Sony has recently expanded its streaming service, Playstation Now, to work with not only their Playstation devices and Blu-Ray players, but also certain Samsung Smart Televisions as of yesterday. All players need to do is set up a subscription for Playstation Now, download the Playstation Now app onto their televisions, and have a PS4 controller ready to go.
Playstation Now subscribers will have access to many Playstation 3 games through a type of streamed game rental service. The service itself is still in its early stages, technically not yet out of beta, but already has a large selection of games to choose from, including some of the greatest hits in all Playstation history such as, the Uncharted series, the Infamous series, The Last of Us, and more.
The full games can be rented and streamed as much as you want, so long as you have a subscription which goes for $20 a month or $45 for 3 months, currently. Playstation Now will also support all types of online multiplayer play, trophy and stat tracking, and cloud saves that would be available on a normal Playstation console, through the application for the Smart TVs.
Pretty big deal for “console” gaming I’d say.
