With the magic of Google TV, OnLive and LG look to bring blockbuster gaming to TV screens everywhere.
With Google TV platform, the G3 Series’ speedy dual-core chipset and supposedly user-friendly interface, OnLive is looking to make console-quality games instantly accessible to TV viewers, without the need of a console or external disc media.
Considering they currently command a catalog of 300+ from more than 80 publishers, with every genre and market segment accounted for, it’s safe to say they mean business.
OnLive Chairman Gary Lauder states, “Our partnership with LG demonstrates the exciting future for cloud gaming as an integrated offering for connected TVs. OnLive’s proven gaming on-demand technology enables consumers to enjoy a vast catalog of console-quality games, with no additional hardware necessary beyond an OnLive controller and LG’s sophisticated and feature-rich Google TV.”
Georg Rasinski, Director of Home Entertainment Brand Management, LG Electronics USA said, “LG’s dual-core performance Google TVs, coupled with OnLive’s innovative games-on-demand service, makes access to the latest videogame entertainment quicker and easier than ever before. By integrating cloud gaming into our powerful G2 series TVs, the entertainment possibilities for consumers are virtually limitless.”
