This is kinda weird right?
Like what about this is "Steam Cloud"?
I thought the whole point of GeForce NOW was that it let you play games you already otherwise owned... so this is just Steam/Valve being okay with that? K then.
The story here doesn't make it quite clear, but this is not a public announcement, the snippet comes from the Steamworks developer knowledgebase. It isn't a user-facing feature -- they still have to go through GeForce Now -- but a back-end integration for participating games.
Notice that other story about NVIDIA throwing their hands up in air and being done with trying to add games to their service, just to have the publisher come back and demand they're pulled? They decided that from now on, publishers have to opt in to have their game available through GeForce Now, and with this partnership and Steamworks integration, VALVE is handling that process for any game they sell. I bet they will be promoting GFN in some ways, too.
