PlayStation games, on a PC, streamed to an Xbox
In recent years, the distinction between video game platforms has become much clearer. If you wanted to play Halo, get an Xbox. If you wanted to play Ratchet and Clank, get a PlayStation. Now, however, those lines are starting to fade.
Additions such as cross-play and more cross-platform versions of companies known to be exclusive to consoles have made the console wars less black and white. Now if you want to play Death Stranding, you can get a PlayStation or a PC. With the recent update to the Xbox Series built-in browser, Nvidia’s PC game streaming service is now available on the system. This means that titles that were not previously available with Xbox cross-purchase can now be streamed, assuming you have the Steam copy of the game. Horizon: Zero Dawn can stream to your Xbox, removing any need. from a PlayStation or a PC.
Their latest client launched on October 21, which means you can try it out for yourself now. Nvidia says its service can outperform an Xbox Series X and will deliver ultra-low latency indistinguishable from local playback.
GeForce Now was previously stuck on Xbox but hasn’t been banned since, which is a bizarre move by Microsoft to allow its biggest competitor Xbox Cloud Gaming to play on its own system. We’re not complaining though, because that means anyone with an Xbox can access a huge game title, including some of Sony’s PC ports. The upcoming God of War port, as well as the Bloodborne remaster, could be enjoyed from the comfort of your mini-fridge-type console.
If you’ve tried choosing a new console, your choice is now even more difficult. If you’re looking for the latest proprietary games from Sony, a PS5 is probably your best bet. If you’re anxiously awaiting Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite, check out a PC or Xbox. A significant amount of Sony exclusives are also coming to PC, a few years late. Which one are you going to watch? Will you be using GeForce Now on your series? Let us know in the comments below!
