CES 2015: PlayStation Now on Samsung Smart TVs?

December 29, 2014

Stream games on your Samsung TV.

While PlayStation Now is still on a hit and miss stage, many are praising the streaming capabilities of the service, which lets you play legacy games on newer game consoles that does not support older game discs.

Sony seems to be expanding on the service by introducing PlayStation Now to Samsung Smart TVs in a partnership that will see their new line of TVs being rolled out with the service built into it. It will be an app that will be part of the Smart Hub where you can usually find all apps made for the TV.

“[O]ur vision has been to open the world of PlayStation to the masses by offering the service on the devices they use every day,” said Masayasu Ito, Executive Vice President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. in a statement.

Once you get your hands on the PlayStation Now-equipped Samsung Smart TV, you would only need a DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 controller to be able to play the games. PlayStation Now currently offers 200 PlayStation 3 games for streaming – the only downside is that the service is only available in the US (but we know there are workarounds for that, right?).

Expect the first line of Smart TVs from Samsung with PlayStation Now to be unveiled at next week’s CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
