After absorbing heavy beating from its arch rival Apple in the high-end smartphone segment the South Korean smartphone and electronics giant Samsung will try to turn the tide on its favor in the near year as it plunges into a territory where it is so familiar with – consumer electronics.
Samsung is expected to pull the cover of its innovative and groundbreaking Samsung Smart TV in the first half of next year. The first of its kind in the industry Samsung allows those with the cutting edge Smart TV to play Sony PlayStation games even without the PlayStation console.
In a press release whipped up by Samsung last Wednesday the company said that, PlayStation Now on Samsung Smart TV sets support all features of the service, such as piling-up trophies , playing games online with family and friends, and saving game progress on a cloud storage.
Shortly after the unveiling, the Smart TV will be available to the residents of Canada and the United States, and the consumers are required to procure Sony DualShock wireless controllers in order to play the PlayStation games.
The cost of the Smart TV is not yet disclosed yet, but the beta testing of the 2015 Smart TV model’s built-in support for PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles, the PlayStation Vita handheld, and PlayStation TV is now a work in progress.
Sony is set to flaunt its highly-anticipated PlayStation Now which can operate with Smart TVs at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, which will be staged at Las Vegas from January 6 to 9 next year.
