This week game makers and gamers alike have made their way to the Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3. So far, the big announcements have come from Xbox and Nintendo and it’s all about multi-screens. Microsoft announced Xbox SmartGlass, an app that will work with Windows 8, iPhone and Android devices to create a seamless experience between your Xbox and your mobile device. For example, you’ll be able to start a movie on your console and finish watching on your iPhone. SmartGlass will also enhance gameplay using the player’s mobile device.  Not to be outdone, Nintendo announced more than 20 games in development for its upcoming gaming system, the Wii U, including new Mario Bros and Batman games. It focused on how the GamePad, the new touch-screen, tablet-like controller, will create a multiscreen environment for players and change the way its games are played.  For the first time, you will also be able to access multiple streaming media apps like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube.
