Netflix on PS3 gets 1080p, adds 5.1 surround, loses the disc
Nice, but I already have all this built into my media server, and PS3 can’t show my photos and movies the way frankenputer can.
However for the average gamer Is this enough to make up for the game gap on the PS3? (Microsoft and Nintendo both have very popular exclusive content for their game boxes…)
Microsoft thought it was being all fancy with its dashboard update that brought search to Netflix, but Sony has just announced its own competing update to Netflix streaming. Starting October 18, you’ll be able to access Netflix on your PlayStation 3 via an app; no more disc needed. That’s not the best part, however, as some content will then be available in 1080p, with 5.1 surround sound.
