The statistic took into account all gaming consoles and set-top boxes, totaling in the hundreds, that can stream the company's 25,000-strong video catalog.
"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," noted Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO. "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."
The PS3 was the first to offer Netflix in full HD (1080p) with 5.1 surround sound.
Added Jack Tretton, CEO and President of SCEA: "The PlayStation and Netflix communities both share a strong passion for high quality entertainment. Netflix provides a fantastic experience for watching TV shows and movies on PS3, and our joint development will continue to produce innovations for our customers that further demonstrate PS3 as the true home for entertainment in the living room."
