Something big is coming… Imagine PC, imagine phone, imagine game console… Image all of them playing same game… Imagine player with phone playing versus player on console or player on PC… Imagine player starting the game in public transport at the way home and resuming it after arriving home on the console… Imagine that everything is possible… Just imagine… and enjoy the photo meanwhile :) Stay tuned for more to come! Enjoy, Alex
