Samsung Reveals its Cloud-based Gaming Service

Samsung Cloud Gaming gives users quick access to popular console games, without the need to download, patch or install. The service boasts instant access, stating that "in under a minute" users will be playing their favorite games straight from one of the company's 2012 Smart TV. The service also allows gamers to try games for free, and only purchase titles they really like.

"Samsung is excited to deliver this revolutionary gaming experience that takes advantage of all the benefits of cloud-computing, all on the central screen of the home—Samsung Smart TV," said Kyung-shik Lee, Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "With Samsung Cloud Gaming, Samsung’s leadership in Smart Content and commitment to providing consumers with an innovative Home Entertainment experience is evident."

Consumers with a 2012 Samsung LED 7000 series TV and above as well as a solid internet connection will be eligible for the new cloud-based service. Samsung will begin accepting beta testers for the new service soon.
