Some news for both OnLive and Gaikai, the two competing cloud gaming services, today... Samsung announced it will be partnering with Gaikai to deliver streaming games on its Smart TVs, meanwhile LG is showing off OnLive for its Smart TVs with Google TV at the E3 expo.

Here's what Samsung said:
Samsung Cloud Gaming will open millions of consumers to an exciting new service that makes video games playable through Samsung Smart TVs. Connected via the Internet, Samsung Cloud Gaming utilizes Gaikai's cloud-based streaming technology to deliver video games instantaneously to game players without the hassle of long download times, unsightly hardware or untidy wiring.

Samsung will soon begin accepting signups for the beta of Samsung Cloud Gaming for Samsung Smart TVs in the United States.

And here's what LG/OnLive said:
OnLive, Inc., the pioneer of on-demand cloud gaming, is demonstrating the OnLive® Game Service on the next-generation LG Smart TV with Google TV (G2 Series) from LG Electronics at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) here this week.

Capitalizing on the power of LG’s L9 dual-core processor, the service would make hundreds of top-tier video games from more than 60 publishers playable on-demand, without a console or PC. When the service becomes available, LG G2 TV owners will also enjoy free instant access to exclusive OnLive social features such as worldwide massive spectating, the brand-new OnLive MultiView spectating capability, Brag Clip™ video recording and Facebook sharing.

It's definitely going to get really interesting in the game space soon... there have been rumors that Sony may buddy up with one of these two as well, which could lead to PlayStation-based cloud gaming on its TVs.
