Like last year’s CES, cloud gaming is kicking off the new year with a bang. The upcoming lineup of Smart TVs by Samsung will now include Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce.
According to the announcement by Samsung, some of the “select” TVs in its 2022 lineup will support apps for Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now for cloud gaming. This will be a part of Samsung’s new “Gaming Hub”, with Utomik as the cloud gaming service.
The Samsung Gaming Hub will empower players to discover and jump into the games they love faster through game streaming services. Players will have access to an extensive library of games through Samsung’s partnerships with industry leaders – NVIDIA GeForce Now, Stadia and Utomik – and that’s just the beginning.
Meanwhile, as per reports from The Verge, Samsung TVs’ “Gaming Hub” will support HDMI-connected consoles, with “passthrough” support for controls. This implies that these cloud services could use the same controller as your console. At launch, it appears that PlayStation and Xbox controllers will be supported.
Samsung’s new Smart TVs also support the display of NFTs and include an “Eco Remote” that charges using radio waves from your home internet router, which is quite impressive.
