Sony came to CES and what seemed
to be mostly on the company’s minds was its TVs, cameras, tablets, phones, and
caged celebrities like Kelly Clarkson and Will Smith. Games seemed to be less
on their minds, though possible future Sony president Kaz Hirai dropped some
PlayStation info. On top of sales stats and listing some of Sony’s proprietary
services coming to the Vita (Music Unlimited anyone?), Kaz then mentioned the
movie streaming juggernaut Netflix was getting fast tracked for the device.
Following Kaz bragging that the PS3 was very
popular with Netflix users in North America, he then noted that the film
powerhouse’s streaming service was destined for the PS Vita. He wasn’t making
any promises, but the goal is for the service to be ready for the February 22
launch. If they pulled it off that would be quite impressive, as it took the
3DS months to get that feature. Do you think Netflix will make the launch?
