Discord Is Shutting Down the Nitro Games Library Because of Lack of Use

After only being available for about a year, Discord is going to be shutting down the Nitro Games catalogue from its Nitro Subscription service. This comes right when the the subscription service was nearing its one-year anniversary.

For those of you who are unaware, (I don’t blame you if you are) Discord Nitro is a monthly subscription service and Nitro games was apart of that. On top of games, the service gives out animated emojis, new customization options, and a larger upload limit. However, Nitro Games mainly let players play from a limited number of titles.

Per Polygon, A Discord representative spoke to the cancelation in an announcement. “We learned a lot from all of you over the last year. Through your valuable feedback, it became clear that while we and some of you love these games, the truth is the vast majority of Nitro subscribers didn’t play them.”

The Nitro Games catalogue will be closing on October 15. Players who are still subscribed will have access to those titles up until that date. Discord also announced that users that would like to cancel their membership and get a refund can do so by contacting the company.

Discord will continue the Discord Nitro subscription service and will keep the price at $9.99 a month. The company will boost the file upload size to 100mb.

Twitch Removing Game Purchasing Options After November 27

Twitch will be removing the ability for viewers of livestreams to purchase games and in-game items directly through the service on November 27, 2018.

This feature, which was first implemented in April of 2017, allowed viewers of livestreams the option to “Buy Now” and purchase the game being streamed and help support the streamer they were watching financially. In a statement given to Techraptor, Amazon explained the decision as made due to the feature failing to increase revenue for streamers.

“We are discontinuing this feature to invest in other ways to help you obtain games and in-game items directly on Twitch while supporting streamers – including through extensions on Twitch like Amazon Blacksmith, which allows viewers to supports streamers through purchases of games and other items.”

Content purchased through this feature will not be lost, content can still be redeemed by linking your account, games can still be played through the desktop app or UPlay, and all unopened Twitch Crates will be opened on November 28 if you do not open them yourself. Games available via Twitch included South Park: The Fractured But Whole, H1Z1, Warframe, and many others. Discord, a chat service, recently opened their own storefront, but does not support any specific server and is just another digital storefront online.
