After announcing it last October during its SDC21 keynote presentation, Samsung has finally announced its new cloud gaming platform for TVs.
As part of its CES 2022 announcements, Samsung's Gaming Hub is a new platform service aimed at the ability to play video games on your TV without a game console or gaming PC. Samsung confirmed that Nvidia's GeForce Now, Google Stadia, and Utomik will serve as launch partners for the Gaming Hub, with all three services powered by Tizen, Samsung's Linux-based mobile operating system with more services expected to arrive in the future.
The announcement of the Samsung Gaming Hub serves as some competition to Microsoft, which announced last year that its Xbox division is moving beyond consoles to bring the Xbox ecosystem and experience onto smart TVs and streaming sticks. While Samsung has not named Xbox as a partner for the Gaming Hub, it will be interesting to see if both parties will partner on Samsung's new gaming endeavor.
Samsung Gaming Hub is slated to release later this year on select 2022 smart TV made by the tech giant.
