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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
