When it was first announced, Microsoft promised that the Xbox One would be controlled in three ways. One was by a controller, second was by the Kinect and the third was through a completely revised version of Xbox SmartGlass. Today, in anticipation of the release of the Xbox One on Friday, Microsoft has released one part of that control system, the Xbox One SmartGlass app.

The new SmartGlass app allows for secondary Xbox One control and new features in games that support it, like the launch title Dead Rising 3 or the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V. Curiously, Microsoft chose not to update the already existing Xbox Smartglass app, and instead released the updated SmartGlass for Xbox One as a completely seperate app. So if you already have SmartGlass installed on your mobile device or PC, you’ll need to go searching for the new version.

The Xbox One SmartGlass app is free to download on your iOS, Android or Windows device right now. Just search for the Xbox One SmartGlass app in your respective digital marketplace.

Between the Lines, a show known for tackling topics inspired from great literature, has discussed a video game for the first time ever.  In this video, host Barry Kirbrick sits down with Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckman to talk about the deeper philosophical meanings present in this year’s PS3 hit The Last of Us.

As a person who was an English Major in College, I enjoy a great debate over a story, and its fantastic to see one taking place over a video game.

The Last of Us is out now exclusive to the PS3.
