PlayStation Now Brings PS3 Games To Samsung Smart TV

Now you can play PS3 games on your Samsung Tvs without requiring the console

Sony and Samsung entered into an agreement whereby Samsung Smart TV customers can play PlayStation 3 titles directly via PlayStation Now without the requirement of a PS 3 console or any kind of Sony hardware.

When PlayStation Now was launched by Sony last year, initially it was limited to the PS4 only while offering a rental arrangement whereby gamers were given the opportunity to rent and stream their favorite PS3 games via internet. Now, for just a mere subscription fee of $19.99, you get experience a handful library of 125 titles. The best part is that now even those people can play PS Now titles who do not own a PS4, that is keeping in check that they have the compatible model of Samsung television. Sony’s website reads “Currently there are over 350 PS3 games available for individual rental and over 100 PS3 games available inside the subscription catalog.

Games span a variety of genres, from action to RPG and everything in-between, offering something for everyone.” It is worth noting that though the partnership between Samsung and Sony has allowed gamers to play PS Now games on selected Samsung Smart TVs without the need for any additional hardware, you do however need a DualShock 4 controller. Another aspect worth noting here is the fact that this service is currently limited to select Samsung Smart TV models being sold in United States and Canada only. Others will just have to wait for the graduate roll out progress in your respective region. The comprehensive list of all supported Samsung Smart TVs is as follows:

  • JS9500 JU750D
