The new year is shaping up to be a great one for video gamers.

Sony and Samsung just struck a deal that will bring Sony's PlayStation Now streaming service to select Samsung Smart TVs in 2015, The Verge reported. The deal was made official Wednesday morning after the release of a joint statement.

PlayStation Now enables users to play video games from Sony's previous flagship gaming console, the PlayStation 3, on its current flagship model, the PlayStation 4. With this deal, Sony will be able to offer its video game-streaming service to consumers without forcing them to buy the console.

The first demonstrations of PlayStation Now on Samsung Smart TVs will be held at next month's Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, The Verge reported.

Sony Computer Entertainment's Executive Vice President Masayasu Ito said in a statement that this partnership with Samsung is essential, as the company can now "reach a broader audience of consumers who may not own a PlayStation console."
