LG is Bringing Stereo 3D Games to Its Cinema 3D Smart TVs

July 30th, 2012 · No Comments · General 3D News

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.

Stereoscopic 3D Trailers for Mobile 3D Games by Gameloft

July 18th, 2011 · 4 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

Mobile stereoscopic 3D gaming is still something quite new, but the interest is there and is growing partly due to the Nintendo’s 3DS portable console and partly due to the fact that having a 3D-capable smartphone may be more convenient than just a portable game console (all-in-one devices seem more attractive). And with 3D-capable smartphones such as LG’s Optimus 3D and HTC EVO 3D already available on the market it is no wonder that game developers are working in order to provide stereoscopic 3D games for these Android-based devices. Still the games that support stereoscopic 3D mode are not that much, but there are a couple of them available already from Gameloft and some of them are bundled with 3D smartphones. However promotional stereo 3D trailers for these games are as hard to find as promotional stereoscopic 3D movie trailers… did I say promotional here? Anyway, here are a few stereoscopic 3D trailers for games that are bundled with the LG Optimus 3D P920 and that I was able to find on the device I was testing. You can watch them on YouTube 3D or download them in MP4 format (Side by Side, half horizontal resolution), so that you can get an idea on what to expect from stereoscopic 3D gaming on a 3D-enabled smartphone…
