Samsung and Sony have collectively announced that PlayStation Now game streaming service will be available on select Smart TVs from Samsung starting the first half of 2015. For a start, the service will be available to consumers in the US and Canada. Consumers can access and play over 200 PlayStation 3 games directly from the cloud, without a need to buy a gaming console or to visit a physical retail store to buy a games. The service will be launched as an app, which can be accessed through the Smart Hub. After launching the desired game, consumers can play it using Sony’s DualShock 4 wireless gaming controller. To access this service without any interrupted, gamers need to have access to high-speed (read more than 5Mbps) internet in their homes and a Sony Entertainment Network account. PlayStation Now will offer all the expected functionalities such as in-game trophies, online multiplayer gaming with friends, and saving game progress in the cloud. This is an interesting deal between both the companies as the PlayStation Now service is already being offered in Sony TVs (currently in beta mode).

Youngchan Kim, Vice President at Samsung Electronics said, “We are excited to collaborate with PlayStation to deliver even more entertainment value to our Smart TV platform. 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.

Since we first introduced PlayStation Now at CES 2014, our vision has been to open the world of PlayStation to the masses by offering the service on the devices they use every day. Partnering with Samsung is a key step toward realizing this vision, as we can reach a broader audience of consumers who may not own a PlayStation console to show them why gaming with PlayStation is such a unique and amazing experience,” said Masayasu Ito, Executive Vice President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.

Samsung will showcase the PlayStation Now game streaming service during the upcoming CES 2015 event in Las Vegas.
