begun! And it wouldn’t be such a surprise for you, if you had subscribed to this channel a bit earlier and followed what I was telling I bet that Cyberpunk 2077 in its original version – as it was conceived – we’ll see only on PC And the difference with console versions will be significant We’ve received two important signs in the last month: 1) Nvidia in tandem with CD Projekt announced the exclusive limited version of their card 2080 Ti branded by Cyberpunk It hints us how important this card is for the game I’ve already told that probably Cyberpunk 2077 will be the 1st full-scale triple-A game employing ALL capabilities of ray tracing It’s aiming to squeeze all juices of 2080 Ti, so CD Projekt is honing the game especially for this card, so that it may look its best and run smoothly But knowing CD Projekt, anything may happen! 🙂 What’s more interesting is that this news goes hand in hand (just several days apart) with Blizzard’s withdrawal of all of their games from GeForce Now and announcement of a multi-year partnership with Google The conclusions are obvious: apparently the content war has begun None of the services is ready. Google Stadia is formally launched, but everyone understands that this is beta GeForce Now has barely come out of beta in America. And there was a scandal connected with it: Nvidia asked for Blizzard’s permission to test their games during GeForce Now’s beta period But when the release happened, Blizzard said “Hey! Wait a second! You’re going to make money off our games?” Nvidia responded they had a misunderstanding with Blizzard, ‘cause their financial model doesn’t imply making money on the games themselves: it only provides a service. GeForce Now only lets you play already purchased games: bought on Steam, Epic Games Store and other platforms You only pay for the service, for the ability to play from your phone, a weak PC or any other device You can play any game you’ve already bought. But officially, for now, Blizzard isn’t happy with this approach It’s unclear whether the companies will strike a deal or not But you have to agree that the news that Blizzard is closing a multi-year deal with Google and is planning to host all their broadcasts and premieres EXCLUSIVELY on YouTube – that’s quite a significant development I think it also implies that Blizzard’s new titles are going to be exclusive for Google Stadia Although it’s all written in water and may change many times – let’s see. But probably it’s like I said And we’re also waiting for the announcement of the cloud service by Amazon in conjunction with Twitch where Twitch will act as a showcase – the same way YouTube will for Google Stadia in the future None of these 3 services have yet gained any popularity. One of them we haven’t seen yet. But! The content war are already brewing And I do believe that public opinion on game streaming is going to change exponentially GeForce Now is already launched in Russia And as I heard they’ve already reached the top capacity of their 1st cluster, so possibly they will expand soon What’s curious, I received a message from an old-time viewer the other day he supported my channel many times – and you should too: there’s a lot of exclusive stuff, just reminding And he shared his impressions from using GeForce Now on his Android phone (an app came out) And how he, living in St. Petersburg, was blown away by this experience – even with some lags He really gets a kick out of cloud-based streaming! He said, surrounding people are losing their sh*t, unable to comprehend how he’s able to play BIG games on his phone using a gamepad What LOLed me is how he makes fun of sales assistants in stores: strolling up to a demo unit, quickly punching in his GeForce Now’s login and password and starting to play some AAA game which makes them lose their marbles. Like “Did he just install that game on this device?” So, he really poked this tech from all sides. He also played it on a TV, controlling with a smartphone He really “undressed” this technology to the core – and I’m planning to do the same in the nearest future But I have to say goodbye for now. We’re on the verge of some really exciting times I’ve told you: we’re entering a very interesting era, when many videogame staples are shifting Let’s see where it takes us. The future is spellbinding! I’d advise you to be less skeptical and look at the future more optimistically. See you soon We’re cooking many vids now.
