Microsoft Responds To PS3 Netflix Announcement

When the service launches in November for Sony’s console, PS3 owners will not be required to pay an additional charge outside of the monthly Netflix subscriber fee of $8.99, unlike Xbox 360 owners who need an Xbox Live Gold membership.

"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. 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."

Netflix on Xbox 360 does hold at least one advantage over the upcoming PS3 offering. PS3 owners will have to use a Blu-ray disc containing a Netflix access program in order to “instantly” stream movies and TV episodes via their console. This compares to the service offered on the 360, which appears on the user’s Xbox dashboard and requires no special disc for access. Analyst Michael Pachter said yesterday that "this intermediate step” for the PS3 offering “was taken in order to comply with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 exclusive arrangement with Netflix”.
