Samsung announces through a press release that it is working on Samsung Gaming Hub, a streaming gaming platform powered by Tizen and running on a Linux-based operating system (goes Game Rant). Apparently, the company wanted to jump ahead a day to the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) presentations this year to announce some of its most remarkable products and services that are to come in the future. As its name suggests, Gaming Hub is about a platform that brings together the main gaming services in streaming that are currently available; Its interface is similar to that of GOG Galaxy, which allows you to unify in a single launcher all our game libraries.
According to the aforementioned media, Gaming Hub aims to facilitate access to all the content available in some of the gaming services in the cloud such as NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia o Utomik, although it should be noted that more platforms will be added in the future. Samsung’s report notes that Gaming Hub will be available later this year on select Smart TV models from the same company, although we have already been able to take a look at its interface. On the one hand, we find a section that includes all the gaming platforms in streaming available, while we can also access some of the recently played titles through quick access without opening the application.
A curious detail is that, in addition to being able to easily access our game libraries in the cloud, it seems that we can add some of our home consoles, although at the moment it is not clear which consoles can be linked. As if that were not enough, Samsung emphasizes that the controllers can be paired with the Gaming Hub for an ideal gaming experience and can also be add some apps like YouTube. Of course, it is an initiative that those who are subscribed to various cloud gaming platforms will greatly appreciate, although we will have to wait a while to receive more information and details.
