Samsung to Certify Controllers Optimized for Game Streaming on Smart TVs

 

For context, Samsung Gaming Hub provides access to Xbox Game Pass, GeForce Now, Amazon Luna and other leading game streaming services right on compatible Samsung smart TVs. Music and video platforms like Spotify, Twitch and YouTube are also available through the Hub.

The first certified product is PDP’s new Replay Wireless Controller. It offers up to 40 hours of battery life and low-latency Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away. Special Samsung Gaming Hub and TV remote shortcut buttons are included.

The PDP Replay is now available for pre-order on PDP’s website priced at $59.99. Samsung says Amazon and Best Buy will sell the controller later as well.

Between the certification program and new hardware partnerships, it’s clear Samsung is investing heavily in its burgeoning game streaming platform. The goal is to provide the best possible experience for playing video games on the company’s market-leading smart TVs both now and in the future.
