Amazon and Ebay are battling for a greater Nintendo Wii Console Bundle deal. Which one would you take home?

Nintendo’s Wii console with the Mario Kart Wii Bundle has two different sales running on Ebay and Amazon. While Ebay offers the bundle on larger discount, Amazon’s deal comes with added perks. So no matter what sale you choose, there’s no looser in this battle.

The Wii Console Bundle comes with a Mario Kart Wii, a Nintendo Wii Wheel, Wii Remote Controller, Nunchuk controller, sensor bar, the Wii console and all of the required cable to get it running.

Meanwhile, Amazon is offering the Wii Console Bundle for $134.96 with a $20 Amazon credit. This offer could end any time, so if you’re in the market to purchase a Wii, better grab this deal. On the other hand, Ebay offers the console bundle for only $129.99 with free Economy Shipping.

Whichever deal your grab, no one’s a looser here by saving big!

Amazon, Planning to Launch Netflix-like Digital Books Service

A report from Wall Street Journal claims that Amazon is planning to launch a Netflix-style service for digital books.

According to a report from Wall Street Journal, Amazon is planning to launch a Netflix-like subscription service for digital books — much to be chagrin of some publishers.

Based on unnamed sources, Amazon is currently talking with several publishers regarding the said program — which would provide access to an online library in exchange for an unspecified annual fee. The sources also claim that the service would be available for Amazon Prime subscribers, and that the proposed library would feature primarily older works with monthly restrictions on the number of books a subscriber could read for free. Publishers would reportedly pocket a substantial fee for signing on to the program, even though some are reluctant to participate for fear that it might downgrade the value of the book business.

Apparently, it is still unclear whether any publishers agreed to participate on the said program.

In case this program will push through, what are your insights for Amazon’s digital books service?

While Netflix aims to be globally available, UK is not part of the list where the company will launch it services.

Film and television industry authority, Variety, reports that Netflix will arrive in UK next year: “Sources at leading European film distributors say as recently as last week Netflix reps confirmed plans to put roots down in both Spain and the United Kingdom in the first quarter of next year.”

But while the news seems unsurprising, Netflix omitted UK in its recent list of Latin American and Caribbean countries set for its global launch. However, the company declined tofurther comment on this. With just a couple of notable online streaming services in the country, Netflix might need more time to prepare and sign various licensing agreements. Moreover, they also need to deal with situation they never faced in North America.

But once Netflix UK becomes available, it will find itself in enviable position of having customers who already have compatible platforms. This can mean big competition with other streaming service providers like Amazon’s LoveFilm.
