Samsung has announced today that it’s going to bring an extensive lineup of over 400 streaming games and 100 downloadable games to its 2016 smart TVs. It promises that consumers will be able to experience the “most realistic gaming environments” available on TV, not least due to the great picture quality and large screen sizes offered by its TV lineup.
As is the case with serveral products that have been announced over the past few days, Samsung is going to showcase its upgraded game service at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016. Its upcoming lineup of smart TVs will allow consumers to download and stream games on the TV set itself.
PlayStation Now, Sony’s game streaming service, arrived on select Samsung smart TVs earlier this year and it will also be available on the 2016 lineup. Some of the titles that consumers will be able to play include Assassin’s Creed III, Batman: Arkham Origins and The LEGO Movie Videogame.
Samsung promises that the PlayStation Now offerings will also be improved in the coming year, the service is already available in the United States and Canada offering close to 300 titles. It’s going to get titles like BioShock 2, Borderlands 2, The Last of Us: Left Behind and much more in 2016.
“The new Smart TV gaming service is just one feature of a TV that offers all-round entertainment. Our game offering will continue to expand, as Samsung partners with publishers of popular games,” says Youngchan Kim, vice president of the visual display business at Samsung.
