PS3 is the largest Netflix streaming platform

Postby Toasted_PSP » 04 Dec 2012, 21:52

Make sense really, its not hidden behind a paywall on PS3 and almost every single PS3 is hooked up to a TV making it the perfect platform for the service. I bet SmartTVs are broken down to makes which will spread those users out between brands.

Sony didn't offer a break down of users by platform.


Surely that kind of break down would come from Netflix themselves rather than Sony.

What else would PS3's be hooked up to! :shock:

So less people are playing games on PS3, and watching Netflix instead?

PS3's netflix is way better than 360's.

I was using my 360 for the longest time, then tried it on the Ps3 and it's just a way better implementation, which is weird because the 360's software was initially fine until they changed it at some point this year, now it went from pretty good, but not as good as PS3's to "holy s**t this sucks".

I had used it on 360 for about 2 years or so. I just started using it on PS3 and the interface is much simpler to me. I don;t mean this in a good way either. I found it much easier to use the interface on 360 to find exactly what movies and shows I wanted, but for some reason, for me on PS3 it doesn't always show exactly what I am looking for. No idea why, but it is all just so different.

tried using the search? it finds everything in the catalogue, assuming you are spelling what you want correctly. i've never had a problem finding anything (that's on netflix) anyway.

I guess Xbox owners are too busy playing games. PS3 media whores. Xbox game sluts.

ive got both an xbox and a ps3, and even have a media centre pc hooked up to my tv (total media whore.) Ps3 is easily the best viewing experience. and it amazes me the Microsoft insist on denying access to a paid service, if you dont happen to have their paid service too. guess which one im gonna switch on every day? the free one. if the ps3 wasnt sat next to my xbox, maybe i could justify still paying for gold, but I cant, because I get more, for free, on ps3.

Sony may be struggling due to mistakes in their past, but recently they are doing plenty of things right.
