Sony’s PlayStation Now service has been up and running for a little while now. This streaming game service allows for PS4, PS3, PS Vita and PS TV owners to stream games to their console rather than have physical media. This is really a new era in gaming as the cloud is doing the game rendering and processing and it is then streamed to the user. It has just been announced that Samsung’s newest 2015 TV’s will support the PlayStation Now service, but without the need for a console at all.
All owners of new Samsung TV’s will need to have is a DualShock controller and the app. PlayStation Now’s initial library of 200 games will be available. This is a big thing as it really eliminates the console from the home game equation altogether. You have to remember that Sony’s console business is still very big, but this could just be a test to see how things go. They should make quite a lot from the PlayStation Now service and licensing of the compatible app on different platforms.
These new TV’s that support PlayStation Now will be on display at CES 2015, so we will give you the full scoop in a little over a week!
