Following Gaikai’s announcement its games will be available on Samsung smart TVs, OnLive is now showing its cloud games on LG Google TV sets.
The games will be available on LG sets with Google TV (G2 Series). The service would make hundreds of 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 enjoy free instant access to OnLive social features such as worldwide massive spectating, the brand-new OnLive MultiView spectating capability, Brag Clip video recording and Facebook sharing. The ganes are on show at this year’s E3 event in Los Angeles.
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.”
“It’s always been our mission to make top-quality gaming accessible to everyone, everywhere,” said Steve Perlman, founder and CEO, OnLive. “OnLive adds no cost to LG Smart TVs, but delivers a full console-class experience. We’re excited to make on-demand top-tier gaming an integral part of the living room entertainment system on LG’s state-of-the-art TVs.”
