While the most downloaded games in the world are created for cell phones and tablets, the most developed, designed for consoles or PC, begin to adapt to mobile format using smartphones or tablet as a second screen, and go beyond the official PlayStation application (PlayStation version) or Xbox (SmartGlass).
