The best way to play video games these days is to get yourself a dedicated PC or gaming console like the PS5 or Xbox Series S/X and hook it up on a nice TV.

However, cloud gaming services are hoping to offer an alternative.

Samsung, in particular, wants to change how gamers play with the Samsung Gaming Hub.

According to Samsung, the tech company plans to launch the service at an undetermined date this year.

At the moment, Samsung has confirmed its partnerships with GeForce Now, Google Stadia, and Utomik.

The latter is an indie subscription service that focuses on small-time titles such as those published by Raw Fury and THQ Nordic.

But, Samsung clarifies that it is working on partnering with other cloud streaming services.

One of the more interesting features of the platform is the marketplace. Players can use this to buy games that they can then launch on their TVs.

We like the idea behind the Samsung Gaming Hub, but we're not sold just yet.

In an ideal world, Samsung can get both Microsoft (Xbox Game Pass) and PlayStation (PSNow) on board.

If this happens, Samsung Gaming Hub might just become the go-to all-in-one cloud gaming solution for gamers all across the world.
