After Google Stadia’s success, Nvidia made few changes in GeForce Now and made it more accessible. While Stadia is not a steady path, Nvidia wants to make a platform stable. So, They increased the GeForce Now Priority Tier Price to $10/Month. Instead of struggling to manage the platform, It is better to save the platform by a confident move.
Nvidia’s GeForce Now is now more expensive than before
The Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming platform (launched last year) is getting an increase in the subscription price for its new “Priority” tier. GeForce Now Priority tier is now available at $10 ($9.99) per month against the $5 ($4.99) launch price.
There’s no doubt that GeForce Now is one of the best platforms to stream intriguing games, but the additional price doesn’t seem so good. But, existing subscribers are exempted from the price, albeit until they cancel their subscription and decide to return later. Here’s everything you should know about the new Priority tier and Nvidia’s GeForce Now gaming platform’s increased pricing.
Nvidia GeForce Now Priority Tier Price increased to $10/Month
Prior, when you sign up to the platform, there’s a “Free” tier you can apply for to test out the platform. However, this free tier is well-limited; hence, there’s a “Founders” tier for $4.99 per month, which allows you to explore all the features and benefits of the platform.
But, in a recent press release from Nvidia, the company had renamed its Founders tier to “Priority,” and the tier is now available at $9.99 – approx $10 – which is twice the price it was before. Regardless, the free tier is still available for people who want to test the platform before becoming premium subscribers.
This price update is for new members, as existing subscribers would still have to pay the normal amount for their subscription plan – $5 per month, $25 per 6 months, or $50 per year. GeForce Now already supporting Apple Macbook M1. So, It is slowly entering into a huge user base.
The conditions for existing customers
If you’re an existing customer, for as long as you don’t allow your subscription to expire, you will keep paying the old price – because, for current subscribers, Nvidia assures that the price is “locked for life.” However, if you allow your subscription to expire, you’d renew at the new price – $10 per month, $50 for 6 months, or $100 per year.
Free customers are still limited to one-hour game sessions. At the same time, Priority tier subscribers will get extended sessions up to four hours and enjoy RTX graphics support.
Nvidia GeForce Now Priority tier costs $9.99 per month, $50 for six months, and $99 for a year-long subscription.

The company promised to GeForce Now game library and more day-and-date releases and free-to-play games. Furthermore, the company said it’s working on opening new data centers in Phoenix and Montreal.
