LittleBigPlanet Pre-Orders: $15 Off at Circuit City, $10 at Amazon

322w ago - Those who pre-order LittleBigPlanet online at CircuitCity.com will receive an instant $15 gift card credit towards their purchase.

Amazon.com is offering a similar deal, but is only offering a $10 gift card on pre-orders.

To quote: Circuit City Stores Inc. this week began offering a free $15 gift card with the pre-purchase of Sony Corp.'s LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation 3.

In the new promotion, buyers who purchase LittleBigPlanet at CircuitCity.com will receive an instant $15 gift card credit towards their purchase.

Concurrently, retailer Amazon.com is offering a $10 gift card with the pre-order purchase of the title.

LittleBigPlanet will allow players to custom-create characters, build levels, and share levels with others online. The title will also include both offline and online multiplayer modes for up to four.

Sony this month said that sales for the PS3 and the PSP are better than expected and may see a shortage at retail.

Microsoft unveils its Web vision

347w ago - Microsoft has lifted the lid on a new Web service called Live Mesh, designed to connect a multiplicity of devices and applications online. The service is seen by many as a key plank in the company's vision for the future of the Web.

Live Mesh pits Microsoft against companies like Amazon, Google and Salesforce.com which are already offering different varieties of so-called software-as-a-service systems. It comes as Microsoft is engaged in a bid to buy rival Yahoo and emphasises just how important the web has become to the firm.

"We may be seeing signs of a Microsoft that is newly focused," Jonathan Yarmis, a vice president and analyst at AMR Research, told Reuters news agency.

He added: "This is exciting because it has as much to do with who is doing it as what Microsoft is doing."

Microsoft has long been criticised for its unfocused efforts in the online space and for attempting to tie the use of Windows to the web.

While initially offered for Windows XP and Vista users, Microsoft has said Live Mesh will also be rolled out to Apple Macs...
