Plants vs. Zombies infecting Xbox 360 in September

Plants vs. Zombies is shambling to the Xbox 360 this September

After spreading from computers to Apple's portable devices, Plants vs. Zombies is shambling to the Xbox 360 this September with new modes and a unique retail configuration. Read on for more details regarding both.

Eschewing a PlayStation Network and WiiWare release for the time being, Plants vs. Zombies is due out on the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live Arcade for US$15. Players who haven't purchased any of PopCap's XBLA wares may want to wait to visit their local retailer, as a $20 retail configuration due later in the year will pack in US$35 worth of games (PvZ, Peggle, and Zuma).

Regardless of where customers find their Plants vs. Zombies fix, all purchasers of the Xbox 360 version will be welcomed to the war with a suite of new features. Cooperative and versus multiplayer modes and a handful of new minigames will serve as exclusive content when the game debuts on consoles. For now, we have nothing in the way of new screens, video, or impressions of the game, but those will likely rise to life in the coming weeks before PvZ comes to Xbox Live.

For now, you can play a trial version of the game for free on Popcap's official site.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
