The lights are on
Second screen apps are becoming more prevalent, with no sign of slowing down any time soon. Need for Speed: Rivals is the latest title to get one of the companions.The Need for Speed Network app serves a number of functions. It can be used to manage stats and queue up events for later play while away from your console.
Our TakeI like the idea of having a second-screen app as a map that doesn't require any interaction. Juggling a controller and a phone or tablet is cumbersome. It seems like the Need for Speed Network app is a full-featured experience that enhances the game during play and away from home. I'm eager to get it loaded up and test it for myself.
