Cloud-solutions firm Ubitus and television manufacturer LG are partnering for a new cloud-gaming service that will beam directly to LG’s Smart TVs in Korea.
The two companies announced C-games today that essentially turns certain LG TV models into gaming consoles. Without discs or downloads, gamers can quickly access titles like Street Fighter X Tekken and Lego Batman 2.
According to LG and Ubitus, C-games has low latency, full HD graphics, and game support from Korean publishers like Nexon and Neowiz.
