Samsung to build Valve’s Stream Link technology into future Smart TVs

It has been revealed today that Samsung will integrate Valve’s Steam Link technology into future generations of its Smart TVs. The announcement was made during the Steam Dev Days conference in Seattle, Washington and reported by Steam Spy on Twitter.

For those unaware, Steam Link allows a PC gamer to beam games from their powerful gaming computers to low-powered devices. It works in a similar way to Xbox’s Game Streaming functionality, enabling users to open a game on their PC and wirelessly play it in the living room on their TV.

Users will, however, need a controller or mouse and keyboard combo to actually take advantage of the functionality. It’s perfectively feasible that Samsung could produce a dedicated bundle for compatible TVs that offers of a Valve Steam Controller for a reduced price, though.
