Today, Nvidia is granting Microsoft Edge users access to its GeForce Now streaming service, enabling Xbox owners to play Steam PC games on their consoles. Nvidia has finally begun supporting the Edge browser that is currently pre-installed on Xbox in a beta update to GeForce Now, which gives users access to more than 1,000 PC titles.
As a result, it makes it simple to stream PC games to an Xbox, bringing the goal of playing PC games on an Xbox one step closer to realisation. You may stream well-known PC games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, and League of Legends at 1080p for an hour session as the base GeForce Now service is free.
Using Parsec, which is essentially a remote desktop application that enables you to broadcast what is on your PC to a browser, I have been able to accomplish this in the past. GeForce Now is a much better option because you can just connect to the service through your browser and start playing games without needing to own a PC that can play these games.
This is made even more intriguing by the fact that you can play some games that don’t even support gamepads using the Xbox Edge browser, which also supports mouse and keyboard input. Because the virtual keyboard shows when you click and the latency isn’t excellent for multiplayer games, it’s not the best Xbox experience right now.
Phil Spencer, the Xbox division manager at Microsoft, recently announced his business would use its Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) service to deliver entire PC games on the Xbox. Although the exact date of their ultimate arrival is still unknown, GeForce Now in the browser currently serves as the best stand-in.
It would be fantastic to see an official Xbox client for the service as well as a method to play these PC games on PlayStation, especially now that Nvidia has expanded GeForce Now to Edge and even added an RTX 3080 tier.
