Korea’s LG adds cloud gaming for IPTV subs

South Korean service provider LG is taking the plunge into cloud gaming services after partnering up with Taiwanese firm Ubitus, enabling it to deliver classic games to its 500,000 IPTV subscribers.

The service will enable LG to deliver console-quality games on-demand – including ‘Super Street Fighter’, ‘Devil May Cry’, ‘Resident Evil’, and ‘Backyard Sports’ – and the number of users is expected to hit 1mn by the end of the year.

Cloud gaming is being heralded by some as the next key value-added service for service providers: Orange France will be launching a similar service later this month, and a number of major US operators are believed to be preparing for commercial launch next year.
