One big new feature announced by Microsoft today is Xbox SmartGlass which is an app that turns a smartphone or tablet into a second screen to communicate with the Xbox 360. Essentially it’s what the Wii U is doing with a dedicated controller however Microsoft is taking advantage of devices that far more people have available to them already.

This opens up a number of possibilities for sports titles to take advantage of and Madden NFL 13 was on display at the press conference with a demonstration of plays being selected and even drawn up right on a device and then sent to game.
