Microsoft and LG Team Up For 3D Gaming

According to a Korean press release that Engadget got a hold of and translated, Microsoft has reportedly struck a deal with 3D television maker LG to jointly market Xbox 360 3D games with LG’s 3D TVs.

Bundles of the 55- and 47-inch LX9500 LED TV and an Xbox 360 will be released this June in South Korea. If successful, the bundle will spread throughout Asia, and eventually hit the U.S., although no timetable has been released.

The news isn’t surprising- Sony has already committed to updating the PlayStation 3’s firmware to support 3D gaming– but it is still good news for gamers.

The announcement did not say whether the 3D capabilities will be due to new hardware or a firmware update, but more details should be released in the coming weeks.
