...the Nvidia Shield service is basically a virtual pc somewhere running the games you already bought on Steam, Uplay, EGS, Blizzard Launcher etc. by accessing these platforms through your account.
It’s really just expanded access to things you’ve already paid for - on THEIR (Acitblizz’) proprietary library.

Well considering I just had to uninstall Origin because it kept giving me pop ups to log in even after disabling it in my start up settings... things like that are why I like Steam.

SO agree with this comment. I’m mainly a PC gamer and bought a Switch last year. Can’t believe how many games I’ve re-bought to play portable.

I think that swagger’s going to be mitigated by the fact that there’s a subscription fee (for the pro level, anyhow) combined with having to buy the games (which isn’t the case for most other sub-streaming services) on top of the latency problem.
It’s a grand idea, but its pricing model sucks, and the connectivity… Read more
Your comparison to Netflix is a good one. One of the reasons why streaming video subscriptions are worthwhile is because you’re only watching maybe a 2 hour movie or a few TV episodes in one sitting. But if you really love a movie or a show and want to watch it multiple times, you might choose to buy your own digital… Read more
