Microsoft has announced that it is expanding its Xbox PC gaming to Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now. This will allow GeForce Now users to play Xbox games on their PCs without owning an Xbox console.
Microsoft has been expanding its gaming presence on PC in recent years, making Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming available on PC. The addition of GeForce Now will further extend the availability of Xbox games to PC players who may not have the hardware to run them locally.
The move is a strategic one for Microsoft, which is looking to increase its market share in the gaming industry. With the expansion of Xbox gaming to cloud platforms like GeForce Now, Microsoft is hoping to reach a wider audience and offer more options for playing its games.
Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been growing in popularity since its launch in 2015. The service currently has over 10 million users and allows users to play PC games on a range of devices, including smartphones and tablets.
The partnership with Microsoft is a big win for Nvidia, as it gives the company access to a large library of popular Xbox games. Nvidia has been working to expand its game library and attract more users to its platform, and the addition of Xbox games will be a significant boost for the service.
The move is also likely to put pressure on Microsoft’s main rival in the gaming industry, Sony, which has its own cloud gaming service, PlayStation Now. With the addition of GeForce Now, Microsoft is expanding its reach and giving gamers more options for how they want to play their favorite games.
