PlayStation Home-esque Experience Coming to XBox Live? 300°
October 9, 2009 // 8:43 pm - Today Joystiq (linked above) received some interesting info from a reader, who claimed to have taken part in a survey run by Microsoft which featured avatars playing classic arcade games in a virtual arcade setting.

If that sounds familiar, you probably played PlayStation Home before.

To quote: If a consumer survey sent over to us by a tipster is to be believed, Microsoft is looking to bring a virtual Avatar arcade to the Xbox 360. Some of the potential names listed in the survey are "Game Room," "RetroCade," "Tower of ROM," and "Classics LIVE." Yeah, we're partial to...

Microsoft XBox 360 Live Advertisement Using LittleBigPlanet Tune 500°
August 6, 2009 // 1:56 pm - Many people have associated LittleBigPlanet with the song Get it Together by the Go! Team.

However, it seems Microsoft has decided to begin using this tune in a recent advertisement for their Xbox 360 too.

To quote: This is the LittleBigPlanet theme they're running over their suspiciously similar marketing campaign.

Now to be honest, this song is by The Go Team and was licensed by Sony for use in LittleBigPlanet. However, the song feels like it's been accepted as the spiritual soundtrack for LittleBigPlanet. And Microsoft have to be aware of that.
