Gives gamers the benefit of two different images on one TV in head-to-head gaming.

Thanks to a bit of smart engineering on LG’s part, a tweak in 3D style glasses has allowed gamers to see separate images on the same TV. Especially useful if you’re tired of sharing your big screen TV. When split-screen gaming, the technology gives gamers two full-screen 2D images.

The technology is currently only available on the Xbox, as demonstrated by Microsoft will be available to users of LG’s Cinema 3D range. The flagship model of this technology was featured at this years IFA technology conference in Germany and will retail from £1,799. Your gaming friend will have to get his own pair of glasses though. Each pair retails for roughly £10 for a pair.

The telegraph also reports that Sony has its own system in the pipeline which will give users a similar experience. Difference being, the Sony technology will be more expensive as it uses “active shutter” glasses where as the LG models use so called “passive” glasses. The Sony TV, a 24″ gaming model will be released later this year.
