Description Eric Smith 2012-07-11 18:54:20 UTC
According to the GKSession docs, initWithSessionID:displayName:sessionMode: allows nil for both the sessionID and displayName arguments.

If sessionID is nil, the session uses the application's bundle identifier to create a sessionID string.

If displayName is nil, the session uses the device name.
