Samsung Smart TVs to Feature PlayStation Now in 2015
You'll be streaming your way to glory in 2015 thanks to PlayStation Now and Samsung's Smart TVs.
According to JoyStiq, select Samsung Smart TVs shipped in the first half of 2015 will come equipped with PlayStation Now, the game-streaming service that allows players to play experience games across PlayStation's library of games from the PlayStation era to modern hits on the PlayStation 4.
As of this writing, there are over 200 titles available for streaming on the beta, which is now running on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV. Select Sony TVs also come with the service, but in order to fully take advantage of PlayStation Now, Samsung Smart TV owners will have to purchase a DualShock 4 controller.
Youngchan Kim, Vice President at Samsung Electronics, said, "PlayStation Now provides a new dimension to Samsung Smart TVs that consumers have been looking for – blockbuster PS3 games accessed through an intuitive interface that makes it easy to discover and play great gaming experiences. We are excited to collaborate with PlayStation to deliver even more entertainment value to our Smart TV platform."
