Nvidia Opens GRID Datacenter In Central Europe, Announces Three More Titles

Nvidia will add three more titles to its GRID streaming service ahead of the eventual release of the SHIELD platform. This brings the total count to 52 titles, with more games expected to be added in the coming weeks.

The latest game added to GRID is a side-scrolling 2D adventure indie game called La-Mulana. Players have to traverse multiple levels of enemies and traps in order to reach the legendary city of La-Mulana. Other games coming to GRID in the next two weeks include Homefront, a first-person shooter, and F.E.A.R. 3, a horror-based first-person shooter.

The company also added a new data center, this time in Central Europe. Just like the three data centers built in the continental United States, the Central Europe location should bring down latency times for GRID players in the area. Nvidia's expansion plan for more data centers is unknown, but you can bet that it will make more to reduce latency in GRID coverage areas.

GRID is currently a free game streaming service for SHIELD tablet and controller owners. Players had a big upgrade last week when Nvidia announced that games on GRID can now be played at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

However, the high quality stream will soon come at a price. On June 30, GRID will become a subscription-based service with a basic subscription of streamed games at 720p and 30 frames per second, and a premium subscription to stream games at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

    You pay to play a video game and show someone how you do it?

    Central Europe this term is very vague. If for one it is in Romania, I will boycott NVIDIA and those servers.

    Nearly everything they offer could've been picked up from a Humble Bundle for pennies on the dollar.

    You have to pay extra for higher fps and resolution. That is a joke!

    "On June 30, GRID will become a subscription-based service with a basic subscription of streamed games at 720p and 30 frames per second"

    People should be paid to have to endure only 30fps ánd the low resolution + network lag! Its a reason why services like Onlive died...
