LG partners with Skylanders for Christmas

Smart TV vendor offers a Skylanders giveaway with selected TVs

Skylanders may be a popular property for video game consoles, but it's crossing over to Smart TVs with the help of an LG promotion.

LG is running a campaign in Australia where eligible Smart TV owners are able to receive a Skylanders: Battlegrounds game pack.

The game pack consists of three Skylanders figures, a Portal of Power pedestal, and a download code for the Skylanders: Battlegrounds game.

LG Electronics Australia PR head, Phillip Anderson, said the promotion is about leveraging the vendor’s Smart TV technology with one of the world’s most popular gaming franchises.

“Partnering with Activision and Skylanders Battlegrounds also provides us with the opportunity to delight our customers,” he said.

Although the Skylanders series has already existed in various forms since 2011, Anderson said the 2013 Christmas season was right for the partnership.

“We wanted to reward our customers with the opportunity to experience one of the world’s most popular gaming franchises on our Smart TVs,” he said. “What better time to have fun than at Christmas.”

Bigger gaming focus

With Activision having announced that the toys-to-life franchise has generated more than US$1.5 billion in revenue since 2011, Anderson is optimistic about the Skylanders game pack in Australia.

“Our expectation is to surprise and delight our Smart TV customers with this bonus offer while highlighting the Activision partnership,” he said.

At the same time, Anderson said the aim is to showcase the gaming capabilities of the LG Smart TV platform, particularly after the vendor launched its game portal, Game World, late last year.

The Skylanders: Battlegrounds game pack promotion runs from 11 November 2013 to 6 January 2014.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
