Though I wish they talked about “hard numbers” or even percentages when announcements like this are made, it’s interesting to note that “PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system is now the primary development platform for Netflix and is the world’s most popular device for viewing movies and TV shows from Netflix on a television.”
Almost with exaggeration, Netflix is available on just about every electronic device on the market today and has “more than 30 million streaming members globally” so the fact a gaming console can attain “most popular” status is quite an accomplishment.
More from the official release:
“PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our No. 1 platform overall,” said Netflix Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings. “PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3.”
