Game streaming service has been pretty popular over last couple of years. Apart from its impressive catalog, GeForce Now streaming service has been popular among gamers due to its affordable $5 per month fees. If you haven’t signed up for the service before, it looks like you’ll need to pay $10 per month in case you want to subscribe to the service moving forward.
In a recent interview, Phil Eisler, head of GeForce Now revealed that the new price was been target all along. He said, “It’s been a little over a year (for the founders price). And now we’re coming with the main plan, which we call GeForce Now Priority. Our $9.99 price was always our target price based on the cost of operating the service. We’re seeing people engaging in it more and playing a lot more. And we want to make that service grow and continue to expand capacity. And that’s the price point that enables us to do it.”
This news comes as Nvidia is set to release a new update that will improve streaming quality. Eisler said, “We’re able to provide a very smooth 60-hertz frame rate for those supported games and we’re pretty excited about that.”
At the moment, GeForce now has about 10 million subscribers and the number is likely to grow over the coming months. As a result, it makes sense that the company is increasing the price for new players. If you had signed up before the increase, you’ll keep your current subscription.
