The Game World portal will be exclusive to LG's Cinema 3D Smart TV line-up, and will offer over 80 games, including a number of 3D titles.

The games will be able to be controlled by either LG’s Magic Remote or a short list of compatible gaming controllers: the Logitech F310, F510, F710 and Rumblepad2, and the wired version of the Microsoft Xbox 360 controller.

The portal's home page will be divided into four categories: Featured, Top Charts (the most popular paid and fee games), New and Genre (action, adventure, arcade, puzzle, RPG, shooter, simulation, sports and strategy).

Game World is available now for all 2012 LG LCD Smart TVs, with plasma models following.
