LG Smart TV With Google TV Delivers the Best in Video Game Entertainment Direct From the Cloud, No Console Required

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- OnLive, the leader of on-demand cloud gaming, will be demonstrating its OnLive® Game Service, now fully integrated with the LG Smart TV with Google TV™ (G3 Series), at this year's CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Showing at the LVCC, Central Hall, LG booth (8204) from 8-11th January, OnLive combines the power of the Google TV platform with the speed of LG's dual-core chipset and a new user-friendly interface, making console-quality games instantly playable as part of the TV experience -- no discs, downloads or console required. The G3 Series is LG's first TV to make OnLive cloud gaming an integral part of an out-of-the-box offering and is currently available in the United States.

The growing OnLive catalog of over 300 titles includes games from more than 80 publishers, with everything from blockbuster new releases to classic franchises to family-friendly sports, racing and action-adventure games.

Unique to OnLive, an LG Google TV owner can play with (or against) friends on PCs, Macs and Android™ tablets. Users can even start a game on one device and continue playing on any other OnLive compatible device, with full saved game data intact in the cloud, whenever and wherever they want.

Games can be demoed free and purchased or rented a la carte. Players can also subscribe to the OnLive PlayPack for unlimited play of more than 200 games, with more titles added monthly. OnLive also offers free access to unique social features such as game spectating in the OnLive Arena, recording ten-second Brag Clip™ videos of players' best gaming moments, and sharing videos and Achievements with friends on OnLive and Facebook.

"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," said Georg Rasinski, Director of Home Entertainment Brand Management, LG Electronics USA. "By integrating cloud gaming into our powerful G3 series TVs, the entertainment possibilities for consumers are virtually limitless."

"Our partnership with LG demonstrates the exciting future for cloud gaming as an integrated offering for connected TVs," said Gary Lauder, OnLive Chairman. "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."
