PlayStation Now is Sony’s new streaming service that lets gamers stream games over the internet. Now it seems gamers will not have to own a console in order to use the service. Sony has just announced that they will be bringing PlayStation Now to Samsung Smart TVs. The service will be launched as an app that can be accessed through Samsung’s Smart hub. The players will have to use a Dualshock 4 controller to control the game.
Sony isn’t afraid to partner with competitors if it means getting PlayStation Now in more homes, apparently. The outfit just announced that it’s teaming with Samsung to bake the PlayStation game-streaming service into some of the rival electronics giant’s smart TVs starting next year. Sony says some 200 PlayStation 3 games will be available to stream, and that the service runs at full functionality, specifically mentioning things like trophies, online multiplayer and cloud-saves for game-progress. Sound familiar? It should because that’s how the service works on Bravia TVs and PlayStation game consoles. What’s more, all you’ll need is one of Sony’s DualShock 4 gamepads to control the action.
