HD Netflix Streaming Comes to Microsoft's XBox 360 First

100°
320w ago - It's something you can't get on the Roku. Nor on LG's BD300. Nor on Samsung's P2500 / P2550 Blu-ray players. Nor through Netflix's own "Watch Instantly" portal.

It's high-def Netflix streaming, and it's coming first to Microsoft's Xbox 360. Yes friends, when the all new dashboard hits on November 19th, with it will come HD Netflix streaming for Xbox Live Gold members.

You should know that this is only a "soft launch" with about 300 titles available for now, and the litany of details you're surely craving simply aren't available at present time. At any rate, we'd say things just got a lot more interesting in the world of digital downloads, but there's really no need.

The real question is: when will everyone else follow suit, and how quickly can we expect current Netflix streamers to get the HD upgrade?
 

Reeves: Play PS3 games while listening to streaming Vidzone movies

200°
329w ago - Worried that PS3's streaming Vidzone music videos were going to get in the way of your games? SCEE president David Reeves is here to quell the fear.

"People said, 'I wish I could listen to the music, and see it as well,'" Reeves told us, speaking at Games Convention in Leipzig last week.

"Because you can listen to it - you don't have to see the music video - and play your game at the same time. And that to them was very important."

The Vidzone service - which allows streaming of music videos to all PS3 users in Europe for free - is to launch early next year. A download service for similar content is scheduled to hit towards the end of 2009.

Joost is great if you don't want cable and you apartment company won't let you get satellite. Unfortunately it doesn't work with any game consoles, though it works great with a PC connected wiimote.
