Since the launch of the PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service, Sony Computer Entertainment has not have reached the level of success it has wanted yet, but the availability of this Gaikai-based service that will be coming sometime next year to non-Sony devices for the very first time could be a good step in the right direction.
Samsung and Sony have reached a deal to include the PlayStation Now service on Internet-ready Samsung Smart TVs. Online movie services such as Netflix are already included as apps on certain Samsung TVs, so, the inclusion of a game service would be an attractive one for casual gamers or non-gamers.
The PlayStation Now (PS Now) service will be available during the first half of 2015. A PS3 controller and a reliable internet connection will be required to play over 200 available games on Samsung Smart TVs.
“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,” stated Masayasu Ito, Executive Vice President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “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.”
