In an Australian first LG extends gaming to the lounge room in 3D
Sydney, September 3rd, 2012– LG Electronics Australia (LG), a global leader in consumer electronics, has today announced the local availability of 3D-enabled games for its 2012 CINEMA 3D Smart TV’s. In an industry first, LG will bring games that were previously available on smartphones, tablets and only playable in 2D to the big screen in 3D.
Handpicked specifically for their 3D playability, these fun, family-friendly games have been optimised for LG's CINEMA 3D Smart TV platform. During the month of September, LG will launch a series of new 3D games to the 2012 Smart TV platform. Currently, there are five games available, these titles include; Air Penguin, Downhill Bowling 2, Frisbee Forever, Burn the City and Diversion.
"We are excited to be able to bring 3D gaming to LG Smart TVs in Australia for the first time so family members can enjoy the immersive 3D fun together," said Brad Reed, Senior Marketing Manager – Content and Services. "With the arrival of these games developed for LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV, we are fulfilling our commitment in showcasing the potential of Smart TV as a genuine 3D gaming platform. LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV owners will be amazed as they become completely engrossed in the large screen and 3D gaming environments of their favourite games, and at how easy it is to be in control with the Magic Remote."*
The games are delivered in 2D, and then by pressing the 3D button on the Magic Remote the game has the ability to be viewed and played in 3D. The ergonomic Magic Remote* transforms to a motion-sensitive game controller, intuitively easy-to-use for both kids and adults alike. Thanks to LG’s Passive 3D technology, users can enjoy LG's growing library of 3D games with comfortable, lightweight, battery-free 3D glasses.
The 3D games are located in the LG SmartWorld (LG Apps) section on all 2012 LG CINEMA SMART TVs. The games will be automatically updated onto the TV units as they become available, with the five games mentioned already available.
