Netflix Comes To The PS3

After more than 11 months of Xbox 360 exclusivity, Netflix will be making its way to the PlayStation 3 next month.  Starting in November, PS3 owners who have Netflix accounts will be able to stream “thousands of movies and TV episodes” right from their consoles.

You can head over to netflix.com/ps3 right now to sign up to be notified when the service is available, and to reserve a free “instant streaming disc.”  Yep, you heard that right: at least “initially,” Netflix on PS3 will require a Blu-ray Disc to be in the PS3 in order to stream content– probably due to the fact that Netflix on the Xbox 360 requires syncing a console with a code, maybe that’s what this disc is doing.

If you’re a PS3 owner looking to open up a Netflix account, the minimum monthly plan that allows for Instant Watch costs $8.99 a month. Not bad a bad deal — especially considering that Xbox Live Gold Members still need a fifty-dollar-a-year account to do it.

It’s also been rumored that Netflix will be available via the Nintendo Wii within a year, but there is nothing concrete to support this as of yet.

HERE is the Official Sony/Netflix Press Release. (Written by Nick Creature)

Left 4 Dead 2 is a multi-player, first-person shooter that has players taking control of one of four survivors as they try to make it through a zombie-infested New Orleans.  The game focuses on cooperation and team play.  It is the sequel to Left 4 Dead, arguably considered to be one of the best multi-player games of 2008.

Those who’ve pre-purchased Left 4 Dead 2 for on PC via Steam, Valve Software’s incredible online digital distribution store, can already start pre-loading the demo.

Early access to the L4D2 demo is also available for Xbox 360 customers.  Those who stop by a Gamestop to pre-order it should be able to pick up an early access code and be ready to play tonight at 11pm when the demo launches on xbox live.

If you’re any kind of a zombie fan, then you’re probably already loading your shotgun in anticipation just like I am.  See you online tonight.  And remember, aim for the head and always save the last one for yourself just in case. (Written by Nick Creature)

Stephen King Under the Dome Interview

Stephen King is back and ready to make your hair stand on end with ‘Under the Dome,’ a complex novel about society and humanity with that signature King touch. PopEater is proud to exclusively premiere an interview in which King discusses ‘Dome.’ “There’s a saying that people have in Alcoholics Anonymous, which is ‘You’re only as sick as your secrets.’ Some of the people in this book are pretty sick indeed, and let’s put it this way, I think readers are going to be engaged, but I don’t think they’re going to be totally surprised by some of the things people are holding back because we have them in our own lives,” King says in the interview. Watch it HERE.
