Mike Quigley, EA Games Label vice president of global marketing, kicked off the event by walking the gathered press through the the games label were and reminding folks that it now includes folks like Pandemic and BioWare and partners like Valve and Harmonix.

Quigley said that EA Labels was a reminder that "sometimes you have to get back to basics" and make things all about the games again.

After showing off a three-minute montage video, Quigley called Bioware GM Ray Muzyka to the stage to talk up the PC adaptation of Mass Effect, which Muzyka called BioWare's "best game to date."
