Max launches on Netflix for PS3 today

Netflix has officially launched "Max" on the PS3 version of its app. According to the company, Max is a new experience "that helps you find something great to watch in a fun, conversational way." By playing along with a few games, the service will recommend something for you to watch. However, if you find yourself unimpressed by Max, or don't want a robot telling you what to do, Netflix promises that Max's prominence on the dashboard will diminish over time. (Industry, PS3)

Mighty Max was f*ckin awesome!
The 90s were so good.

Not sure how I feel about this. Seems kinda stupid.

I got an idea how about concentrating on more new movies instead.

I would rather Netflix add some REAL categorical menus that allow me to see all of the movies and not just 75 random ones in a couple of random "related" categories to movies I've watched.

So when is this coming out? It says yesterday but I have yet to see it.

Wait, I remember using Max before on PS3. I used it about a year ago on my PS3. Is this really new? I liked the way it used to be, you just pressed square to access max.

I like how he concludes with "We know Max isn't for everyone, but we hope you use it.". It's nice to know they know it's hokey and kind of stupid, but what the hell, it can't hurt.
What I want is to be able to pick a show based on show length. So I can say, "I want an action-drama tv show that is an hour long." Or, I'm looking for a comedy movie no longer than 90 minutes. That's what would help me out the most.

People love options.

What the hell this is on by default?

Did anyone else, by just watching the video find this annoying as hell?

Max Headroom! is BACK!

Netflix on PS3 is so much better than on Xbox 360.

Max is an interesting addition. I look forwards to seeing what he suggests for me.
theDECAY  +   376d ago
Is there really that much of a difference, or are you just trying to flame?
BattleTorn  +   376d ago
Nah, I'm a big xbox fan. The layouts are actually different.

I'm always excited to see software updated with new features. It doesn't matter if the features are good or bad, it matters because it shows that the company or developers are still active at maintaining and improving their product. The leap of faith companies take is hoping that they will receive just enough good publicity to keep them in good spirits with the loving consumers.

From the video "Max" reminds me very much of jellyvision's YOU DON'T KNOW JACK! series of quiz games.

Oops, just went to the site to read the article after I wrote this and it IS the people who made YDKJ!

jellyvision was the original developer and creator of the game, I knever knew that another dev took over from them.

I would rather just have the ability to put shows on a 'to watch' list. I always forget what movies i see on there and by the time I get back to them they are often gone.
