2K Games surpised us a couple of week ago when they decided to quietly release NBA 2K13 onto Android. Now they have gone a step further and have quietly released a companion application for NBA 2K13 called MyNBA2K. This companion app isn’t really for the Android version of the game but instead extends your NBA 2K13 experience on Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii U. In fact it can connect back to the game regardless of what console you’re playing it on.

One bane of Android gamers is when a game is released and their device isn’t supported. About 90% of the time, the game in question will actually run fine on any particular device in question, it is just that for whatever reason a developer has chosen not to support that particular device. At least not that the current time you are trying to download it.
