Samsung TVs to Offer PlayStation Gaming via Streaming by Next Year

December 26, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s always good when two tech giants rub shoulders to come up with something new.

This time around, Samsung TV owners and PlayStation lovers will get to experience the thrill with news of a great partnership building around.

Samsung smart TVs will start offering PlayStation Now services to its users in the regions of the US and Canada before the halfway point of next year. A working internet connection along with a Dualshock controller will mean that users could cherish over 200 PS3 games on their Samsung TV without having to integrate their TV with any physical console.

You could avail all the features of Sony’s game streaming services on your Samsung TV like online multiplayer gaming, collecting in-game rewards and saving the game progress.

Game data will be transferred via Cloud Services, which will let users access PS3 games by live streaming and skipping the need for any downloads.

Samsung TV with PlayStation Now access will be making its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and the services will be extended to consumers by the first half of 2015.

However, it is not clear whether the game streaming service would be offered to people outside the US and Canada at a later stage. No word on that yet, but we will sure update you of it when the company reveals more of it next month at the consumer expo.

Samsung will be the first to offer PlayStation Now services on a device not from Sony. The service is currently available with Sony’s gaming console and on some of its smart TVs.

The company has revealed that it’s looking forward for the new expansion of its PS Now services, with gestures implying that the service will be rolling out to even more of non-Sony devices.
