Next generation LG with Google TV brings cloud gaming direct to TV

OnLive has announced that it will be launching its cloud gaming service on LGs next generation of smart TVs.

A day after it was announced that rival cloud gaming service Gaikai would be powering its service through Samsung TVs, OnLive's partnership will keep competition fierce as cloud gaming services jockey for position in a market that may soon see consoles as a thing of the past.

LGs new range of Google TV powered displays, coulpled with OnLive's cloud gaming service, eliminates the need for a dedicated console, powering AAA quality games directly through the TV set.

The service will incorporate all of Onlive's current features, and future software updates will make a number of games available in 3D.
