LG adds 3D gaming to smart TVs

Five titles available and more on the way, according to LG

LG Electronics is adding 3D-enabled gaming to its smart TVs with the arrival of five titles in its app store, the company said on Sunday.

Owners of LG's Cinema 3D Smart TVs will be able to choose between Air Penguin, Frisbee Forever, Burn The City, Downhill Bowling 2 and Diversion with more games scheduled to be added in August, according to the consumer electronics maker.

Air Penguin was the top downloaded game app in the U.S. and eighteen other countries last year, according to LG. The success of the title has helped developer and publisher Gamevil surpass 120 million user downloads, the company said earlier this year.

Developed by Enterfly, Air Penguin debuted on the Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in April of last year and brought in US$1 million in less than a month, according to Gamevil.

Air Penguin and the other titles were picked specifically for their 3D playability, and have been optimized for LG's TVs. The remote works as a motion sensitive game controller, according to LG.

They will be available on LG's application and content store Smart World, but only in countries where the company offers paid services: U.K., Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Russia, U.S., Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines and South Korea.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
