This week feels a little quiet, with GeForce bringing along the usual slew of games and Amazon Luna making its promised titles available. With that, GeForce Now is temporarily dropping the price of its Priority tier.
Bandwidth is iandroid.eu’s weekly look at the cloud gaming market beyond Google’s own Stadia platform. Every Friday, we take a look at the biggest news regarding services such as Nvidia GeForce Now, Amazon Luna, PlayStation Now, and Xbox Game Pass, among others.
GeForce Now discounted Priority Membership
Over the past year or so, we’ve tried many a cloud-gaming service. From Xbox Cloud Gaming to Shadow, we’ve given them their fair shots. Out of everything, we’ve truly enjoyed GeForce Now’s platform, as it makes for some of the most advanced game streaming tech out there.
Currently, GeForce Now is hosting aon their Priority Membership, which is the middle tier that the service offers. A Priority Membership gets you a better rig than the free tier, as well as priority access. This means you spend much less time waiting for a spot to open up at busy times of the day. Your session also extends to six hours of playtime, and you can get up to 1080p resolution with 60 frames per second as well.
For an unspecified amount of time, NVIDIA iswhen you grab a 6-month Priority Membership. What’s usually about $50 comes down to $30 for 6 months – $5/month – of cloud gaming.
While you can definitely get some great usage out of the free tier, GeForce Now’s Priority Membership does give you a chance to really test out the service. So long as you have a good internet connection, GeForce Now is one of the best cloud gaming services out there right now.
On top of that, Geforce Now is also bringing a few new and existing games to the platform. The add includes some popular titles like Sniper Elite 5 and Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach.
Here’s the full list:

- Star Ocean: The Divine Force
- Paper Cut Mansion
- Asterigos: Curse of the Stars
- Draw Slasher
- Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach
- Guild Wars: Game of the Year

GeForce Now’s Priority tier will likely only be discounted for a small amount of time, with NVIDIA not specifying an end date as far as we could tell.
