Rumor: Netflix is Heading to Sony's PS3 Console Soon


Sponsored Links
283w ago - Update: The rumor is now officially confirmed by NetFlix.

We already know of Netflix's plans to stream to Sony Bravia TV Sets, and in the past both a survey and CNET have hinted that Netflix may be coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

Today, according to the Associated Press, Netflix stocks are riding high after management announced they'll soon be extending their "watch instantly" Internet streaming service to a new "device."

Just what is this device? Netflix isn't telling - not yet, anyway. As of now, they've only hinted that it's "already owned by a large number of consumers." This, of course, has revivified speculation that the service will soon become available for the PlayStation 3 or Wii.

In fact, analysts are already betting the device they're referring to will either be the PS3 or Wii. To be sure, it's hard to think of any other devices the service could easily be extended to that are already owned by a large number of consumers.

And it'd almost certainly be good business for Netflix, as they credit their move to the Xbox 360 for spurring the influx of 2.4 million new subscribers since fall of 2008.

No indication was given for when Netflix plans to formally announce this mystery device, so it's wait and see for now. Keep your fingers crossed, PS3 and Wii owners.

I concur, it is easier to pay a monthly or yearly subscription then having to spend far more money on single rentals. I think Netflix is just trying to bring there content and pricing to more people on different consoles/electronics devices

If gamefly does actually make a deal with sony then i think that would be a great thing. But then again wouldn't it be the same thing if sony just released more games on the psn?

This is one feature we really don't need. Besides netflix instant has really bad titles available to begin with especially for movies.
