Sony has revealed that it is teaming up with Samsung in order to bring the PlayStation game streaming service into the rival Smart TVs manufacturer, Samsung. Sony is going all hands aboard in order to get the PlayStation Now in more homes.
Sony has said that almost 200 games that were released on PlayStation 3 would be made available to the stream. Furthermore, this service would run at its full potential, especially things like trophies, online multiplayer games along with the functionality for saving games progress on the cloud while on the go. This is also how the service runs on Bravia TVs and PlayStation game consoles and all you require is one of Sony’s Dual Shock 4 gamepads to control the action.
This is huge for Sony because of several reasons. For one, Samsung is the first non Sony device that gets Now and Samsung virtually owns the TV market. Secondly, Samsung doesn’t have its own game console either and over the past years has relied heavily on casual titles like Angry Birds and Monopoly to boost any built-in gaming.
