Gaming and PCs go together like a salt and pepper and Toshiba wants television and PC gaming to go hand-in-hand. It appears that Toshiba is going for the all-inclusive package a-la Xbox One, maybe?

At CES 2014, Toshiba announced that they will bring cloud-based game streaming to your living room. They also went a step further by showcased its line of smart TVs that includes the streaming service GameNow featuring the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken.

GameNow maker Ubitus (a Taiwan-based company) partnered with Sega, Konami and Square Enix to offer cloud-based versions of games such as Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 and Dragon Quest X overseas. Various Capcom-published PC games such as Devil May Cry 4Dead Rising 2 and Resident Evil 5 will also be available. In addition to this, Warner Bros. games will include Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

The three cloud-connected Toshiba models:  L3400U, L5400U and L7400U, will arrive in North America later this year.
