PS3 Netflix To Go Disc-Free Soon

Just like its Xbox 360 brother

PS3 Netflix To Go Disc-Free Soon
 
 

As promised, Netflix is prepared to launch a new version of its online video streaming service to the PS3, which no longer requires users to put in a special Netflix disc.

Yes, just like the Xbox 360 has been doing since the launch of Netflix on that platform, the PS3 will be receiving a dedicated app. Users will need only to connect their PS3 online account with their Netflix account and can begin streaming content on their game system immediately.

Currently, PS3 users must wait for Netflix to mail them a special streaming disc, which contains the app. The disc must be in the PS3 at all times when users want to watch streaming Netflix content.

The only rub with the Xbox 360 is users are required to sign up for the premium Xbox Live Gold service to be able to access the Netflix app. So far no such restriction has been announced for the PS3 app.

Sony confirmed today that the app will be coming out this month, as originally promised back in the summer.

The Wii will remain the only console that requires a special streaming disc to access Netflix content. Because of its limited hard drive and inferior system infrastructure it is highly unlikely Nintendo's system will ever see a similar transition to a digital app substitute.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
