One thing about Sony is that they aren't afraid to partner up with their competitors, especially if it means getting PlayStation Now in more homes. They just announced that they will be teaming up with Samsung to bake the PlayStation game-streaming service into rival electronics giant smart TV's starting next year.
Sony claimed that atleast some 200 Playstation 3 games will be available to stream. It will provide an easier way to play your games on those huge 4K TV's. They also went on to say that the service will run at full functionality which basically means that things like trophies, online multiplayer and cloud-saves for game-progress.
Sound Familiar? Well this is because this service is already there but works only on Bravia TV's and obviously the PlayStation console itself.
Most likely the best part is that all you will need is one of Sony's DualShock 4 gamepads to control the action.
This is quite a big deal for Sony because now Samsungs displays are going to be the first non-Sony device where PlayStation Now will be available.
This is also an advantage because now the South Korean company practically owns the TV market.
Samsung does not have a gaming console of their own and usually push games like Angry Birds or Monoply to promote built in gaming. So you could say would be a plus point for Samsung. A Win-Win situation.
