Play the latest Xbox games in all their glory without owning a console or additional hardware? For buyers of new Samsung TVs, that dream is about to come true!
Manufacturer Samsung announced some time ago that it wants to make its current top televisions fit for streaming games. Users of the latest TV models should have access to various game streaming services via a gaming hub integrated into the Smart TV interface. So far, the South Koreans have promised cooperation with Google Stadia, Nvidia GeForce Now and Utomik for this purpose. Now the company has announced another collaboration that catapults the value of the gaming hub to a whole new level.
More than 100 games via Xbox Game Pass
According to the official press release, in addition to the services already mentioned, the content of the Xbox Game Pass will be available on the manufacturer’s televisions in the future. This means that if you take out a subscription with Microsoft, you can use the integrated Xbox app to access over 100 Xbox games, some of which are cutting-edge, and play them without owning an expensive and hard-to-get Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. Samsung’s gaming hub will be available on the latest models in the Neo QLED 8K and 4K series and all QLED TVs from the BU8000 series onwards from June 30, 2022. Also, the 2022 smart monitor series offers access to the feature.
Samsung promises top gaming
According to Samsung, it has optimized all supported televisions and monitors for use as a toy box and promises high gaming performance, low latency times and sharp, smooth movement and game processes. Both Samsung and Microsoft emphasize the importance of this cooperation for the respective brand. With this step, the Xbox manufacturer in particular is getting closer to its goal, which was declared some time ago, to increasingly offer Xbox gaming as a cloud service independent of special hardware. It is already possible to stream Xbox games to smartphones and PCs via Xbox Cloud Gaming and Game Pass, with more devices to follow.
