netflixNetflix is finally coming to the Sony Playstation 3.

While it has been rumored for quite some time, Netflix has finally announced that its streaming service will be coming to the Sony Playstation 3 very soon.  There is, however, one hitch for those who start using it right away … you need a Blu-ray disc to make it work.

Yep, you need a disc.  You will need to contact Netflix to get a free Blu-ray disc that will need to be in your PS3 any time you are streaming content.  This is only a temporary workaround until Sony updates the system software in 2010.  Still annoying, and it makes you wonder why Netflix didn’t wait to launch the service, but oh well.

This now leaves the Nintendo Wii as the only current generation video game system in the United States without Netflix streaming capabilities, so it makes you wonder how long until that system also receives it.

We here at StarterTech stream Netflix via an Xbox 360, and we love the service.  Sure it isn’t perfect, but for the price, you really can’t beat it.

    It works if you disable the Internet coetocninn. Just disabled the Internet and mine works fine now. This happens for several movies and works when done for all of them.
