The best Netflix app for your gaming console

I told many friends and co-workers that the Playstaion 3 Netflix app was superior to the Xbox and Wii apps, but times have changed.

Over the last few months the Microsoft team has continued to improve their app, while Sony has broken theirs with failed improvement attempts.

This past three days i've had nothing but problems with the PS3 Netflix app, failing to connect, failing to load movies, etc. At the same time I can switch over to the Xbox 360 and get exactly what I want in seconds.

With the addition of Kinect voice control to the Xbox app I also find it very handy to just use voice commands to control Netflix with simple commands like "netflix pause", "netflix play", and "netflix stop".

Until next time...
