Netflix announced this morning that their streaming service would arrive next month on PlayStation 3. The service has already available on Xbox 360 for Xbox LIVE Gold members for nearly a year now. Microsoft, being the first console manufacturer with the service, has responded to the announcement today.
“The Netflix experience on Xbox LIVE is unique and reflects our commitment for social entertainment.” a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN. “We believe we offer an experience today that is a generation ahead of what others are offering,” the spokesperson said. “For a little over $4 a month Xbox LIVE Gold membership is hands-down the best value in home entertainment, and gives you exclusive access multi-player gaming and early demos as well as Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Last.fm, “1 vs 100″ and more.”
I doubt anybody pays for Xbox LIVE Gold solely for Netflix? Either way, how will you be using your Netflix service? PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360? As for me, I guess it depends on whatever controller is closer to me.
