The best bits from The Insider article from issue 101 of PSM3.
"Apparently they'll let you stream movies through the PS3 - for a fee of course." Free? How will that manage to do that, I cant see to many studios being keen on the idea. Maybe they intend to run adverts with the movies or something. Free? Can't see it. ~side-note~ nice cover.
read again. it says fee and not free, but i love the netflix idea
Hilarious, sorry guys, completely missed that o_O obviously. Cheers Sword! Have a bubble :)
As long as it's just linked to your current Netflix account, I'm fine by that. We can already use "Watch It Now" to stream movies to your computer, and that's at no extra charge to your membership. You get 1 hour of viewing time per month for each dollar you pay in membership (so if you're paying $17/month, then you can watch 17 hours of video). Thus far, I've yet to have any quality issues (all looks dvd-like to me), even when watching at peak times of bandwidth use, so I know they can handle the load. I'd be excited about this for no other reason than A: I already love Netflix, and B: I'd be able to view Watch It NOw movies through my tv instead of my PC monitor.
I have/love Netflix now for Blu-ray movies but don't watch any of the instant viewing movies since the PCs I have suck and aren't connected to a good TV. Hopefully they'll work this out. I have FiOS so I'm ready to stream movies to PS3. Just make sure the interface is quick and easy (read: don't use current PS3 web browser). EDIT: Siesser, they removed the number of hours viewing restriction a couple months ago. I now have unlimited viewing w/ my 3-movie plan.
Yeah "mister 2 degrees" cant tell a difference between "fee" and "Free". Jesus...
Really? That's great. For the most part, I just use it to watch Dr. Who, as they still don't have that many titles available (only 5 out of my queue of 73 have that option at the moment). Sorry to hear about your having quality issues with it; guess it is something they'd need to work on. And I agree, the browsing/downloading/streaming with ps3 needs to be upped a notch to ensure decent playback.
Whats the "K" stand for?
He was coughing because he was elated while drinking a tasty beverage.
yea they were mentioning the netflix thing for ps3 and 360 for a wehile now....it would be sweet to see them have it
"Eccentric Fahrenheit creator David Cage was working on a PS3 sequel to his obscure PC adventure game Omikron, but has been canned because the story wasn't up to scratch. Instead, he's working on a mystery game to go along side the stunning-looking Heavy Rain." Do it Sony do it, purchase Quantic Dream for sexy game time. Then make them get the story to Omikron 2 back on track so we can get it since the original game never got its vision fully realized.
"purchase Quantic Dream for sexy game time" Best thing I've read all day :)
I might have to do that. I have On Demand already but Netflix seems to be a great addition to the movie lovers options.
BGE2 is the best news im set more movies thanks
i totally loved beyond good and evil AWESOME
would be the greatest.
Ubisoft in MGS4? A link between Assassins creed and MGS4? If the ending turns out that the entire bloody MGS series was just some genetic dream I am gonna be well pee'd off! And it'll be just as bad if Snake turns out to be a nights templar.
I had a theory that MGS3 was a simulation in that vein, but everyone kept saying I was crazy and it was too far fetched.
it better not be true or konami and kojima is gettin some hate mail.
The most hyped game, we haven't even seen official concept art of yet. They're killing me with this one. All they have shown is an engine with the most realistic in game character models. And this new Mystery game, will it also be using the Heavy Rain Engine? It would make sense. They need to start spilling out the beans on this stuff. The reason I'm so interested in this, is because I like drama in games, I like good plotline. Something that has been missing from games so far this gen..
BGE2!!! Such a perfect game to balance out the slate of other wonderful games we are getting :))))))))))
So if Ps3 offers Netflix plus blu ray.. What does that mean for 360 and its supposed DD era, If Ps3 offers the same service?? EEE 360 just doesnt have any edge anymore.. Man 360 is just looking old and obsolete EDIT: haha random disagrees with no defense.. You 360 owners would be more respectable if you actually defended your disagree instead of just hitting it and running
i certainly hope kojima didn't go crazy and allow any serious " connection" between MGS4 and the inferior AC. AC shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as MGS.
What was the "big daddy" of shooters in the other article referring to? No Bioshock?
I'm guessing the "big Daddy" of AAA shooters isn't Bioshock?
The believe it to be Cold Winter 2. I dont know by what definition Cold Winter was a AAA FPS though. As for the comments at the entire mgs series being a not real, that would be funny indeed. You finally beat the game and you see a cutscene of snake waking up before his first mission.
Would love to see a Beyond Good and Evil sequel as its one of the only PS2 games I actually deemed good enough to play on my triple.
