PlayStation Now made its debut at CES 2014, slowly rolling out over the months that followed on numerous Sony platforms, including both in-production PlayStation consoles, the PS Vita, PlayStation TV, and select Bravia TVs. The Samsung debut of PS Now, which offers streaming gameplay of select PlayStation 3 title (with more to come in time), marks the first time the service will be available on a non-Sony platform.
“Since we first introduced PlayStation Now at CES 2014, our vision has been to open the world of PlayStation to the masses by offering the service on the devices they use every day,” Sony Computer Entertainment’s Masayasu Ito said in the announcement. “Partnering with Samsung is a key step toward realizing this vision, as we can reach a broader audience of consumers who may not own a PlayStation console to show them why gaming with PlayStation is such a unique and amazing experience.”
PlayStation Now continues to grow, with more than 150 PS3 games currently available to stream through the service (full list here). While there’s no timetable, Sony has noted in the past that long-term plans include bringing games from other platforms to PS Now, spanning the length of the PlayStation brand’s history.
