As we approach the PS4 and Xbox One launch days, it's time for us to take a look at which games will interact with our smartphones and tablets.

This list isn't entirely comprehensive, as games such as Forza 5, Lococycle, and Kinect Sports Rivals will support SmartGlass, but the details as to how are scarce.

Regardless, we consider this a full list for now, so prepare your peepers and scroll on down.
