LG Electronics, Nigeria’s leading consumer Electronics brand has taken a lead to set off the first ever CINEMA 3D Game Festival in Nigeria in order to demonstrate to the public the potential of its 3D products in the gaming environment. The event mirrored the energy and excitement from over 200 combatants which was the first phase of the competition which took place at DEEHall in Alausa, Lagos.
The 3D Games Festival tagged “LG 3D Wars” had participants from all over the country take part in the contest which would single out the LG 3D War Champion at the end of the competition. The grand winner goes home with an LG 55”inch Cinema Screen 3D TV. “A Similar event which took place in Korea some months back recorded a huge success and because the Nigerian market is very important to us, we decided to make Nigeria the next point of call” Said Mr. Dave Shin, General Manager, Home Entertainment division LG Electronics.
He further said “Hearing about how good our 3D TV, is one thing, seeing them in action is quite another, “LG is currently the only company offering a 3D experience on such a wide variety of products.
Visitors to LG’s booth played some of the newest 3D game titles from Blizzard and were able to experience 3D action on Microsoft’s XBOX Kinect. Utilizing LG’s proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology, all the games were displayed in thrilling 3D. LG’s lightweight and battery-free glasses worked on all CINEMA 3D products so thousands of spectators were able to watch the action with their own pair of free glasses which they received at the event.
