PlayStation Now coming to Samsung Smart TVs next year

New, 11 comments

PlayStation Now, Sony's game-streaming service that launched in beta on several PlayStation platforms earlier this year, will make its way to Samsung Smart TVs in the first half of 2015, Sony announced yesterday evening.

The service will operate similarly to how it works on current platforms; using a DualShock 4 controller, owners of select Samsung sets with Smart Hub functionality can launch the app, and stream from a catalog of PlayStation 3 titles. Games streamed will have the same features they do on PlayStation's hardware, including cloud saves and unlockable Trophies.

The technology will be on demo at Samsung's booth during CES 2015, which will be held January 6 - 9 in Las Vegas. For more on PlayStation Now, check out a video demonstration of a few games being streamed on PS4 — or check out some thoughts on the service's bizarre rental prices.
