Attention, PlayStation 3 owners: want to watch a movie streamed instantly from Netflix via your PS3? we got terrific news for you; very soon you'll be able to do just that.
megaton indeed out of curiosity what happens to Sony's own video store? wouldn't that become obsolete?
What happens to all the PS3 supporters who dissed on Netflix just because it was on the Xbox 360? Surely they won't support it now.
no netflix only has about 12,000 movies and very limted hd movies but its still pretty good ive been using my xbox and its good they have all 5 seasons on the office wich i watch constantly lol
they are reborn into netlfix fans. im a ps3 owner and im thrilled i can get this on my ps3 now. Read my comment below to see why netflix on the ps3 will be great combined with the video store.
Netflix here I come
i got an xbox and i already dont use it i just like to hold what i buy in my hands
"What happens to all the PS3 supporters who dissed on Netflix just because it was on the Xbox 360?" Probably the same thing that happened to the people who ragged on the PS3 for being a movie machine when the original Netflix + Xbox news broke.
I guess Microsoft must have had a 1 year contract of exclusivity with Netflix.... the amount of things that were heavily touted to be "Xbox Exclusive" this gen. that eventually made their way to the PS3 is just crazy. I'm calling it right now, next year I wouldn't be surprised if Facebook and Twitter comes to the PS3. On Topic: I'll personally stick with Blu-ray, but it's good to see that PS3 owners will have even more options for entertainment in addition to the PSN Video store and BD's.
Netflix probably saw how much PS3 units sold in US last month along with how much it sold in three weeks world wide. NPD September PS3 - 491,800 units sold Worldwide - 1 Million units in three weeks Netflix dude #1 " Holy Sheit, Look how units they sold!" Netflix dude #2 "Quick, End our contract with Microsoft, lets get a jump on these new PS3s!!" Sony's Dark Vader " Muhahaha, its all coming together" End Dramatic reenactment In the end, Netflix just is another welcome addition to what is already at a great value, the PS3. PSN Video Store, Bluray, or Netflix . PS3 = choice. Now PS3 is the most complete entertainment console out there in the market. Well, for those that want to sign up for Netflix, here it is. https://www.netflix.com/NRD...
This is U.S only, right?
Welp that's one thing XBL supporters can scratch off of their "con" list for why XBL is superior. Once cross game chat comes, I really want to hear why XBL it's better...and if the answer is "because more people use it" then they're trapped in a corner lol.
and i just got a 360 so i can watch netflix, lol i guess ill keep it for the exclusive DLC wish they made more game for it. this is a huge victory for sony, when they say "it only does everything" they meant it only does EVERYTHING Plays Blu Rays Plays DVDs Downloads Movies Via PSN - Watch Movies on Wifi spot with PSP Steam Movies Via PSN Now Stream Movies Via Netflix & u dont need to play sony to access this service on PSN, i never understood why microsoft is making me pay 50 a year(i know is not just to access netflix) so i can pay netflix another 8 a month, they should make it so that even silver member can access netflix ohh i almost forgot it plays the highest rated exclusive of 2008 & 2009 and most likely 2010 i wonder if they will do some type of connectivity with the PSP? Also This is NOT going to Kill The video store, in the Vidoe store i can see recent episodes from my favorite shows something netflix doesn't have but netflix has a huge back catalog, if i want to watch the last episode of family guy just stream it on PSN or watch the first episode of lost just ill go to netflix, this is a win win, and no sony fee for having my system online
good new for fellow ps3 owners i still rather download my movies and stream them myself since its free :)
Nothing, they have more choice. still blu-ray is the best way to watch a movie.
Yea i'm thinking so. I'm in Canada, Don't have it on my 360, nor do i have the Video Store on my PS3 unfortunately :(
Almost every blu ray player that has been coming out lately already offers netflix. So meh.
They are no longer just a side attraction for the xbox 360 and now have multiple sources to really take advantage of online distribution. Now that they got their wish, I hope they work on their product. I want to see more movies that I actually want to watch and regular updates to the movie selection before I buy into netflix for my PS3.
This is what made Xbox360 compete with Playstation 3 in terms of a movie machine. Ps3 now has the Playstation Movie Store, Netflix, DVD, AND bluray. Playstation, once again, is the entertainment industry driver.
"I'm calling it right now, next year I wouldn't be surprised if Facebook and Twitter comes to the PS3." The PlayStation 3 has a web browser that runs both just like on a PC (the intended platform).
Good for PS3 owners. I was planning on buying a 360 this year for the supposedly superior online, but I dont see a point now. Also with the possibility of Valve jumping on PS3, I no longer see a reason to get a 360 anymore.
another one bites the dust...
No, the video store would not become obsolete. Unless I'm mistaken, you can't buy movies or shows from Netflix but you can through the video store. Granted, it would be just as easy to stream them from Netflix, but you wouldn't be able to keep it.
Yeah, im kinda curious about PS vid store? Just another option or what?
It was only a matter of time. I will use Netflix with the console that has the best interface. Reserve your Netflix disc before everyone else does. http://kotaku.com/5389731/p...
netflix online does not offer new releases and still has a limited selection. The vid store currently has a much better selection of movies as far as being popular. Netflix online generally offers movies that are somewhat out of the public's eye. Still Netflix streaming movies has potential of growing.
Ok, I am now cancelling my "Renews every year" LIVE membership. The facebook and twitter features dont appeal to me at all.
