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

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.

Check out the release here.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but you only get the games and no console?
    What If I don't have a Xbox 360?
    Well, I guess thats what Ebay is for.

    powerful consoles? Hmm... Isn't gaming consoles holding everything back? Considering PC technology doubles every 2 years and they are 6 years old. In computer years consoles would be deemed ancient.

    How about a 50" 3D Panasonic plasma with a PS3 built right into it?
    That's something I'd consider.
