Nvidia has been in the clouds for ten years or more and they know their way around. You may remember GRID, the VMware/Citrix remote computing solution that Nvidia was a part of. And then there’s GeForce Now, its game streaming platform. The company also offers Shield, cloud-based TV delivery, and of course, its render farms, cloud computer, and AI training. Sometimes you might even know when the resource you’re accessing is on the cloud or real. So, it really isn’t a big surprise when Nvidia shows you a fully rendered highly detailed image from the cloud on your smartphone using an AR app, is it? During a keynote presentation for Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles, Nvidia’s CEO Jensen Huang revealed Nvidia’s new AR software, CloudXR. With the Nvidia CloudXR SDK, the rendered car was streamed to a 5G-enabled mobile phone on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A realtime, live demo—no pre-rendered tricked-up videos.

That only represents a sliver of Sony's installed base of 110 million PS4s, but that foothold has encouraged developers to produce more stand-alone VR games and add-on experiences for PS4 games.
