NVIDIA on GFE Mandatory Logins

NVIDIA responded to a feedback thread on the GeForce Forums to confirm that they have no plans on eliminating the login requirement for their GeForce Experience software (thanks Rhialto). Here's most of the post:

I've explained this before in other posts, but here it is again in a nutshell: Login is what establishes the link between your system and the rest of the GeForce ecosystem. That's how we establish the connection that lets you stream from your PC to your Shield. That's how you redeem GeForce Experience rewards into your account. It's what lets you stream games from GeForce Now to your PC. And it's how we will enable many other features in the future to give you the most seamless experience across your different devices and platforms.

To the conspiracy theorists, this has nothing to do with spying, tracking, or other nefarious activities. When we decided to reboot GeForce Experience with version 3.0 to fulfill the vision we have in mind for it we had a tough decision to make, but think about it: How much worse would it have been to release 3.0 without the login requirement, and then add it on with version 3.3, or 3.5, or 3.8? That would have been even worse.

I'm a developer on the GeForce Experience team. I don't speak PR, I can only give you my honest opinion. We are trying to build a product that's useful to you, and that offers powerful features when you need them and doesn't otherwise bog down your machine when you don't. Except for when things get real busy I read every single question, complaint, message, and response posted here. We do take feedback very seriously, and every request is tracked meticulously on a giant roadmap. Often we can't roll out features as quickly as you would like us to, because we decided to address one of the other big complaints first and improve stability and robustness so that GeForce Experience and the Share overlay run smoothly and without issues for everybody.
