Kicking off the EA press conference at E3 was PopCap Games' Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

Ever since the Super Nintendo Entertainment system, every Nintendo console has had a Mario Kart game – almost like some sort of rite of passage.

After creating Halo Bungie didn't just sit around twiddling their thumbs wondering what to do next. Well, they might have done that for a little bit - but they are bringing us a new Destiny. You see what I did there? I plugged the game title into that line, in case you didn't notice.

Well, this certainly isn't going to win Microsoft any praise from consumers already frustrated at the console maker for the Xbox One's constant internet connection requirement.
