LG Electronics has announced that it is making available the first stereoscopic 3D games for the users of LG Cinema 3D Smart TVs, games that you can directly download and play in stereo 3D mode on your TV set without the need of a console or computer. LG is bringing some popular games that were already made available in 2D for smartphones and tablets such as Air Penguin, which was the top downloaded game app in the U.S. and eighteen other countries last year, Frisbee Forever, Burn The City, Downhill Bowling 2 and Diversion from Unity Technology. These games were apparently handpicked specifically for their stereo 3D playability, their fun factor and they should be offering a nice family-friendly experience in front of the TV set as well.
The new selection of stereo 3D games will be available on LG Smart World in the 13 countries where LG Smart TV offers paid services: the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Russia, USA, Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines and Korea. Initially five games should be launched today, July 30 with additional games expected to be available in August.
Now, the big question is if this will make a difference for anyone? Certainly not much for gamers that want to play a totally different kind of games in stereoscopic 3D mode on their TV sets, regardless if it is with a console or a PC. On the other hand if you are a casual user and have some time to spend and there is nothing interesting in 3D currently being broadcasted, then you might want to check them out if they are available for free. If LG however decides to charge for these games, then the interest may actually turn to be quite low.
