|Overview:||Creating meaningful companion apps is becoming increasingly important to win the battle for player time inside (and beyond) the living room. AAA console players expect AAA quality when it comes to their favorite brands, no matter what device they are playing on, so merely shipping a companion app that is seen as a marketing gimmick is not an option.
