The first footage of Netflix on the PS3 has emerged online.
we should b seeing some 360 vs ps3 vids up soon
Especially with 360 getting 1080p upscaling.
looks soo good already + we start out with the full catalog :)
NO! an article from "lensoftruth.com": Netflix Service Video Comparison PS3 vs xbox 360 lol It can't be more ridiculous XP
i wish we had Netflix in Canada :(
well the PS3 now got it all if you are in the US you get blu-ray and netflix world wide you still got blu-ray
I just got my disc in the mail just a minute ago! :-) I haven't tried it out yet but from what I could tell, its a DVD. It makes little sense to give out thousands of blu-ray discs when they could give out cheaper DVD's instead (considering that the disc isn't used for any more than communication between Netflix and PSN)
Godmars290: upscaling? Where? Or are you talking about the 1080p streaming thing? (which is native)
You anime nerds. Show us some of the new releases for Drama, Horror, and Comedy. I don't care about anime it's fake.
This is not real HD...lol
I'm with John madden on the more content thing. Sure it takes time to grow but where the heck is my Dexter season 3 and new releases at least in the 1st few weeks?
Isn't the 360's streaming suppose to be going to 1080p depending on connection? Called it upscaling since its suppose to downscale if you don't have a proper connection.
Does anyone really want this? All the Netflix streaming videos are lame or really, really old. I will stick to PSN and have new movies.
So you're going to spend $30 or more to watch one whole old anime series, or a flat $9 a month fee?
I have never used Netflix before. But with this. I'm going to subscribe. Question: the $9 subscription has unlimited streaming...right?
yep, who cares. Blu-ray is better.
Yes 9.00 a month for unlimited streaming. I received my disk today in the mail. Watched the Big Lebowski and the quality was good. I used my 360 for netflix but now I don't have to pay a live membership to do it. I say give it a try before you judge netflix, it really is worth it.
Bluray is soon nearing its death. DD is the future.
hey i saved my self 50 bucks on geting the office season 5 and i can watch any episode 1-4 any time i want to granted it doesnt have any outsdanding movies but this does get pretty good TV series also this season of Heroes also been adding Some MSKT 3000 episodes to so overall its ok not great but a plus to have if you have netflix.
bots start to cry
Unlimited. Use to use it though PlayOn, but they were raping me at $2 more for BR mailing, so I canceled. Not going back just for this.
LOL you truly think bots will cry over this lol Wow your so lame.
makes netflix on the ps3 a much more attractive proposition....
Just popped it in and am watching South Park. Problem free! No queuing either!
When do you queue up first on the 360? That was the old version. It has long since been updated with categories. Granted, you do not have the entire collection of movies in th cats. The PS3 version when I tried it is just like the Roku version. Yes, you can update the queue via the browser, but you are still adding to the queue first.
I use the iPhone app to add to the queue.
The HD looks great with little compression artifacting and the interface is intuitive and fast. Love it!!!
video bitrate! YAAAAAY! I'd rather rent a blu-ray for 25-30 MB bitrate.
Too many awesome games out to be watching movies Dude 1: "Hey man, so how are you going to be spending the best year in gaming so far?" Dude 2: "Eh, I'll be watching Netflix" Dude 1: "So why even buy a PS3?" *EDIT* @ 6.2 Touche It's a nice feature, but I'm just swamped with games at the moment. I just run to Blockbuster if I want to watch a movie. I don't do it enough to subscribe to any services right now.
Funny stuff! Yeah I'm playing Dragon Age now, can't even think about movies. Hell, I am only on season 3 of Sopranos, but I can't find time with these games.
It is a new feature on the PS3 that people have reason to be excited about, instead of ripping on it in a forum why don't you just not use the feature and continue gaming like you had mentioned..
I'm with Dude #2, I want this
More bandwidth for everyone else!
Ah! Not Fearing the Darkness; Shine Brightly! Super Fun Time with Much Happy!
You have to use a disc for netflix streaming on PS3 WOW this is sad EDIT:Just got done trying Netflix on PS3, First you can't even use the XMB bar while in netflix, second there's not that many titles, third the interface sucks, come on now this is supposed to be next gen, do I really need a disc for streaming?
You only have to use the disc till 2010 .
I know right? Having a disc in a disc drive is crazy huh? OMG why would they do that with the drive? Don't they know you cant't use it while you are watching movies unless you are playing a DVD or BR? WTF! you mean I can't have my game sitting in the drive doing nothing while I stream stuff from netflicks!?! This would all be so sad if I was a total idiot.
ya I guess with the constant disc swapping needed to play games on the 360 the last thing you would want is to have to put in is yet another disc.
Won't even try to talk sense with an obvious mental lightweight.
"do I really need a disc for streaming?" are you honestly complaining about that while the 360 still has so many issues to deal with?...
using it now. it looks neater and easier to navigate, its all up/down/left/right as opposed to having to button mash on the 360. the 360 loads each page faster. I threw my back out so i'm not going to run from room to room or connect them to the same tv yet but i think the ps3 version shows more movies in each genre section. also there are two ways to sift through. the main way is similar to the 360. choose your section, move to the left, press it or go down to view the info. the second way is when you choose to go down to view the info ont he ps3 version, you can go left to right in that section and it will load faster but you wont get the larger boxart, more like thumbnail view. i'd say the only winner here is the netflix users. doesn't matter which one you use over the other. for me it will be based on which room i am in at the time. I can only expect it to get better for the ps3 version loading wise once its a full XMB app and not through BDLive.
I actually have streaming on both machines at the same time and funny thing, my 360 netflix is giving me full 4 bars and my ps3 is at 2 bars. I don't get it. WTF I was going to move my 360 into my bedroom cuz i am not playing many games on it now, but if the ps3 isnt giving me the same stream speed on the same cable internet line I don't think I will. WTF
Edit: Like I eluded to in the other thread http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... , The PS3 version works as well as all the others. They are much the same once the movie gets started. That is all that matter. The only reason I will not use the PS3 version is because I have a Roku in the living room; and my 2nd 360 in the bedroom that I use really only for netflx (My old UK 360). Anyway, if I do not have Neflix in the PS3, I can have UC2 in there instead. I am currently being crushed by crushing
Is the family that has netflix & a ps3. No extra charges. No hidden fees. No fear of failure. Larger selection & the ability to rent Blurays & BDLive. It's fast, fun, free entertainment by our blessed ps3. Ps3 again proves free is good & better means more. I don't see how anyone can argue paying more for less on shoddy equipment. With all the money you save not paying for xboxlive & Microsoft points you could have bought a surround sound system or a HDTV. You could have bought more games & movies. Instead you paid 3X for party chat & avatars. I guess the NXE experience is meant for the little girls tea party. That's not hardcore. Hate me! I only play playstation.
I'm American, I have netflix, I have ps3. I save money.
I have a Roku and the PS3 streaming disc is fine. The interface is fast, the quality of the stream is fantastic and I'm having no scaling issues (watching Night of the Living Dead with my daughter as I type this). If it is this good running off a disc, I can't wait for the app. Good job Netflix! You've shown there IS good BD-Live code out there ;)
I actually had used the Netflix streaming as a "reason" to buy a 360. There are games I always wanted to play on the 360 but never was reason enough to shell out the money for a console. PS3 is my primary console, with this netflix thing happening it will be even more my primary. (easy to teach the GF to use) Off topic: I did buy GoW2 for 15 bucks from gamefly. pretty damn fun in horde mode i gotta say!
Streaming Paul Blart right now. Lols. Actually a lot funnier than I thought it would be.
Blu-ray movies look a hell of alot better then Netflix righ now, the Blu-Ray quality movies are Awesome compare to Netflix's movies streaming quality so
I see ps3 fans begging for scraps like netflix.1080p stream on 360 droids remember that.
we aint beggin for it. 1st comment alone proves that. you know why? because we have bluray. now gtfo forever flamer.
I was with Netflix for 3 years. Great service because I could not get cable where I lived. Now I have cable, I dont need Netflix. The streaming stuff is all old content that very few care about. You want old anime, go to the movie store and get them for less than a buck each. Who cares. As for beggin for scraps.. what, my console works, does yours? (as a heater maybe).
pretty solid for a temporary use of software till the actual app gets to the PS3 next year. good job sony/netflix.
I can't wait to get my disk!
i wonder what the people who wrote 360 better cuz netflex feel now. LOL and twitter which ps3 can easily access through web browser. ms is sh!tting theirselves lol MS 1: "hurry, add myspace support to 360" MS 2: "but the ps3 already has access to it, lets try something innovat..." MS 1: "do not say that word. it is strictly prohibited in ms" MS 2: "what? innovative" MS 1 "*pulls out shotgun*"
Mine just came in the mail. Time to give it a shot!
Not bad, not bad at all. 480p for Rocky III. So far so good.
Canada needs a damn video store. -_-
Any one else more interested in the wallpaper of evangelion then netflix? :) me likey
ps3 retards. someone with the time should look back in the ps3 idiots post histories and see what they said abotu the xbox netflix when it first came out.
You have got to be fooling yourself... The same can be said about the morons who thought Netflix would never come to PS3. Seriously, kid... go crawl back up that dark hole you call a mother. Oh, and thanks for admitting that you 360 fanboys love to waste enough time and a life just to look up comment history from.. what?.. 2-3 years ago?
I admit i prefer the ps3 over the 360, I like the netflix interface on the ps3 and i don't mind the the disc.... But I hate to say it but the quality of the streams are much better on the 360 i just compared lost season4 ep 1 on both systems and it looks a bit blurry on the ps3.. just my two cents
I use the PS3 web browser to watch tv shows like The Office and 30 Rock using megavideo. It works very well for me. It actually streams very quickly most of the time. I like the idea of Netflix, and the monthly cost sounds reasonable because I can watch anything I want anytime I want, but I'm not about to start paying for something when I can get it for free. Is watching Megavideo illegal, by the way?
it is just okay...like a un-upscaled DVD. I'll use the lot, but will get Blu-Ray for the movies I really want to watch.
