Samsung has announced that starting next week, it will roll out support for its gaming hub on older TVs. That means owners of 2021 Samsung smart TVs will soon have access to a variety of cloud gaming services, including Xbox Cloud and Amazon Luna.
Samsung announced the new platform earlier this year. Its conceit is that users can play games through cloud gaming services, no console required. So far, the service has Xbox Cloud Gaming, Amazon Luna, Utomik, and Nvidia’s GeForce Now.
When the platform first launched, it was only available on certain 2022 Samsung screens. Now, the company is expanding to some 2021 models as well. Microsoft also announced today that it’s adding rumble support to controllers for playing games through Game Center.
One of the services on Samsung’s Game Hub is Stadia, which Google has shut down (officially in January), so the app will no longer be available on Gaming Hub. However, users won’t be out of service for long, as Antstream Arcade and Blacknut Cloud Gaming will launch on the Hub sometime in 2023.
