While the Consumer Electronics Show isn’t really a place for major gaming news, there is some stuff that sprinkles its way onto the show floor. And this year, Samsung appears to be taking hold.
In time for the launch of this year’s somewhat limited showcase, the company announced the Samsung Gaming Hub, which will launch on its Smart TV models and other services, including NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Google Stadia, sometime later this year.
With various deals in place, the Hub will act as a go-to place for many games, including titles from Ubisoft. While a full game list isn’t available, a large library is expected – perhaps the biggest yet for an online streaming service.
“Our Samsung Smart TVs provide the ultimate entertainment destination for everyone across generations, interests, and viewing preferences,” said Won-Jin Lee, Corporate President at Samsung Electronics. “We know that gaming continues to increase in popularity for our customers and we have bridged the gap between our Smart TV leadership and advanced gaming software to create an easier way for people to enjoy the games they love, faster. We developed the Samsung Gaming Hub with our incredible content partners to benefit all gamers, and we plan to continue our collaboration to grow the ecosystem.”
The whole thing runs on the Tizen-powered hardware system, and, thus far, it sounds like things are going according to plan for Samsung. But we don’t have a confirmed release date just yet, so we’ll have to see what comes from it.
Look for more details on the Hub soon!
