Cloud Gaming from Gaikai to Stream on Samsung Smart TVs this Summer

Gaikai, the cloud-based gaming service, has formed a partnership with Samsung. The California-based company will be bringing its streaming services to Samsung Smart TVs this summer.

Samsung Cloud Gaming (SCG) will allow owners of any Samsung Smart TV in the 7000 series or up to use Gaikai’s service to play video games without a console or PC. Of course, you’ll have to already own a very expensive television that costs several times what a console does and pay for your Gaikai subscription. After that, you can enjoy Gaikai’s limited library of PC-only games, provided you have a rock-solid high speed internet connection capable of streaming the service at a resolution worthy of the massive TV you’ve just invested in.

That’s funny. A service of demos got a deal.

Hopefully, people will be playing full games on those TVs.
