LG, Microsoft Team Up to Market 3D TVs & Games

By - Source: Tom's Hardware UK | B 4 comments

It looks like Microsoft has teamed up with LG to market 3D televisions alongside 3D games for the Xbox 360.

Engadget cites a translated Korean press release that seems to suggest that Microsoft and LG have struck up an agreement in which customers purchasing LG's 55/47LX9500 tellies will receive a bundle of 3D-capable games for the Xbox 360.

"Microsoft Korea is a worldwide leader in the consumer electronics sector," said Alan Bowman, Vice President of Microsoft's Asia Pacific Division, adding that the agreement provides a meaningful opportunity to improve the company and its ability to entertain customers. Bowman said the agreement 'plans to spread across the region.'

Neither Bowman (pictured above with an LG exec) nor the press release drop any hints as to whether or not we'll see new hardware but according to Engadget, the two companies will start selling the 3D bundles at the end of June.

    3d effects are not really new, they already excist some 70 years. Why nobody used them? Because nobody likes to wear those stupid glaces. unless the build-in 3d lenses finally reach the market will this stund soon be over.
