The lights are on
With the PlayStation Vita's February 22 launch date fast approaching in the U.S., it's long past time that Sony start emphasizing how this latest device is an all-around media machine and not just for games. Enter the hardware manufacturer's only gaming-related announcement from its CES press conference.
At the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, Sony revealed that a Netflix app will be available on the Vita handheld on day one. In addition to this news, Sony bragged that 6.5 million PlayStation devices were sold over the holidays, and, despite reports of struggles, the PlayStation Vita has already sold half a million units since its launch in Japan last month.
While the ability to watch streaming movies and TV shows on your handheld isn't a make or break deal for most gamers, it does add a nice bit of utility to the device. Anyone one step closer to buying a Vita when it hits our shores next month?
Nice feature. Extra features are always bonus!
That's a nice thing to have included. Now I can watch FLCL and other shows on a portable screen that isn't tiny.
Imm on IPHONE now, long has the portable device time for me past!
*** thats good to hear if only netflix would stop givin *** movies for online streaming
I really want the vita now.
can i pay netflix with paypal?
Great hopefully they will embrace the whole idea of apps like android and apple on there portable devices. Paid for mine outright but not there 3G model can't stand at&t. If there was an option the go with your own carrier then only then would I buy that model.
Hell yeah I'm getting the bundle and I already knew it was going to have a Netflix app it wouldn't make any sense if it didint. Im just wondering if your going to be able to use it like a computer. ?
I've got my Vita preordered already and netflix makes no difference. I am buying it for gaming anyways.
Netflix is pretty much standard at this point, especially on a system this powerful. i would have been surprised if it weren't on it.
Another reason I am happen to be getting a vita. It does not work too good on my cellphone, so I will watch netflix on the vita.
I'm still thinking about it, maybe I'll buy it down the road when it gets a bit cheaper.
I wonder why there was never no netflix on the psp?
I'm literally ecstatic about this news. I was already totally game for the Vita, but this is huge for me. Add a Youtube app and we're golden, Sony.
Gota love Netflix!!
