Native Netflix Hits PS3 Oct. 18
Posted on Thursday, October 14 @ 22:18:48 Eastern by Daniel BischoffSick and tired of having to stand up off the couch and put a different disc in your console? Netflix doesn't want your atrophied legs to gain any muscles, PS3 owners, making it safe to stream movies again this month.
PS3 owners will be able to stream their Netflix with a healthy helping of 5.1 channel surround sound. In fact, the PS3 will be the first and only electornics device with that ability, at least for right now. Here's hoping your long wait is compensated for by surround sound playstationeers. Yes, I just invented that term.
While I can appreciate Netflix for the sheer amount of value inherent in their subscription package, I have to cry out on behalf of all Playstation 3 owners and ask why the hell disc-less streaming has taken this long while the 360 has had it since the beginning.
As far as I can tell, there's got to be some Netflix-Microsoft partnership act somewhere that's required it for as long as it's taken. Streaming Netflix on your computer requires Mircrosoft Silverlight, but that program is available on Macs, Sony Vaios, Dells. Does the hardware matter? Why the wait for PS3s?
