OnLive Builds Console-Quality Gaming Into LG Google TVs, No Console
Required 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 --  OnLive, the leader of
on-demand cloud gaming, announced that its OnLive(R) Game Service has
just been integrated into the LG Smart TV with Google(TM) TV (G2
Series), making console-quality games instantly playable as part of
the TV experience. The OnLive app is the first commercial deployment
of instant-response cloud gaming in a TV with no console necessary.
OnLive offers something that consoles can't: the ability to continue
playing your saved games on the go, on nearly any PC or Mac, and many
Android(TM) tablets.  
The OnLive app was delivered over the air today to the LG G2 Series
TVs that are already in homes and will be preinstalled on future LG
Google TVs. With the OnLive Wireless Controller (available at
onlive.com/controller), LG G2 TV owners in the United States can go
to the Premium Apps menu on their TVs and play hundreds of video
games on demand. The OnLive catalog 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.  
Uniquely, OnLive makes console-quality gaming truly portable and
accessible across multiple platforms. With a single purchase, OnLive
games can be played on any OnLive-compatible device -- on PC, Mac,
many Android tablets, TVs with the OnLive Game System, and now LG G2
TVs -- anywhere there is broadband. Users can start a game on one
device and continue playing on any other device, with full saved game
data intact in the cloud, whenever and wherever they want. OnLive
even enables cross-platform multiplayer gaming, so that an LG G2 TV
owner will be able to play with (or against) friends on PCs, Macs and
tablets.  
Games can be demoed free and purchased or rented a la carte, or
players can 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(TM) videos of
players' best gaming moments, and sharing videos and Achievements
with friends on OnLive and Facebook. 
"We are proud to be working with OnLive to deliver an incredible home
entertainment experience with a full range of interactive viewing and
gaming possibilities on LG G2 Series TVs," said Georg Rasinski,
Director of Home Entertainment Brand Management, LG Electronics USA.
"OnLive's premium-quality gaming service offers customers a great
opportunity to test the dual-core performance of our G2 Series TVs.
We think customers will be very impressed." 
"Our partnership with LG has enabled us to take an important step
forward in making high-end gaming accessible to everyone, across a
variety of consumer electronic devices," said Gary Lauder, OnLive
Chairman. "Gamers can now enjoy hundreds of amazing console-quality
games with no new hardware necessary beyond an OnLive controller and
LG's fast and intuitive Google TV." 
Combining the power of the Google TV platform with the speed of LG's
L9 dual-core chipset and a user-friendly interface, the G2 Series is
LG's first TV to make OnLive cloud gaming an integral part of the
consumer experience. To find out more about OnLive or to purchase a
