Each year the big players in consumer electronics gather in Las Vegas to show to the world what they will be offering in the coming year, and next year will be no different. We have recently learned of the LG 2013 TV lineup and it’s clear to see that the Korean TV maker is focusing on Google with OnLive. In the lineup there are the models GA7900 and GA6400 and we’re being told that these will come in a range of sizes that the consumer will get far more from these TVs when compared to what their rivals have to offer.
LG know that in order to give their customers a far better media experience they need to keep them compelled, and one way to achieve this is by allowing them to play games without the need for third-party devices. LG feel that the best way to achieve this is by incorporating OnLive. The app is pre-installed into the new range of TVs and while it’s not going to make your TV compete with the top games consoles on the market, it will help transform your TV into a more than adequate gaming device.
There’s no need for a hard drive to be installed because all the games are Cloud based, so all you need to do is stream your chosen game from OnLive servers. Google will also play a major part in these TVs to make using them a far simpler experience thanks to an improved voice search functionality, which makes it much easier when searching through the 100,000 or so movies and TV shows. We’re not certain what the prices will be and when these new TVs will be released, but we’ll know more in a coupe of weeks, and hopefully in that time OnLive will update their games catalog to include some of the more later releases.
Over the years Samsung has always maintained an edge over their design and overall image quality, but the LG GA7900 and GA6400 release will change all that because the design of these models is not only sleek and sexy, but also breathless as well with its borderless display. If LG’s aim was to make their televisions standout during CES 2013, then this latest news release shows that they look set to achieve this goal.
