Samsung PlayStation? PS Now coming to Samsung smart TVs in 2015

Samsung logoStarting at some point next year, new TV buyers won't need a PlayStation to play the selection of PS3 games available on the PlayStation Now streaming service. Sony has just announced that PS Now will ship on "select Samsung smart TVs in the first half of 2015." Making the service available on different kinds of devices was always part of the plan, but this is the first time it's been made available on a non-Sony device.

PS Now will be available as an app on supported TVs—customers will need to bring their own DualShock 4 controllers, but otherwise playing on one of Samsung's TVs is the same as playing on a Sony device. This includes "the ability to earn in-game trophies, play games online with friends, and save your game progress in the cloud."

Samsung PlayStation? PS Now coming to Samsung smart TVs in 2015

If you want to use PlayStation Now, um, now, the service's open beta requires a PlayStation 3, 4, Vita, or supported TV. It will also run on a selection of Sony's own smart TVs. The full list of PS3 games available on the service is here, and the list will likely expand by the time these TVs launch (the last addition was made on December 16, just a few days ago).
