Samsung Electronics and Gaikai, a leading video game streaming company, this week unveiled a new cloud-based gaming service called “Samsung Cloud Gaming” that will be powered by Gaikai and will stream a mix of family-friendly and AAA video games directly to owners of Samsung LED 7000-series (2012 models) and up Smart TVs in the U.S.

"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. With Samsung cloud gaming, Samsung’s leadership in smart content and commitment to providing consumers with an innovative home entertainment experience is evident," said Kyung-shik Lee, vice president of visual display business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung Cloud Gaming gives Smart TV users instant access to some of the video game industry’s biggest titles, without any need to download, install or patch/update games. In under a minute, consumers can find and start playing some of the most popular game titles on the market. Samsung will soon begin accepting sign-ups for the beta test of its cloud gaming service on Smart TVs in the United States.

Cloud-based gaming provides consumers with access to high-performance games on Samsung Smart TVs without the need or challenge of using a console or additional devices. This service will demonstrate how the concept of “Smart TV’s” becomes smarter as Samsung enables new capabilities like this. Consumers who own a 2012 Samsung LED 7000-series and up with a good Internet connection will have access to “Samsung cloud gaming” directly through Samsung’s Smart Hub. Consumers will be able to try the games for free and only pay for games they fall in love with, making it a very gamer-friendly service.

“We could not be more thrilled to be working with Samsung, the world’s leader in consumer electronics. Samsung cloud gaming will greatly expand the reach of the best games our industry can provide, then make them just as accessible as movies, TV shows and music,” said David Perry, chief executive officer of Gaikai.

Gaikai will showcase Samsung Cloud Gaming with gamepad support running on Samsung Smart TV’s at E3 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
