Xbox Companion for WP7 gives you yet another remote

You've got a controller. A Kinect. Maybe even an Xbox Universal Media Remote Control. Still, you want greedy, greedy gamer.

Luckily, those with a WP7 device will soon be able to sate their control fetish with the upcoming 'Xbox Companion' app.

The Windows Phone Team just announced the upcoming app, which will both access the Xbox Live Marketplace and act as a remote. The Companion will allow you to navigate your console and control video playback directly from your handset. At the moment, the Companion is currently in beta stages but will soon be released as a free download.
