Sony are teaming up with Samsung to give gamers the best Television experience ever! Come early 2015 gamers can access almost any PlayStation game without an actual PlayStation console using Samsung smart TVs.

Samsung's smart Internet-connected TVs will now have access the PlayStation Now network.

The service allows users to gain access to a huge selection of PlayStation 3 titles with plans to offer PlayStation 4 titles in the future. Rumours are also a foot to provide access to PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles.

You will need a Sony Dualshock controller, but once that's plugged in, all you have to do is fire up the app on the TV and you can choose from over 200 PS3 games to start playing immediately.

The service features modified PS3 hardware within its data centers, with the processing power equivalent of eight PS3 consoles shrunk onto a single motherboard within a slimline server cabinet; this allows for optimal utilization of physical space, in addition to reducing electricity costs. According to its official website there are more than 150 games available to stream in open beta as of October 2014.

No exact date has yet been offered but we have it on good authority that we will see the app available come February 2015. Launching first in the US, neither company has responded yet to a request for more information on whether the service will be available outside of the US and Canada but again it is almost certain that this will become available to the EU shortly after.


Will this make you buy a Samsung Smart TV?
