OnLive cloud gaming for LG Smart TVs

June 6, 2012

Batman: Arkham City available on OnLive

OnLive, a specialist in 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) this week.

Capitalising 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 have access to free instant access to exclusive OnLive social features such as worldwide massive spectating, the new OnLive MultiView spectating capability, Brag Clip™ video recording and Facebook sharing.

Games can be purchased a la carte, or players can subscribe to OnLive’s PlayPack subscription service for unlimited on-demand play of more than 220 games, with more titles added weekly. When players are away from their OnLive LG TV, all of their OnLive games are available—with full game saves and achievements—on almost any PC or Mac, tablet or smart phone wherever there is broadband, whether in a different room in the house, or in a different country in the world.

In addition to instant-action gameplay, an OnLive Game Service account enables users to watch millions of gamers from around the world play live in the massive spectating Arena, voice chat with other players and spectators, capture Brag Clip videos of their best and worst gameplay and share their gaming exploits with friends on Facebook.

“LG Google TV’s superior performance, coupled with OnLive’s innovative games-on-demand service, unleashes powerful new entertainment possibilities for gaming enthusiasts,” said Georg Rasinski, Director of Home Entertainment Brand Management, LG Electronics USA. “Cloud gaming complements the virtually limitless content options already available through our exciting G2 series TVs.”
